Guys,

Some time ago, I found a great photo on the internet (or posted here?) of a closeup of a PT sailor, a gunner in the forward turret of an 80' Elco, wearing a white T-shirt and the Army & Marine Corps fatigue cap often seen worn by PT men. It was a large photo, taken from the cockpit, facing outboard starboard, with the guns pointing forward, or at least to the left of the photo. It wasn't one of the standard PT gunner photos everyone's seen over the years, and I haven't been able to find it again.

Can anyone point me in the right direction, or post the photo to the Message Board, if they have it or know of it?

Thanks in advance.

I think I have the original of that photo in my collection. I do however have to dig for it. When I have it, I will scan it for you. Just send me your E-Mail address........

Could you just post the photo - I can't speak for everyone but I try to capture every photo I can get just for my files - every time someone is looking for something that someone is going to email I think "I'd like to have that one also" but don't feel comfortable jumping in as asking to be included on distribution. Thanks
