Thanks Al. I had seen this footage before, and I still get goose bumps seeing the first of the Elco boats. Thanks for posting this, which I would love if it ran several minutes.

Hi Al,
Great movie of PT 9. I tried to down load the PT 9. Is there a way to eliminate all the
writing?

Here a British version of the same thing (with sound).

At this site, if you type in Motor Torpedo Boats in the search window, you'll find a couple of other British newsreels on American PT boats
