A couple of new images of RON 15, from Fank J Andruss, Sr's collection:


RON 15 PT BOAT PHOTO'S



#15-01 Picture one shows Ron 15 Higgins boats in Palermo. Boat to the left is PT217. Notice the boat's markings on the chart house next to it.



#15-02. This shot again shows Ron 15 Higgins boats in the Med. Boat to the left is PT 214. I just love the boat with the shark mouth bow. Not sure what boat it is.

Frank;
The Zebra next to 217 is PT 208 otherwise known as "EIGHT BALL".
This was one of two boats within RON 15 that carried the Zebra(adapter) pattern into the MED. A few other boats carried a variation of this with different colors.
Take care,
TED

Thanks for the clarification on the EIGHT BALL. I can add that to the back of the photo. I love the shark mouth Bow on the other photo. Wish I knew what number she was..............

Mr Andruss,

My grandfather was an officer in Ron 15 and Captained PT 214. I was wondering if you have any photos that show that boat?

Thanks,

Hi Frank,
The Sharks mouth Boat is PT203. A personal freind of mine was brother in law to Milt Hagen MoMMC who had these pictures. I posted them on the message board a few weeks ago. I thought you saw them. By the way, Bob was the artist who painted the sharks teeth on PT203. Jerry

RON15 boat, PT203


Here is the names on the back of the photo



Here is another shot of some of the crew.
