I will be assisting with a 2 day event at the Battleship North Carolina on Friday June 21 & Saturday June 22. My 1943 US Army Jeep will be on display as visitors board the ship and I will be greeting visitors along with Levy Pate, Ray Sheppard & Randolph Sawyer.
Working on WWII US Army BD-71 switchboard. I am attempting to connect multiple “old-school” telephone land lines/field phone to the switchboard. The working display will be demonstrated at the upcoming STEAM event at Bladen Community College on Wednesday March 27.
The switchboard is vintage WWII and I have displayed it at Fort Fisher in an non-working state for a couple of years. My biggest issue is getting the WWII field phones operating!
I will be speaking on WWII Camp Davis and discussing my new publication, “Camp Davis: a 21st Century History & Guidebook” at Bladen Community College on Tuesday March 19 at 6:00 PM. At the conclusion of my short talk and question-answer segment, I will sign your book! Books will be available for purchase at the event. Special thanks to the BCC Library staff for hosting this event!
