Location: Port Ludlow, WA (on the Wild Olympic Penninsula)

For the first time ever the total collection of WWII Submarine War Patrol Reports will soon be available by on-line and CD purchase. This is the culmination of a massive effort to have the microfilm records of some 256 boats and 1,547 patrols brought up to current technoloogy.

These reports have been languishing on microfilm since the late 50's - almost 50 years now. I first presented the opportunity to handle this project to USSVI but found that the E Board would undoubtly take more time to agree on the project than most of our WWII sub vets have left before leaving on eternal patrol.

Therefore a new partnership has been registered in the State of Washington called "Submarine Memorabilia" by myself and a couple of very good friends. More info to follow within the next couple of weeks. For pricing (at this time) think rather than the +/- $30 per boat for a roll of (basically unusable) microfilm, we are looking at flexible purchases from a single patrol for around $7.50 + shipping, to a boat's average 6 patrols at around $35.00 all the way up to the full set for the researchers and authors at less than $1.00 per patrol...

If you are interested in this opportunity to have your own war patrol reports, it's not to soon to get on board by contacting me at: webmaster@usssealion.com ...
