  • Photos and articles Posted on November 23, 2007 06:19 pm Name: Scott Hunsicker

    Comments: I was going through some old family photos. Found a dozen or so of the USS Canberra apparently taken by my father, Ralph Hunsicker, during WWII. Also a couple of newspaper articles regarding the torpedo damage, one with a large photo showing a sailor standing amidst the damaged engine room. Don't know if this sort of material is of interest or if it is pretty common stuff?

    I am working on a project that would be very nice if I could get an audio tape of Captain Rosenburg giving a talk to the crew over the 1MC. If anyone has their old tapes that we would send instead of letters and it has the C.O.s talk, I would love to hear from you. Ed Huntington X Div Photo Lab
