Harbor Defenses of Sitka, Alaska



LOCATION : Harbor Mountain








All photos on this page are from the Richard Pettinger Collection at the Isabel Miller Museum in Sitka, Alaska.  Richard Pettinger served in Sitka with the 691 Sig. A.W.  He arrived in 1942 and after a year.  There are 5 pages of his photos on this site.  I have scanned the captions that he wrote for his photos.
