Let # 44
« on: January 20, 2020, 12:38:41 am »
I believe Lieutenant  John Cannon was in LVT number 44  and the LVT on the right my uncle Sergeant Roy Johnson was in along with Howard Frost  mr. Frost sent me a photo of where they landed and I have a letter from Lieutenant Cannon telling me that Roy  landed  just to the right of him  does anybody know the number of the LVT next to LVt 44 on the right  towards the end of the birds beak ?  Thanks Roy

I am packed up for a move but I believe it was either #13-1/2 Wabbit Twacks or #20 Avenger. Both were returned to the States and Avenger was used during a War Bond drive. Number 44 was also returned to the States by the way. Al Guerrero would know for sure about all of this.
