Response to Re: DesRon 29 Officers



Midshipman photos of Talbot & Parker are in Dan Mullin's ANOTHER SIX HUNDRED, for those curious about them, and both of their Academy years noted as well. I can post these if anyone is interested. Mullins includes pix of a number of other Asiatic Fleet DD officers also, incl. Wm. Mack, J.E. Cooper, ? Cross?

I am enclosing a rare photo of another AF officer: Phil "Budge" (AKA "Oscar") Wild, Jr. of EDSALL, with his wife Marjory before the war. It was sent to me by his daughter, Skip Wild Harrington, who wrote one of the first good papers on EDSALL in the January 1980 issue of SHIPMATE. (This should not be reproduced without permission.)

Wild is also in the Sept. 1940 crew photo of EDSALL, taken at Shanghai, China.
