There are a number of very crisp, clear videos of PTs, each averaging about 2 minutes in length, at: http://www.criticalpast.com

Enter PT in the search window.

Those look like (maybe) rack-mounted Mk. VIIIs on that one passing shot.

Nice link Al, thanks for posting. While surfing through the pages, at about 10 was a clip of Devil Boats. I was surprised it was in color. I had only seen the B&W, which is the one I posted on YouTube.

Thanks again, great find,
Dick . . .

Thanks for sharing that Al. I got sucked into watching video clips for about an hour. I especially liked the footage in the Green Islands and also the one at Pearl where they pulled the torpedo and did the maintenance. I saved this link.

I was fortunate to pull it from a thread over on STEELNAVY. A bunch of guys have been posting a wide range of clips covering mostly larger warships, many in color.

I just finished watching my tenth one. I love some of the footage, which is in color. I like the fact that you can purchase still shots from the films, which will come in handy for me. Thanks Al for grabbing this great footage. I like the Green Island footage, which is over 5 minutes.............

The pictures of Green Island are very interesting to me. These films were supposedly taken on Mar 12, 1944 - according to my records our Squadron 19 arrived at Green Mar 11, 1944. All the Higgins boats shown in the film are Ron 19 boats because we were the first Higgins squadron there. The 237 boat shown in the film was a Ron 19 boat. I do not recognize any of the personel in the pictures. The night the film was taken (Mar 12, 1944) we patroled between New Britain and New Ireland about 25 miles south of Rabaul.
