Got it Jerry, thanks much.

I will convert it to PDF and then post it a little later.

I found my original digital files, I'll post the "print publication" one along with your website copy.

Thanks again,
Dick . . .

Linked here are two versions of the “Along with cousin SAM” document, The two documents are the same except for the addition of a few photos that were added to the website version. The photos aren’t necessarily germane to the story, other than being of the same time period and mission area. They were not part of James Throsby unpublished document as sent to me, early on, but I believe added form the Peter Tare library.

The first link is a .DOC file from Jerry Gilmartin which was taken from the website prior to its demise (the file has been converted to a PDF file for ease of use.)

http://www.ptboatforum.com/Along-with-Cousin-Sam-docu.pdf

The second link is from my drive archives back in 1997, where my firm reproduced the document in two forms. This linked version was to be printed and handed out to attendees at the 1997 Peter Tare Reunion. The copy supplied here is the print published version which is formatted as a book. My other archive, not linked, was just the original recreation of the text file only for use on the Peter Tare website.

These will be added to the “Document” page soon.

I’m very interested to hear the memories regarding these two gentlemen. My name is Chris and I’m the grandson of James Herbert Throsby. I have many memories of him as a wonderful grandfather, so down to earth and family orientated. He was a Major with the 36th Battalion (dubbed Ike’s Marines). The battalion had a lot of heavy service in PNG. My grandfather was attached as a liaison to the USN PT operations. It’s so nice to hear the perspective of the USN. It’s ANZAC Day today here in Australia and one of my sons who is an Army Cadet had his role in the ceremonies along with his unit this morning, early. Just thought I’d share a comment. Kind regards, Chris

Hi Chris!
Did you already read "Along with Cousin Sam" that is linked by Dick (Moderator) two posts before yours? It is a very good read.
