I recently acquired a scrap book, with almost 100 pages, that appears to have been kept by one of the original range masters at Mt. Pleasant Naval Gun Range in 1918. It is full of history and names and wondered if it would be of any interest to anyone there. Please send me any questions and I will look them up. Thank you, Mike- Caloopin@yahoo.com
