|46k||Model of the PGM-18 built by Joe Kelliher of the PCSA.||Bob Daly/PC-1181|
|01||LTJG John C. Bigham, Jr., USNR||28 November 1944 - 1945|
|02||LT David E. Shotwell, USNR||1945|
The PC-1255 was converted to the PGM-18 at the Dade Dry Docks Shipyard in Miami, Florida during September thru December, 1944.
NOTE: This is the last page in the PGM-18's official smooth deck log. Smooth deck logs are reconstructed from the rough deck logs and the quartennaster's notebooks. These were lost when this vessel was sunk, due to enemy action on 8 April 1945. We can continue the history using the deck logs of the PGM-29 and personal notes from former crew members.
