Torsk in 1945 - New Photo

Postby Gilbert » Thu Feb 23, 2012 9:11 pm


Roy gave me the heads up on this photo, which was posted on the DBF group on Facebook.

It was taken from USS Balao by Roger Lemon RM2(SS). The words on the back of this photo were: "Transferring an injured man between the Balao and Torsk, 1945".

This should look familiar to anyone who has watched the video that plays in Crew's Mess. The transfer of B D Wolf GM2c is shown from Torsk, as they flood down forward and the raft floats off and over to Balao. This took place on 29 May 1945.
