English Translation of French Typescript

Newsletter article image

In 1917-1918, France purchased two sets of fifty 110' submarine chasers from the U.S. In a French-language typescript, La traversée de l’ Atlantique par les Chasseurs de Sous Marins contruits en Amérique, the story of these chasers crossing the ocean is presented.

Marc Terraillon has graciously agreed to translate into English, over time, sections of this typescript. I'm taking on the role of English language copy editor for the translation, and as I work through the pages I will post them to the section, The Crossing of the Atlantic Ocean...

Posted so far are the introduction section and a short piece of the first chapter, and the first Appendix, which contains a list of the chaser hull numbers and the U.S. and French hull numbers.
