Supper for USS Threadfin536 viewsA dinner which my parents attended at the dockyard? The sub USS Threadfin was in for propeller repairs in January 1960. The US guy is George Millard Allen Jnr, Lieutenant junior grade, front right. Poking her head round is my mum Joyce Day, same side sitting is Elsie Murgatroyd. Can't remember any others. any siblings recognise their parents?
I was able to tour the sub whilst in dry dock - no photos!
