I'm looking for photos of the Higgins RONs commissioning ceremonies (RON 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 23, 30, 31, 32, 33, 43). I'm trying to confirm the camouflage schemes and armament fits of the boats when they first entered service.

Thanks.

Al

Al;
Here is RON 16 and RON 22;


I realize this is probably a useless photo, I had to post it, just because I love the idea of Hotdogs and Beer!! The Higgins Shakedown Skipper in the foreground loves the idea too!



Take care,
TED

Thanks, Ted. Actually, the RON 16 shot is very useful, as it shows me the boats were an overall color rather than a pattern such as the 31/5P in the RON 22 shot.
