My thanks to the Maine Maritime Museum for inviting me to speak at the 36th Annual Maritime History Symposium in April, on life on a WWI chaser. It was a real pleasure, both presenting and meeting other attendees, and the staff are top-notch both in their knowledge and in being very kind and dedicated people.
If you're in Bath, Maine, the museum is a great place to spend a chunk of a day. Having spent a fair amount of time preparing for the conference, I spent proportionally less time posting new content. But while I'm no closer to "caught up" with the collections I'm working on posting, there are some interesting new items, and as always, more to come!
