Photo of the Week
June 6, 2004
To publish a photo that had connections with
D-Day and events in the English Channel, I post this wonderful vintage
photo of a 65' "Crash Boat" tied up at Cristobal Pier 9 in
These boats were built during WWII for speed and were very fast.
Their initial mission was to rescue downed fliers between England and
France during WWII. The were powered by two 12 cylinder gas
engines. This one ended up after the war as a 370th EASR support
This photo was submitted by CZ Images contributor Herbert M . Jaggi, Jr.
God Bless all our military,
past and present on this D-Day anniversary.
