Hey, Lonnie.
Thank you for your interest; I donít expect you to use all of the pictures.
I have finally scanned the pictures that my father took while on NATO Operation Mariner in Sept. of 1953
while aboard The Bennington and the details and pictures of his rescue of Ensign Dickey who crashed his
F2H-3 jet on landing on the Bennington and his pictures of the 1953/54 Mediterranean cruise of The Bennington.
There are many pictures taken aboard The Wisconsin as The Wisconsin escorted the fleet on its way to England.

Feel free to select the ones you wish to publish on your web site and
give any credit you wish to then Lt. John Edward Pritchett.
He retired from the USNR at Grosse Ile, Mich. as a CMDR.




Thanks to
John H. Pritchett
Son of
John Edward Pritchett
