Bugatti Patrol, Yellow Sea
In 1951, while in TE-95.11 (a small CVE and DD task element) in the
Yellow Sea, at nightfall one of the DD's would go north of the straits
between China and Korea on the "Bugatti Patrol", and return at dawn.
Figuring 12 hours (6 hours up and 6 hours back) at 18 to 20 knots could
be 120 to 150 miles; very near Port Arthur. Does anyone know what or
where the phrase "Bugatti Patrol" came from, and what it meant?
