Fresno Sailor Is Cited For Heroism At Sea

A young former Fresnan who is a member of a navy patrol bomber crew has been cited for meritorious service for his part in the rescue of seven merchant seamen from a life raft in the Caribbean Sea.

He is Robert M. Pannett, 25, who was in a patrol bomber which Spotted a tiny raft tossing on the crest of a stormy sea June 7th. Lieutenant Hugh S. Rogers of Miami, the plane commander, and Ensign Rance A. Thompson of Norton, VA., the first pilot, decided to attempt a rescue despite the great risk.

Fred W. Parker, an International News Service correspondent riding in the plane, described the landing as follows:

"The hull of the plane groaned as the rough seas ground over its keel. Waves washed over the wings. All of us aboard knew the peril in setting this giant plane in the turbulent waves. As we roared in we took such a beating that I momentarily lost consciousness."

The dangerous work of taking the seamen aboard required forty five minutes, and the big plane then bucked the huge seas in a risky takeoff.

Four of the rescued men were members of the gun crew aboard the merchant vessel, sunk seven days before.

Other members of the plane's crew who were commended for meritorious Service were Richard L. Delaney, 25, of Buffalo; Claude L. Moore, 22, Brownville, Neb; William E. Ward, 19, Fremont, Ohio, and Harry P. Hansley, 19, Marion, N.C.
