USS Corry taken in Malta about 1965. You can almost make out Rick Palmer at quarters on the torpedo deck. It was sent to Rick by Chris Hodge in England who is retired CPO electrician Royal Navy and lives near Portsmouth England where there is a photo studio that has a huge archive of warship photos. The photographer recently bought out the negatives from one in Malta where this came from. He is sending Rick a perfect copy from the original negative. There might be a few for the next reunion if you all would like.

Attached is a picture of the Corry's DASH taken sometime before it crashed into the ship. Does anybody out there remember that?

Med Cruse 1971

Submitted by Jonas Parsons HT2, 1970 to 1972

Thanks to Jonas Parsons HT2 we have some more very nice pictures to look over. Jonas found the patch in the bottom of a drawer, guess it had been there a long time. I was particular interested in the below decks pictures of the fire room or boiler room, we have many pictures above deck and very very few below decks. I spent 4 years in the forward fire room as we called it and this is the first picture I have seen. How about you guys looking around and seeing what you can find.

 

Jonas has made my job easer by adding comments to the pictures, just click on any picture to see an enlarged picture.

Thanks Jonas
