ROUGHING IT Dramatic Story of Salvage Operation Told By Sergeant (Continued from Page One) .load the ship, which presented prob "One of the highlights of our lems, because we were working in first meal was a greeting by the very mucky salt mud.

The to our rescue and with the help; birds also ate more than their share, and from that time on they of an ax, a cold chisel and a driQj the ship was dismantled and within were our constant companions. "Saturday morning we began a few hours, near the break of building our raft, and this was dawn, the ship was loaded on the an operation in itself. We had not seen the ship and did not know semis and wreckers ready to cornel . what condition it was in. Our raft was a consolidation of two 16- barrel rafts joined together with with 14 feet between the two. We then erected an and fastened three five-to- n chain-fall- s as well as a five-to- n hand wench. It was quite a job to float the rafts out in the deep water, as the shoreline is very shallow for approximately one mile out. "Sunday morning our raft was completed and we proceeded to the place where the plane went down. Upon arriving we found that only about 1 feet of the plane projected above the water, and then our headache started. "We raised the right wing first, le under it. Howfastened a ever, this wasn't successful, as our first storm undid all our work. Let me say that they do have some real storms on the Great Salt lake, as we experienced several while we were out there. "Our next problem was to find a method by which to float the plane. Because of the depth of the surrounding mud, it was very hard to release the suction. The solution to the problem was to build two additional rafts and then take them to the wreckage by tug boat. After many weary hours of fighting the salt and the waves we finally got the right wing up again and lashed it to raft number one. Another storm, and next day we were lucky in getting the left wing up and lashed to raft number four-by-twelv- es, am gin-po- 16-bar- rel two. Lashed to Raft "We then lashed the front of the plane to our raft, and with the assistance of the tug boat took the main part of the . ship some 12 miles down the lake to our camp. There's where some more real work . came in. "Due to the shallowness of the water we were only able to bring the ship in within about a mile of the shore. The 2490th Truck company, and the 1718th Ordnance company had all their equipment there .including winch trucks and a large wrecker. "After breaking a number of heavy cables during some four days' work, we finally brought the ship within 100 yards of the shore. "It was an interesting sight to see some 100 soldiers and some completely unclothed, walking out in the Great Salt lake cable thrown across their with a shoulders. "The salvage crew went back to the scene of the wreckage and after fishing around for half a day, we were finally able to locate the tail of the ship, which was hard to get a grapple hook into. However, one of our men, affectionately known as the "Mad Roosian," was able to raise the tail section and loaded it onto one of our rafts. 'The next problem was to recover the nose, as the ship had broken into three sections, and the nose was some 12 feet deep in the mud. However, after some more grappling and fishing, we started pulling the nose section in. "From that time on it was just a case of and we pulled, in a number of pieces of ship that were lying about on the bottom of the lake. That completed the salvage operations, and after riding out another storm we proceeded back to camp. "Next we had to dissassemble and . back to Hill Field. "When we first arrived at the lake to make our camp. Major Catlin realized we were going to have to build a road of cross-tie- s (which formerly were used by the old S. P. railroad) from the mountain to the lake front, about 1000 yards. The road had to be hewn out of the rocks and was a life saver when it came time to take the wreckage from the lake front to the main road. "A major object of the entire salvage cooperation was to locate the body of the fifth member of the crew which was not found when the other bodies were recovered several weeks before. We searched over 250 miles of shoreline after we knew the body was not in the plane. A CAP pilot finally located the body from the air and we brought it into shore by motos boat "About six o'clock Saturday afternoon, June 5, we were back at Hill Field. "Now that the salvage operations are over, our mission is completed and we're all getting back in the groove, there were a number of amusing events that we'll always remember like the fond farewell from our friends, the Dive Bombers, who hated to see the last of their, army meals. "Some of the boys exploring the beach around the camp came across a bunch of ratlesnakes, and one of the boys, trying to be an east Indian snake charmer, was nipped. "I came' in one morning from four or five days orr the lake, and much to my consternation, found that the camp had had a flood after some five hours of rain, and the entire wash had gone through, the middle of my tent. My objective in .coming back was to get some fresh .clothes, because after wearing garments that have become saturated with the 25 per cent salt solution of the Great Salt lake, they can hardly be worn. Thej; were so full of salt they stood erect " . alone. "The experiences of our three week task brought about a feeling of teamwork, brought men and officers who lived under identical conditions closer and built up a companionship and good feeling that will be hard to beat." half-garbe- d, catch-as-catch-ca- n, " To Be Master Sergeant Fred To Be Sergeant Daniel J.
