Harrie,
Great shots, if I go back to Seattle, I’ll try to get shots like this, maybe at McChord.

Thanks so much for taking such detailed photographs for me, Gyro! I just saved them all to my reference collection :-) Just awesome! What is the history of the Turner Joy? Did it ever get torpedo damage itself? I have a piece removed steal hull section that I think if I remember correctly came from that ship? Now I gotta go look threw all my pictures :-) Slickrick, gave it to me many years ago.

This ship was attacked in the “Gulf of Tonkin” incident which pretty mcu got the U.S. into the Vietnam war.
