Good Morning -
My name is Rodney Robertson and I am the son-in-law of
Edmund Plezia who served on the U.S.S. Bennington during
Second World War.
Before he died, he presented me with a hand drawn and
colored map measuring approximately 18"x28" and titled
Wartime Track of USS Bennington Feb 10 - Aug 9, 1945.
It is a beautiful chart and one that, I feel, should
be viewed and enjoyed by many.
Is this something that your organization might be interested in?
I have attached a digital picture which, while it is
too small to appreciate the detail, will give you some
idea as to exactly what I am talking about.
Although my father-in-law was, among other things,
an artist, I do not know if this map is of his own
creation or the work of another. Please let me know
if you would be interested in this piece.
