527 Light Pontoon Company, photos from Bud Pendergast
#1

Attached are some of the photos my late father, O.W. "Bud" Pendergast took.  I don't know any of the names or locations, but they give a sense of what life was like in the company.  After the war ended he transferred to a harbor craft company, so some of these pictures might be from then.

Every now and then, especially if I wake early, I enjoy a journey through the latest posts on Marion's website. I was attracted to this post by the great photos and agree with both Todd and Marion that the photos here are an awesome collection. I particularly like the framed medals and badges, which I suppose is one man's WW2 history. Also in the photo of the truck, the young boy in light coloured shorts and shirt with his hands clasped behind his back would be around the same age as me if it was taken in 1942! The first and fourth photo remind me of the English seaside town and port of Margate near where I was born on the south east UK coast.
