I met up with Steve Nugent yesterday...he is the son of Harold Nugent, one of the skippers of the 210. What a treat he had for me! I was able to get photocopies of Ron 15's war diary and the majority of the relavent action reports.

This of course meant that I was up into the wee hours reading it all...neat stuff! I am of course left wanting more details; the diary is very brief and the action reports only elaborate a little more on only the bigger incidents and operations but still it was an awesome read.

Now I have to integrate this info into pistolpackinmama.net...but I am thrilled to do it. I wish I had more to "trade" with Steve - but the only 210 items I had to offer was two pictures of the boat in drydock.

I have the Maker's plate for PT 210 that was located in the chartroom. It reads: U. S. S. PT-210, DESIGNED AND BUILT BY HIGGINS INDUSTRIES, INC., NEW ORLEANS U. S. A.

That's a great artifact! How did you come across it?

I found it in an antique mall here in Minnesota many years ago. It was carefully mounted on a walnut base so it was obviously important to someone. I bought it because my Dad was in RON 13 in the Pacific theater.

If you ever decide you want to let it go...I can put you in touch with a family that would probably love to have it!

What a small world, huh? To find something like that sitting in a store just waiting for you to buy it...great find!

Hi Larry,
Since you are the owner of the PT 210 name plate, I hope you have a
picture of it that you can post it on message board. I hope to use it in
my book AMERICAN PT BOATS IN WW II second printing. You will
be credited of couse.

Victor,

Larry Smith graciously sent the 210 Makers Plate to me last year ( thanks very much again Larry ). I will take a digital photo and get it posted to the message board for you. I have not really gotten the hang of posting photos, so I'll enlist some help.

Also, I always wanted to ask you if your publisher is still in Atglen,PA. I live less than ten miles from there !
