Bruce Petty author of "At War in the Pacific" and LCI(G)440
April 14, 2009
Small world. I seen your picture with Bruce Perry. About ten years ago I was corresponding with Bruce on a book he was writing about the war in the south pacific. Gave him all the info I had about the LCI(G)440. He did write me to tell me that the article didn’t get in the book. I had some of it put on the web page of the USS LCI National Organizational under stories.
It was Bruce Petty ( not Perry ) who called in on me, he was on his way to settle in NZ.
I guess it was his book on Saipan you had given him details of LCI's.
I did a chapter in his book At War in the Pacific.
