An article in the July 1944 Motor Boating magazine mentions Bulkeley in the Med:
http://books.google.com/books?id=zJugQH_JKIYC&pg=PA108&lpg=PA108&dq=pt+boat+deck+cleats&source=bl&ots=7hoK7Qqa-p&sig=XY_pup3r59E38m7h5Vs6qyatz1Q&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CCQQ6AEwATgoahUKEwi4ndTd5I3HAhUFVh4KHduoAG4#v=onepage&q=pt%20boat%20deck%20cleats&f=false

A Higgins ad on the inside front cover mentions post war plans for a Higgins helicopter. Elco has an ad on page 26. Ads from Annapolis Yacht Yard and Harbor Boat Building mention PTs, and several other ads feature PT boats. I also enjoyed seeing the old graceful designs of all sorts of boats.

Jeff;
Yes the jack of all trades was there too. At the time he was CO of USS Edicott (DD495) during Operation Dragoon.


Lieutenant Commander Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., USNR, Commander of the Special Operations Group's Eastern Diversionary Unit, Captain Henry C. Johnson, Commander Special Operations Group (CTG 80.4) and Commander John D. Bulkeley, USN, Commanding Officer of USS Endicott (DD-495) (listed from left to right) On USS Endicott's bridge during the Southern France Operation, August 1944. This may have been taken after the 17 August engagement that sank the German (formerly Italian) corvette Capriola and the armed yacht Nimet Allah. Courtesy of Rear Admiral John D. Bulkeley, USN.

Cool image, thanks Ted. How fitting having an actor commanding the diversionary unit.
