Hello Will Day and Frank Andruss and all PT Boat message board members.

I am searching for a few good photos of some specific PT Boats that some of our PT658 restoration crew served on so we could maybe put a picture of their boat on their bio pages on our website. I need photos or electronic jpeg etc of the folowing boats:
PT24 [Ron 1]
PT27 [Ron 1]
PT127 (Ron 7)
PT131 (Ron 7)
PT150 (Ron8)
PT185 (Ron11)
PT205 (Ron15)
PT238 (Ron20)
PT245 (Ron20)
PT 236 (Ron20)
PT323 (Ron 21) we already have the post kamikaze wreckage photo

If you guys have any photos of any of these boats I would sure like to get a copy. Please let me know.
Thanks, Jerry
PT658 crew

Jerry: I've got half-a-dozen shots of various boats (some of which I'm sure you've seen). I'll gather them up and send them along.

Hello All,
I want to thank the several people that have sent me photos of the listed boats! They are very helpful and this board is the greatest! I would especially like to thank Frank Andruss, Will Day, CJ Willis, Wayne Traxel and Paul Bacon for sending me various photos. I still am in need of a few more, namely
* PT236
* PT238
* PT24
* PT-168 (Ron 10) This boat is new to my list which I somehow overlooked.

Thanks everyone for taking the time and effort to find these pictures and send them.
Jerry Gilmartin,
PT658 crew, Portland, Or

DID YOU GET PHOTOS OF THE LAST LIST OF BOATS? I THINK I HAVE PHOTOS OF MOST. PT 24 AND PT 27 WERE JOHN AKINS BOATS, HE SENT ME COPIES OF HIS PHOTOS YEARS AGO.
I CAN SCAN THEM AND SEND THEM TO YOU, SEND ME YOU E-MAIL.
TAKE CARE,
TED

Jerry,

Who on the restoration crew, was on the 205 ? I'm interested because of Ron 15.

Hi Steve,
One of our crewmen, Frank LeSage was a Gunners mate 2/c on the PT205. You can see his photos on our Save the PTBoat website listed under "Photos" and then "WW2 PT veterans" The boat when he was on it was called "Ramblin Wreck", and he was there for the invasion of Southern France and also Bastia, Corsica etc. Jerry

Thanks Jerry,

If I run across any pictures of the 205, I'll make sure to send them out to you.
I hope you and all the crew will have a great Fourth of July.
