My Dad, Francis J. Colligan proudly served on PT 512 (Ron 35). I believe he was on it from the shake down to its sale to the USSR.

I just returned yesterday from Battleship Cove with my 17 year old son Connor. He never got to meet my Dad but it was great to have him on the same deck I was on with my Dad some 25+ years ago. Don Shannon was kind enough to let us aboard like Sizzler did when we visited in the 80s. We were lucky enough to get him there before he passed. Don also let me in on some info I never knew, Dad was with Ron 12 in the Philippines but the boat was unknown.

Anyway, my son is now fascinated with the PT's. Other than the Navsource single picture on the deck of 512 (bottom row, 3rd from left) can anybody steer me in the direction of photos of the 512? I've searched this site, most current links and countless image searches. ANY help would be sincerely appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi Pat, welcome to the board! Glad to hear your son sounds like he will be carrying on the interest in PT boats.

I checked my images, sorry but no luck. Al Ross posted an image of 3 returned Russian Elco 80s but no numbers are visible: http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=3591.

Good luck with the search, please post any you might come across.
