This collection was started by Albert Lammas RN, and was taken over and expanded after his death by his
brother Edwin T. Lammas RMA. The photos are shown with the captions as added by Edwin when he put the
album together (unless a caption was not provided). They have been rearranged by general subject and
are not in chronological order. This album represents not only the vessels Edwin served on, but many places
that were visited during his service. It gives a good look into the past and shows the many diverse cultures
and places a sailor may visit during service to his country.

Great appreciation must be given to David M. Butland, Edwin's grandson, for allowing MaritimeQuest to
display this collection. Further appreciation goes to Philip J. Heydon ISM for his efforts scanning and
cataloging the collection.
