This has been an interesting month. Up in Maine, we are just getting past the longest power outage I've seen since moving here in the early 1990s. We had a strange, powerful wind storm that uprooted trees all over the place, taking out power lines (and cars, and homes ...). On our street, we lost power for a full week.
That, in turn, put me even further behind than I normally am in getting things posted. There are some excellent photo sets in the to-be-posted file -- but for this month, just a single photo, although an interesting one: Subchasers on Mine Sweeping Duty.
Can anyone identify the equipment on these chasers, forward of the pilot house? The un-covered one on the chaser on the far right looks like a large reel. My guess is that these might have been used in tests of using chasers for mine sweeping operations, but it's just a guess.
More coming next month.
