    Actually l had to check, as these Northern NJ towns run pretty much into one another-and l thought it might have been docked at Bogota....not Bogota, Colombia, but Bogota NJ hahahaha!
    P.S.: if you do come to this side of the pond look me up, and the first 20 beers are on me...............

    Corpcasselbury; here is the photo of the battleship l took to be the "USS USS California(?) -the envelope , for some reason was marked "California pictures", but l was informed it referred to photos of a parade held in SanDiego...The BB is, of course the "North Carolina"., as you pointed out.. :roll:

    Yep, that's the "Showboat", as NORTH CAROLINA was nicknamed during WW2. She has been repainted and now sports a blue toned camouflage design. At least, she did when I visited her.
