Merle Summers, MM1, WW2
The following account of Merle's service aboard the Beale was written by E. J. Bartholomew in what I believe is Mr. Bartholomew's newspaper or perhaps magazine column, "The Disturbed Philosopher". A copy of Mr. Bartholomew's article was published in the 1987 issue of The Beale Bugle. It is reprinted in its entirety. You can click on the article to magnify the content.
