Vol. 3, No. 10, October 2007

October 2007: This month several more interesting photos are posted, including a rare photograph from the service of SC 209, a nice little pamphlet from the service of SC 83, and a photo of the triumphal arch at Gibraltar. For anyone who will be in southern Maine next month: On Tuesday, November 13, 2007 I will be speaking on the service of subchasers in WWI, at the Portland (Maine) Public Library. I'm not certain of the time yet -- I believe it will be at noon or 1:00 p.m. Check the Subchaser Archives home page closer to the date, and I'll post details.

Hasinger on SC 209October 2007: Submarine chaser service claimed the lives of many sailors: some fell victim to the flu epidemic, a few were swept overboard in storms at sea, and some were killed in engine room fires or other mishaps.

In the August issue a set of images and an audio podcast was presented, on the ill-fated service of submarine chaser SC 209, the sole case of chaser crewman fatalities from friendly fire.
