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.
