Hello Ted:

Interesting topic. I am adding a paragraph from my book Deadly PT Boat Patrols.

"At Panama, ten of the twelve boats of the recently reconstituted Ron TWO were divided into three groups; the first was made up of PTs 36, 40, 44, and 47; the second consisted of PTs 43, 59, 109 and 110; the third was of PTs 111 and 112. PTs 113 and 114 were playing catch-up aboard Suamico. The first group was hoisted aboard Robin Wentley on October 8 and 9; the second group was secured on October 10 aboard Roger Williams. Over the following three days Kenmore took aboard PTs 111 and 112 and PTs 119, 120, 121 and 122 of Ron SIX were raised into position aboard Fairisle. Lt. Westholm was aboard Roger Williams, berthed on PT 109."

I realize that there are a couple of conflicts with your earlier posting but I spent a lot of time on this and I think I got it right. Not certain of my sources now (a combination of deck logs, etc.) and all my research material is packed away.

This is what makes this all so darned interesting, though.

Here is the watch quarter and station bill for PT109 while loaded aboard the SS Stanton. It shows Kempner and Larsen as the CO and XO of the ship. Jerry

Allan;
My previous post? My post on this thread only referred to transit from Norfolk to Panama.
Take care,
TED

Hello Ted:

Thanks. That explains the difference nicely. My post referred to movement out of Panama and into the war zone. Sorry for my not understanding your reference.
