Title: Recruiting Poster featuring Motor Torpedo Boat (PT) commander Lieutenant John D. Bulkeley:
Description: This 1942 poster's text reads, Ouch! The Japs don't like mosquitoesespecially the PT variety, with men like Lieutenant Bulkeley at the wheel and a picked crew shooting stingers into the sides of their warships and merchantmen. If you like to be where the attack starts there's a place for you right in the U.S. Navy. Go to your nearest Navy Recruiting Station today! The poster includes photographs of Lt. Bulkeley and a PT Boat. The latter, shown flying a Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron TWO flag at its masthead, is probably PT-18 (an ELCO 70-foot type), photographed in 1941.
