I was there in 63 with Bendix and Jeff Burris. Off to the left on the
Lagoon side was FAA dependent housing. Off to the left those Quonset
huts was the Island store that was run for profit to supply the Island
children with books, paper and pencils. If my memory serves correct,
you could get a bottle of B & B for $3.00 US.
Jburris1940 ! Would that be Jeff Burris that worked with Sonny
Wagner (KB6CQ) back in 1963 ?? I was just going thru some pics of
the Mercury site and our living quarters. Sure would like to hear from
you or any of the other Bendix people.

It was forbidden to dive on this wreak. But I think maybe some members of the dive club did.
A-site radar techs drove this regularly. Nesting sea turtles encountered frequently.
Fred Campbell and Charlie Dog's pack. That's probably Tommy Oliver with them.
Hey Aras- can I copy and use this photo? Do you have any photos of the wrecked PBY over on the English side beach?Tom Maxwell
