|The Carroll J. Downing Collection hosts more than
40 photos and more. The CD with the original scans is available, along
with our other collectibles. See the "How You Can Help" page for
Photos all have handwritten names on them. We set them
to text here for the purposes of the search engines... Doing the best we can. Names are
matched against the
ship's log when the ship originally sailed. If we find what looks
like a match, we name the whole name.
Leyte aka Leyte Gulf
This photo and the ones like it intrigued me the most, even when I was a
little child looking at the scrapbook.

writing days. Mostly good. Some bad. Special thanks to daughter Margaret
for the excellent translation here.
