Dinah Might In Action!
These photos were taken by Emerson Cole while XO of the PT-171 in late 1944. He very graciously donated them to the PT Boat museum in Fall River, MA. Many thanks to him! The typed text are the notes written on the back of each image.

My grandfather frequently told me about days like this - racing other PT boats. Always brought a gleam to his eye.
Mr Cole was very sentimental about the burning of the PTs on Samar.
