William B. May: Panama Canal Collection

March 2008 William B. May served as commanding officer of submarine chaser SC 292. T

his chaser and 24 others were built at Bremerton, Washington, and traversed the Panama Canal. After the war, some of the chasers built in Washington state made a return journey. William May's daughter, Penny Thompson, recently submitted an excellent set of photos from the service of SC 292.

This month is posted a set showing SC 292 and other chasers in the canal.
