    From Dad's archives. For some reason they had a parade on Ie Shima - I'm guessing it must have been VJ Day. This 'float' screams of Dad's cartoon drawing style, so I'm sure he designed it. "Jug Junior" is in his squadron markings (333rd FS, 318th FG), with his initials on the side. Not sure where they found a woman to paint the name!

    Hellcats, PBY Catalinas, and what appears to be a single SOC seagull floatplane.

    USS Thetis Bay en route to Alameda with a load of war-weary aircraft. The Duck and Seagull look so similar I can't tell which one that is (though NavSource says it's the former).

    The cage masts never did anything for me. I preferred the military masts of the old armored cruisers. But, for my money, the 1943 rebuilds of Tennessee and California were the best aesthetically. But, I'm a fan of all of the old standard-type super dreadnoughts.

    Took some pictures of a ring for a customer today and it automatically backed itself up to icloud, so I thought I'd show off my handiwork.
