Radio Room Photos


April 2008 Russ Lloyd, who is building an RC chaser model, met Robert DeBow, the nephew of a submarine chaser crewman who served on subchaser SC 299; and Mr. DeBow kindly allowed Robert to have scans made of the photos.

Many of these are interesting and excellent shots. I'll be posting quite a few over the next few months. For starters, some exciting, rare images of the radio room on SC 299 are posted this month. Any below-decks shots are rare; and these are very nice, clear images of the radio equipment used on the chasers -- which, at the time, was brand new technology.
