In Deadly Shores after the loss of most of the squadron and the loss of Winny Rominger when USS Respite Island is sunk Lt. Cmdr. Irwin Laumer takes command of the seven surviving PTs. Laumer commands PT-7 with Ensign Nathaniel Hardee as his XO. The PTs along with USS Walker torpedo Grik Battleships and Cruisers in the opening phase of the First Battle of Grik City. Laumer brings reinforsements to the beached Walker and transports the party to kill or capture the Celestial Mother, leaving Ensign Hardee in command of PT-7. Laumer joined the party taking command, but was killed in the throne room.
