James;
Do you have a boat number or squadron in mind? While nothing indicates a boat was called "Devils Den", seven boats did have "Devil" as part of their names.
Take care,
TED

A boat number is what I was searching for. Someone in a Facebook group is trying to track down the number.

I do show a Richard R. Welsch in the PT boater list, but only listed for RON 12 which was in the SWPA.

Am asking for Colin Wilson. He as a flag from that boat. Here is what he knows. "PT Boat commanded by Edwin R. Welsch. His boat was known as The Devils Den"
