Does anyone have photos of PT 516 RON 35 nicknamed FLYING JINI, Skipper was LT. Jim Mountcastle (RON 3(2) PT 46 XO and later Skipper).??

I have only seen a few photos, none are side views underway, this is what I really am looking for.

Thanks.
Take care,
TED

Hi Ted,

This was the only thing I could find. It's labeled 518, but when I zoomed in I think it's actually 516.

I just realized once you reach the WW2online page it won't expand. This is the same pic, from the search screen. I opened the image in a separate tab, before clicking through to ww2online.

Thanks Joe, I got this one already. I am really looking for a full side photo of 516. There are several more photos to this set, about 50-60. These photos are a mix of RON 34 and RON 35. Don Millman originally introduced us to this set several years ago.
I think there was a Navy Photographic Unit attached to the MTB base at Portsmouth, and the took most of the photos. When they got the word they were closing the base and turning the boats over to the Russians, I think the Photographic Unit made copies of this set for anyone who wanted them. The donator Susan Linden is Jim Mountcastle’s daughter.
Take care,
TED
