    The surface battle amplified the realities of war, bringing submariners into close contact with survivors and potential prisoners of war. Truly unsung heroes, no less than 30, merchant seaman were killed while serving on Allied convoy vessels during the conflict. In Julythe Soviets attempted to wrest the small island of Someri from the Finnish. The game is centered on the control of sea areas.

    The 35 mm camera I used for the pictures was a lot of fun as I got my film over at the Navy yard in Charleston which was from the left overs of full reels of new film. It was the old cruiser U. The Soviets at least managed to sink one of the two main Finnish minelayers: Riilahti was torpedoed and sunk by motor torpedo boat TK Stubborn was then heavily damaged by escort ships, and had to be towed home, with her crew acting as balance weights to maintain the submarine on an even keel after her after hydroplanes were jammed 'Hard Adive'. The majority of the crew survivedonly lost.

    Edison was commissioned at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and went to sea in early Earlier officers, almost all long detached from this ship, are not listed. German artillery was set up at Juminda peninsula and Finnish and German torpedo boats were put on alert. John Ward did the Log which took him some time as he has to go bck through the actual ships logs to get the data and information.

If your copy of WAS is like mine, it's beat. The Soviets at least managed to sink one of the two main Finnish minelayers: Riilahti was torpedoed and sunk by motor torpedo boat TK The recording includes actuality of the Sunderland in flight, and crew intercom recordings.

I measures the length of a 35mm roll of film in a cartridge with a string and then woould then pull that length from the bulk roll and put it in the 35mm cartridge to fil it up.

All of us old-timers felt we would never make it from that operation. Now the map has sort of a grainy look to it which I for one like. My prose could never match Bud Cloyd's letter recalling Edison experiences.

Bud is now, as are most of his shipmates, deceased. Her targets on 2 September were German long range gun batteries on the small island of Cezembre off the French port of St Malo in Brittany. From 16 through 27 June, Finnish naval forces successfully protected the evacuation convoys, after which the ships were disarmed and scuttled.
