Here are some additional videos from the NARA. This NO. 002 Clip is 15 minutes long and consists of three separate clips, all from 1943 and around the New Guinea area. PT 152 is featured in much of the video. Just as the last video posted, showing the Elco 77's at Pearl, these combined clips feature a period piece Public Domain sound track that I assembled and added to the non-audio clips from the NARA.

Nice Dick, lots of interesting things to see in the clips. Was that Felix The Cat artwork I saw on PT 135?

I noticed the top cut off of an early mast along with an early radar setup in this shot:

Thanks so much Dick, I enjoyed watching that very much. I loved the part showing the floating dry-dock. They make it looks like child's play. Love, Love, Love the Music underlay. It just happens to be some of my favorite music.............GREAT JOB DICK

Dick;
Nice job once again! It was nice seeing film footage of VADM (Then LCDR)Bulkeley, CO of RON 7 in New Guinea. They color footage in nice too. The boat in the drydock, I sure wish the camera guy filmed the number, I have been trying to figure that one out for years, as I have a still of it.
Thanks again.
Take care,
TED

Dick,

That was great - thanks! So that's where the color clip of the green 80' Elco at speed comes from...

Did you catch the 37mm anti-tank gun on the bow of 152? Similar to the one mounted on PT-108 and the type intended for the 109 when she was lost.
