MORE GREEN ISLAND PHOTOS



#6. Nice chart house view inside this Higgins PT BOAT. (unknown Boat)




#7. A great look at USO SHOW, showing everything CJ WILLIS mentioned in his post.




#8. Another look at GREEN ISLAND. I think CJ might recall this area.




#9. Medical Staff on Green Island.




#10. Dry Dock area. Not sure of the numbers on the boats ( Dick will enhance )




#11. Unknown Higgins PT Boat ( maybe CJ can identify the boys.




#12. A pretty good nest of Higgins and Elco Boats. Man, one well placed bomb and BOOM!!!!




#13. PT 236's neat and polished engine room.




#14. A nice look at Engine Room Panel. I believe this is PT 236 as well.




#15. Unknown Higgins on the move. Notice one crewmember (center) holding his ears........

Hello Frank,

You're first picture is inside the Charthouse of PT-108 of the Skipper in coverhauls and the XO shirtless one. Will find them and supply the names. It is one of several given to me in 1999 from the late Enrid (Bud) Neet of PTs 60, 117,108 and 323.

+1 on that Steve...and everyone is looking in the direction of the gun's aim (except for the guys holding their ears.)

Frank: Some observations as I view the pictures.
# 7 This was not at the Hope show. There was no band with him.
#8 These were the machine shops, just inland from the dock. These were built later, when we first arrived in early March 1944 the base was in tents.
#9 The officer is our Ron 19 Doctor. Mr. Bahnson. He provided the Medical alcohol in the grapefruit juice for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I believe this picture is the Sick Bay at Vella La Vella not Green.
# 10 We hit a log one time and was in these drydocks overnight. Mr.Sweet, Maintenance officer, had some fishing gear and we caught barracuda and a small shark off these docks.. Barracuda is edible and is very good.
# 11 I don't recognize the sailors.
# 12 This could have been during one of the shows because they usually didn't like that many boats to be together for fear of bombing and fire. When the USO shows were there Green was pretty secure by then not much chance of bombs.
