Hello Guy's, I am writing from Australia, my name is Katrina. I am researching information about Pt144 and its crew. My mother served in the AWAS in Cairns Australia in 1943, she had met a fellow called Cecil Eugene Sellers. Cecil had writted to mum in 1943 and on his letter head was written PT144 Base 4, c/o fleet post office San Francisco, California. Another letter had PT 144 Base 6 c/o fleet post office San Francisco, California. I have didcovered that base 4 was in Cairns and Base 6 was in Kana Kopa Papua New Guinea. It would be fantastic if someone could help retrieve a list of the crew on PT144 and any information on Cecil Sellers. Cecil had a mate called Harold Van Cleave and Frank has been helpful in finding information on Harold but nothing as of yet on Cecil. We are desperate to locate these 2 men and its possible they are no longer with us but finding their families would be great. The very last my mother had heard from Cecil was in 1970, his postal address was 1108 Mc Gowen Street Houston Texas. I have been in touch with the Mayor of Houston and my letter has been forwarded on to the director of the Mayor's citizens assistance office, hopefully they will be able to locate the whereabouts of Cecil.
Thanks Guys, Regards Katrina

Katrina,
I suggest you send an email to PTInc and ask for a roster of the 144. They should be able to send a list of all known crewmen alive or passed on along with addresses and phone numbers if they are or had been members of PT inc.
Good luck and G'day.
Marty

Dear Marty,
Even though the research desk is closed do you think someone could get the information for me. Also what is the e-mail address for PT inc.
Cheers Katrina

Katrina,

Hello.

The email address for PT BOATS INC is ptboats@ptboats.org. However, they are busy getting ready for the Reunion, so expect a long delay in them getting back to you.

Garth

You've got a question, I've got an answer.

Katrina,
if you would send me your email address I can give you an address at PT inc that the owner wouldn't want published but which might speed things along especially if you explain your urgent circumstances.
my address is: mjohnso4@hotmail.com

Thanks Marty, Looking forward to the e-mail. I do hope that I have better luck in finding these men this time. I'm doing this for my eldest sister who has been looking for her dad Cecil all her life and I would love for her to find him and his family, for peace of mind.
Cheers Katrina
