Ens. Archibald D. McKeige, USNRF, served as CO of submarine chaser SC 99, unit leader of Unit 10 (SC 99, SC 260, SC 322) stationed in Plymouth, England (Base 27). XO: Btsn. Carl Aldot Peterson, USNRF
This set of crew photos from SC 99 is from the collection of Ens. McKeige.
SC 99 is one of the chasers inolved in the "suicide incident," in which after a submarine pursuit reports developed of hearing noises that sounded like gunshots under water, and later reports suggested that it could have been German submariners commiting suicide rather than succumbing to suffocation or drowning. There was no official credit awarded for sinking a sub.
Thanks to Bruce McKeige, son of Ens. McKeige, for lending the photo album to The Subchaser Archives for scanning.
