    They were built in three different yards but primarily at the George Lawley & Son (Neponset, Massachusetts).

    Dazed,

    You are correct.

    Turkey Fan, my research showed it's first use in combat was at Iwo. Was unaware of any use by Marines. Now if you are talking about the British version it was actually a different configuration. Same principle, different vessel.

    I was always intrigued by them as the majority were built in the old Lawley Ship Yard (now a private marina) at the beach I used to swim at as a boy in Dorchester Bay.
