I have attached a photo of Collett's OPs Dept leadership after we won the "E"in 1968.

I have identified some of the crew

Bridge wing Curtis Cook (CIC) Andy Bradick (OPS), PO1?, Chief?

01 level Chief ?, RM1 Zimmerman, Ens. ?, Ens C. Chadbourne, Ltjg P. Johnson, SM1?

It would be great if one of our shipmates could ID the rest.

All the best,

Andy (OPS 66-68)
