“Plywood Bastard” nicknamed PT boat in South Pacific. My father was a gunner on this PT boat, he is now 92 yrs. old and can not remember the number of the boat or the squadron number. His name is Lannie Hendrix and he was stationed in Espiritus Santo, New Hebrides. He was later on another PT boat and then a skipper of a Picket boat nicknamed “Stardust”, but he can not remember the number of that boat either. He was later a Shore Patrol in San Diego.
