Victor,
Alyce has the original. It was published in the PT Boat newsletter (summer edition) in 1981. I have a scan of it but I suspect you need a better quality copy. Let me know. Thanks, Mark

Victor;
I originally thought this was his graduation photo, as he is in a midshipman uniform. However, this photo maybe an earlier photo, as all the photos in the USNA Class of 1937 "LUCKY BAG" Yearbook, are taken in dress blue uniforms.
Also, Scott left off a forward slash in the short cut address.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for your posting. However, as I clicked on the link you posted,
I cannot get any thing. What did I do wrong?

Victor;
You will be the MacDaddy of PT Boat guys if you can find one o him in the P.I. It appears that there was 1-2 cameras in all of RON 3, during this time and I believe at least 1 was lost. Al and Mark have always been the best contacts for this RON.
Take care,
TED
