Hi Scott, I would be happy to post yours if you e-mail it to me. Just click the envelope icon right above this message.

The only one I have is this one labeled as the 248 at Bouganville 1944. It is, uh, unique.

Scott sent me some of his images to share. Two of them are his Father, Arthur J. Campbell, at a 20mm on PT 248. The others are of PT 248 at speed. Thank you Scott!:

Scott;
Welcome aboard I am sending you a PM with QM1/C Ned Ganley's PT 248 crew photos. He was on the boat with your Dad.
Take care,
TED

Scott & Jeff D
Thanks guys for these pics! The second one of Scotts Dad on the 20mm helped answer my question about rags. That 20 looks like it is apart for maintenance and what is laying on the ammo locker, a white rag! This looks like a match to the ones seen on the 109 in the color photos from Ken Prescott.
Does this make sense to you guys?

Thanks!
Jeff
