Photo 003 My uncle was a radioman on the Dyson. I have a few of these although this one is the most specific to DD 572. Some are signed Nimitz some Halsey and a couple Macarthur. Key words are Rabaul, Palau, Solomons, Bougainville, Buka, Kavieng, Cape St. George, Empress Augusta Bay. I don't know if you could use these. If you would like what I have I can email them to you or even send a cd snail mail. I scanned them at 300 dpi but can reduce them like the one attached. Contributed by: Tim Sprader
