Hey, how 'bout more info on the DUKWs? You guys have gotten me *awfully* curious!
I have a very vague memory of my father's explanation of the acronym, and description of the vessel, but I can't remember enough. Some WWII military craft, right? A landing boat of some kind -- amphibious, maybe?
What about their post-war civilian use in Boston; you allude to that, but don't describe it to those of us not in the know. What sun awnings?
