New Photos from Joe Shannon by jameskrouse | Apr 20, 2015 | Crew, Partridge, Photos | 2 comments These were photos of the crew that Joe Shannon (Joe Nutt) provided a few years back. They cover from the Partridge in the Caribbean until after it’s sinking. 2 Comments Susan York on April 20, 2015 at 1:23 pm Thank you so much for posting these. I was excited to see a picture of Vernon Isom! My father, Robert Rassie York, was stationed on the Partridge and became close friends of the Isoms in California. It was always dad’s regret that Vernon requested the Partridge thinking that they would serve together. Dad always talked highly of the Partridge and her crew.

Don was a twin born in 1921, and my uncle on my mother’s side. His brother “Pep” lived a long life without him and we were able to at least enjoy and get to know Don through him. Both were excellent carpenters, and Donald a cartoonist, who I believe drew the ship’s logo/insignia. I wonder if the Donald Duck sketch in the newsletter was by him. Don’s youngest half sister Pat Baker lives in NJ today. I am proud to be named after Don. His Purple Heart hangs above my desk and I see it every day. His name, and I would believe those of his deceased mates, are listed in the American Chapel behind the altar in London’s great St. Paul’s Cathedral. Pep survived the War and so did his brother Joe who by chance was badly injured in a practice jump before the D-Day parachute assault.
