The blog today returns to Adrian’s Navy experiences.  There were no personal photos from this time period as there have been for previous entries.  The Melville was on the move and not really in places conducive to “fun” shore excursions since this is a time when the war was so intense.  Please choose “Navy – Late 1943 to May, 1944.”
