Hi, I am looking for any pictures that anyone might have of PT-108 and her crew. My grandfather was Wilbur Bowman and I am trying to create a family tree. Also if anyone has any memories or storys that they know of they would be greatly appreciated. My grandfather would never talk about the war and died long before I was born, so there aren't many things known about his time in WWII. Please email me at jess@photosofmyworld.com Thank you.

There is a website devoted to the 108 boat. The Lil' Duck has been talked about quite a bit on this message board.

I would also recommend buying Dick Kereseys' book PT 105,. It has many references to the 108 boat.

Thank you for the replies. I did check the website and did find one picture of the crew. I believe that my grandfather is the one on the far left in the back with the hat on. Thank you for your help in finding this site and picture. It is a joy to see these pictures and be able to share them with my family.
