Hello Frank,
I as looking at the photo of the PT Boat in drydock and it looks to me that the number on the boat is PT 303. I want to thank you for all the photos you are putting here on the Message Board. My Uncle was killed on PT 320 and his name was GM3c Vernon A. Manley.Thanks Bill Manley

Frank;
Thank you. As I mentioned to you PT 308 (La Dee Da) was the first PT Boat I "found". My only wish is that I could have done something for her, she was the only ex-PT I have seen in original condition(before restoration), just sitting on the mud bank in Dagsboro Deleware. The sad photos I have are all that is left of her.
Thanks again,
TED
