Putting Noseart on a P-47 Thunderbolt, placing it into history
Scanned by C. Jeff Dyrek

Everyone has his own remembrance of the boat and the early days on the island.  

But the things we wish to preserve most vividly in our memory, often have the tendency to fade too quickly.  The following drawings are an attempt to recapture those first experiences, and perhaps, a few will make those fading memories sharper.  They were sketched on the island by D. C. Jones.

From the Webmaster:  The above statement was written in 1945, this page was made in 1999 and the visions and memories of D. C. Jones are still alive, probably much more than he had ever imagined.
