Refueling at Sea/1944

The USS Wachapreague fuels PT 194

In a dramatic photo from 1944, the PT Tender, USS Wachapreague provides fuel to one of the PT boats enroute to Leyte Gulf to take part in the unfolding battle in the South Pacific. The vital role played by the PT Tenders comes to life in this picture showing the sailors on both boats getting the job done.

My thanks to Mark Kreig who shared this photo on a Facebook PT Boat group.
