Dear friends of the Collet, I order them these photos----two years ago in an Internet auction, I found a publication that was selling an electronic equipment of the darling Destructor Piedra Buena, helped by two friends of White Bay, they corroborated, (specially the camada of operations) that really was of the ship, was like that that buys it and after this time decidi to turn it into the beautiful one (at least for my), lamp that was occupying a place between our affections.... Good fulfilled mission it was not uselessly the purchase. I want to share it
