The COMPTEL experiment on GRO images 0.7-30 MeV celestial gamma-radiation that falls within its 1 steradian field of view. During the first eleven months of orbit, preliminary lozalizations from BATSE triggers indicated that about 1 in 6 cosmic events could have fallen within COMPTEL's field of view. WE present COMPTEL positions for four of the brighter of these gamma-ray bursts.
