Vol. 9 No. 11, November 2013

Posted this month are some photo scans from a short stack that's been piling up on my desk for a while, now, including a couple of nice crew photos from SC 309, one of the two chasers that served in Alaskan waters, and another addition to the Hull Numbers Collection.

We're slowly closing in on 60% of chaser hulls shown -- although I think the meter has been stuck on 58% for most of a year, now, so 100% might be a long way off! I suppose that makes it a more interesting pursuit.

November 11 is coming up soon, and I'll be thinking of the chasers in 1918 on the Otranto Barrage, at Plymouth, and at various other ports overseas, celebrating the Armistice.

SC 96 Added to the Hull Numbers Collection

Submarine chasers SC 96 and SC 338

Speaking of the Otranto Barrage, just posted is a photo scan showing submarine chaser SC 96 (alongside SC 338), in this image celebrating not the Armistice, but the fourth of July, 1919, as chasers were stationed along the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea participating in post-war duties.
