From : Hunter Williams <plusloans@msn.com> (May 2004)
Subject : Navy Log Films
My wife just inherited 8mm films that appear to be the original Navy Log
films that were the basis for the TV series:
Specifically she has:
"The Lady & The Atom" "Formosa" "Operation Typewriter"
"The Gimmick" "The Sky Pilot" "Tazzoli"
3 films she has that were not indicated in the series are:
"Navy Frogmen" "LST 799" " Mediterranean Patrol"
There is one other film not identified but that she thinks is original
footage of either D-Day or the Battle of the Bulge. I have yet to
watch them so I do not know.
Do you have any idea who might be interested in something like this?
Your thoughts are appreciated.

In a Navy Log episode there was the story of a UDT team sent to blow up a
train tunnel in North Korea. There was a support destroyer, call sign
"Deadly" beyond radar range in the event the team needed help.
Since I was in operations on Deadly, USS Orleck DD886, I remember the event
well. USS Orleck is now in Orange, TX being restored as a museum. That
episode would make a great addition to the ship's history.
Is there any possibility of getting a copy of that Navy Log episode?
