The Final Preparations

The lid of the coffin was removed and DSCM(SW) Dan McArdle invited forth anyone who had brought DS related memorabilia or mementos. Each one described the item they had brought, before placing it in the coffin. Mementos included a student guide for the Comtran 10, a Mare Island welcome aboard package, a CSTSC ball cap, DS rating badges, 'A' school curriculum, pictures of Mare Island, Vallejo maps, prints, rep cards and a circuit card for the CP/642B.

DSC(SW) Ken Spencer, who built the coffin, then securely sealed the cover in place.
