Tunisien ex-USS Crosley DE 108

HMS TUNISIEN F 706
ex-USS CROSLEY DE 108

Old french sailor of D.E. (ex USS CROSLEY DE 108) is very happy to send you a photography of his ship.  On this boat I began my seaman life and I spent several months and I enjoyed it
very much (1956 - Algerian war).  That is the reason why I am very happy to contact other sailors as was myself.  I have appreciated your web site.
Best regards,
Guy Mignotte
