I'm new to the board, Anyone know what PT squadron was at Bougainville? My father was a "CB" and I have photos of his unit unloading a "PT" Boat off of a small ship at the PT' base the"CB's built there.

Hello Thurman:
Welcome to the message board. You will certainly find it enjoyable here with great people to boot. Several squadrons come to mind that operated on Bouganville including Ron 5,6,10.11,20 & 23. These are the ones that I know of although there might be a few others that I have forgotten. You can contact me at mosquitofleet@comcast.net. I would love to have any copies of photo's you might be willing to share. Good luck and welcome to our little family.......

Thurman: For a look at PT ops in and around Bouganville, see Bulkley's book AT CLOSE QUARTERS, the "PT Bible"......

You have to change the [IMG] to lower case image within the brackets at the begining and change [/IMG] to lower case /image within the brackets at the end.

Always use image not IMG and /image not /IMG

I've changed your address below so the image will show:
