Where to get photo of the Japanese subs 1-11 or 1-9 or 1-10 and Liberty ship, William Dawes
A few months ago you were kind enought to assist me with info on the Japanese sub A1 type, 1-11. May I trouble you for help again.
Do you happen to know where I can get a photo of the 1-11 or 1-9 or 1-10 ? and Sorry to be a pest one of the Liberty ships, William Dawes.

Whilst I cannot find the William Dawes specifically, here is a photo of a Liberty ship underway, perhaps you could just indicate that hundreds of these sturdy ships were built, and here is one example, and they all looked very much alike.
Sorry I have not been much help to you on this occasion. I look forward to seeing the finished product.
All the best,
Again I'm in your debt. Your advice about submiting the pictures as an examples of the William Dawes and the 1-11 is a good idea. I'm sure the American editor will have better resources than I and will get the proper photos if he wants to really be accurate or use your examples. The same goes for the Australian and UK editors although
Thanks for your help again and will mention you in despatches.
