I think my favorite part of looking at PT photos is seeing the "nose art" or the names of the boats/guns/etc. I don't know what it is (maybe my sleep-addled brain) but "LA-DEE-DA" gave me a chuckle this morning.

Thanks for the pics!

Thanks for the 308 pictures. I can't wait to show them to Crew Member Walter Pirog, who served on the boat as Motor Mac.

Frank;
Alyce Mary told me when I purchased these that Walt had sent a bunch of photos into PTHQ, She also gave me his address, but this was 12 years ago now. During this time frame, while I was still in Panama, Vern Peak had written me the nicest letter about 308 and the possibility of restoring her, a month or so later I had wrote him back with a big letter just chock full of questions. A month went by and I didn't think anything of it, but the next month the latest version of the PT BOATER came out and Vern's name was on the last patrol list. To say the least I was shocked, He was always a very social man and he and his wife were always going on trips or to functions somewhere. He was just non-stop.
Talk to you later,
TED

The batch of photo's I put up on the message board were photo's that Walter had given me ( I am sure you saw them ) The jacket I have in the Exhibit and the Binnoculars were given to me by Vern Peak from PT 308 several years ago. I will try and send a photo of the Jacket for the message board. Matter of fact, I think that photo is already one that I posted of my Exhibit. Will check.
