First is a batch of photos with unknown BuNos. These all come from various cruisebooks og tourbooks that I accessed through the VP-28 site, http://www.patron28.org.  These are all scanned from printed material and often of small size, thus quality will be very variable, but these are so important to the VP-28 story, that I feel fully justified in including them here.
