James;
Without a date,or a round about date, we are at a loss. I am pretty sure your Dad was on 107 when LT David Payne was Skipper, right or wrong?
Take care,
TED

In looking through my records I found no such incident on PT-107. Certainly some patrols made but nothing about injuries happening on those patrols. As you know or might not the 107 was lost in a fuel fire on the dock at Hamburg Bay in Emirau. In fact in that fire PT-63 was also lost.
