Hello, I found this sight looking for information on my grandfather's duty in WW2 on a PT boat. I dont know what number he was on, and cant find out, so this is why I came here to see if anyone knows of a database with names or may even know themselves. I figure this si the best place to ask.


His name is Wade Umberger. All I know is that he served around Borneo mostly, and not much more.



ANY push in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Dan

No joy, Chief. Did you try contacting HQ on this site?

Chief Dano,
You can see crew photos of all RON35 Boats on Navsource. Maybe if you look at all the crew photos for PT510 through 521 you may recognize somebody? I just checked and every one of those boats has a crew picture posted. They were based in England so most are wearing dress blues in the pics. Good luck!
