My late father's collection of official Navy photos from his 1944-45 USNR service as Chaplain to these Coast Guard facilities may be seen on Dawn Taylor's blog for the Hatteras Genealogical and Preservation Society. The ones in NC were posted in March 2011, and the ones in VA and MD were added a few days ago. Most of the photos are of life-saving stations (LSS), but a few are beach patrol stations (BPS), radio direction finder (RDF) stations, watch towers, or just the pier where he had to meet a USCG boat.I thought they might be of interest or use to somebody who follows this forum and wouldn't otherwise run across them.
Very nice photo set. Nice to see all the diffrent genealogical socs commenting I did not know there were organized groups online for diffrent areas.
Thanks for sharing; those are really excellent photos!
Excellent photos. Thank you!
Cool. Very cool.
I am about finished with a new book (Copyright 2012) by Kevin Duffus, on the OBX and WWII. It is pretty well written, IMO, and worth the read. Reference: Duffus, Kevin, "War Zone", Looking Glass Productions, Raleigh, 2012.
