    Uploading progressing, but it will take a week or so to get all 118 up there.

    BTW, I am NOT responsible for the graphic.

    First ten uploaded, 108 to go.

    (The process will slow down a bit due to shore leave over the weekend.)

    (Contact the SPs if you don't hear from me by Tuesday night.)

    Okay, Plan B. I'm uploading the smallest ones first. So if you want to see something, just click the link and see if it works yet.

    And the Archives just delivered. I am deeply in lust at the moment.

    Great stuff. I watched the Marines on Tarawa. Amazing footage.

    Back from Chicago, reload resumed. Forty-one more files before phase one is completed. Give me 48-72 depending on the attitude of the Internet gods.

    I've enjoyed watching these, OP.

    I would love to see the originals, some of them are a tad fuzzy. In the "Fighting Lady" vid, there was view of what I thought was the USS Alabama in Kwajalein, but I could not clearly make out the bow number. Not complaining, though, thanks for posting them.

    It that was Kwajalein, that was Alabama, I'm betting. She was there. (Gunfire support analysis in the pipeline.)

    If you ever seen a rehabed BB bows on with a bunch of landcraft in the foreground, chances are very good that was Alabama.
