Would you please do me a favor? Would it be possible for you to crop the photo to just focus on the 63-foot ARB in the background? It looks like one of the ones used as special ops boats ...
: While at NARA on my last trip I came across
: photos of this captured ex-Italian
: "Semi-Sucide" boats that the
: Germans operated off the South of France in
: late 1944 and that was captured by a
: PT-Boat. The idea of these boats was to
: point one at a target, bailout on a small
: lift raft and when the boat struck the ship
: a small demolition charge would drop a depth
: charge so that it exploded under the target.
: Among the photos was even a nice drawing of
: the captured boat.
