I am researching boats built in particular by Herreshoff in Bristol, Rhode Island. I will post a separate note about the crash boats, but for PT boats they all went to the UK and Russia. Some were returned to the US. I can find little on war time service or the fate for most of them and looking for any added info. Details below. Happy to share what I have learned but hoping for more. Thanks.

(8) 70’ Vosper Class PT boats (all to Britain/India) (BPT #29-36 which were called by the British MTB # 287-294)
Delivered March – July 1943

(20) 70’ Vosper Class PT boats (all the USSR) (P #430-449)
Delivered Feb – June 1944

Hi Greg. This should explain why there is so little info on the exploits of the lend lease Vosper MTB's that went to India (I had a similar question about the Annapolis ones that went there):

The Revell Vosper 1/72 Scale MTB is a pretty close approximation to the Herreshoff boats sent to Russia
