Bullhead (SS 332)
Departing Fremantle for her third war patrol, Bullhead (Lieutenant Commander E.R. Holt, Jr.) on 31 July 1945, started for her area (from 110°-00’E to 115°-30’E, in the Java Sea). She was to leave her patrol area at dark on 5 September and head for Subic Bay, Philippine Islands. Capitaine and Puffer were also to patrol in the Java Sea area, as were the British submarines Taciturn and Thorough.
Bullhead arrived in area on 6 August, but Capitaine did not arrive until 13 August. On 12 August, Capitaine ordered Bullhead to take position the following day in a scouting line with Capitaine and Puffer.

I really like this post I wrote a few months ago…
Rosh had used Rolled eyes in a comment.
I really like that expression Rosh had used in a comment.

I know Idala’s granddaughter isn’t the one to roll her eyes when she reads my blog.
I hope her grandchildren will open them wide one day.

I have some famous people and I am proud to write about them on this blog paying homage to our ancestors…
I would have been the first one to write about my 8th cousin Emeril Lagasse if I had heard about him before Tammy Middleton had not jumped the gun with my search for Emeril’s roots.
So how am I related to Emeril, and why am I writing about him today?
It’s because of this man…
I don’t know if Emeril Lagasse is famous enough to have people stalking him.
I know I have never been in such a predicament even though I have been writing about our ancestors since 2009. I figured cooking is more important than genealogy unless you stumble on this blog and start to get all excited about old pictures you once thought putting in the garbage…
So what about Emeril Lagasse and how are you related to him? You will have to come back later because I am busy as a bee right now…

My interest is renewed – I do have relatives somewhere!
Yes, as per your blog, I am alive :):) and would love to know more.
That was four years ago when Alyce got all excited about her ancestors. Her ancestors are all here on this blog.
Alyce shared almost all she knew. At first there was little to go on…
I just love pictures.
