This month lots of new images have been posted to the site, including a nice shot inside the pilot house of SC 355 (I think). Any interior photos are rare, especially those showing areas other than the engine rooms, so these are always of interest.
Also there is another addition to the Hull Numbers Collection, now approaching the 60%-of-all-chasers-shown mark, with a nice shot of SC 5; and some additions of better images to some of the chaser pages, from a collection recently donated to the National WWI Museum.
Everything outside my window is turning yellow and orange with splashes of red, as we move into fine fall weather. Enjoy,

It's getting harder and harder to fill in the gaps in the Hull Numbers Collection, so it's nice to see another one come in. Recently added is a nice photo of submarine chaser SC 5, courtesy of Quintin Aspin
Arthur C McKenney (whose grandfather possibly served on SC 307) recently submitted a number of images from the service of SC 307:
I especially like the shot of the officers sitting just outside the pilot house.
Tom Brady recently posted on Facebook scans of images in a scrapbook from that includes photos showing his grandfather, William Manville O'Connor, who served on SC 284 and SC 355. I've just started to post some of these in The Subchaser Archives, on the SC 355 page. More to come!
