Help - is 'HMAS Lil John' a Halvorsen?????
on: October 7, 2014, 03:47

Hi Everyone,


I am a new custodian of a lovely old boat and am trying to get some help in identifying her make.


It is a 1941 or 1942 38' raised deck timber boat that was part of the Naval Auxiliary Patrol based out of Brisbane.

Attached below is the link from the Australia War Memorial with a picture of her in the mission grey during service.


We understand she served up to PNG during WW2.

However it is priving difficult to verify as the records of the day are very sketchy.


If anyone can shed any light it would be appreciated. We are keen to embark on a mission to save and restore, however the early paint schemes and other key information simly is not available..


Regards,

Chris in QLD


A new boat owner, have decided to make a small fortune out of a large fortune by restoring a 1941 timber boat, if any medication is available to cure the diease please let me know!
