Looking for information regarding SC 702 for my brother-in-law, Marion Edward Gruber, who served on her in WWII. He also served on the USS Whitehurst during Korean War.

My granfather was on the sc-1282 from 1943-1944. The ship was decommisioned and then used as a personal yacht. He was over in the Atlantic and the Gulf. If anybody has any info I would really appreciate it. Or where I can get more info about that ship would be a great help. I was trying to suprise him so I can’t ask him to much more. Thank-you so much!

My Father-in-law Robert Hoagland served on the SC650 during 1944 or portion of 1945? Looking for info about ship or mates.

I am looking for a list of all who were on USS SC 669. My Dad was on this ship and we are interested in knowing whereabouts of fellow shipmates. My Dads name is Sterling Short.I am told A K-Sub was sank by this crew in 1943 or 44. Is this correct?? Thanks for any info. Brad Short

Spent over a year on SC730 in the New Hebrides. I was the radio operator. Most of the time we patroled the straits between Tulagi and Guadacanal, 24 hours a day, going between two buoys about a mile apart. This duty was about as boring as anyone could imagine. Ocasionally there would be a break in this routine and we would escort libery ships to the Russell Islands. We were hungry and dirty most of the time, but in retrospect it was fun. There were many humorous incidents.
Does anyone know where I can obtain a list of the personel on this SC? The captain’s name was Robert Mcllvaine, a lieutenant commander. The gunnery officer’s last name was “Potts”.

Regarding crew members SC 760 42-45. New E-Mail address is: . Thanks, J. Hart

Glenn Steimer I have tryed to contact you with the E- Mail address you left on this web site the mail is always returned. Please contact me I was on the SC1010 when it was rammed by a freighter in the channel off the Calif.coast

Still trying to find anyone that was in the original crew of the U.S.S. S.C. 1010.

Does anyone know what happened to the SC1372 after March 1947 and does anyone know any of the crew.

Looking for information about SC 701 in the Pacific.

Thank You.

Would appreciate any information about a SC that was converted to a commercial FV named Phylis J. Operated in N.Y. area. Owned by a Jacob or Jacobs family. Thank You.

My father, Claude S. Farmer, LT (DV-E), USNR, commissioned SC-518 at Elizabeth City, NC, the day before I was born. He served as the CO for several months on convoys between Trinidad, BWI, and Noth Africa. On one trip, the turn around time and/or food supplies so short, the crew was not able to restock food. For the last few days of the voyage, he told me, the entire crew was reduced to eating formerly dried lima beans, He wouldn’t touch another lima bean afterwards.

I represent a small group of part-time underwater archeologists that is interested in any and all info. on the WWI SC 60 that sank after collision in Oct. 1918 off the NJ coast we are interested in it for a future documentary project. Ken Harber member Sergis Expeditions

The Julius Peterson Boat Yard in Upper Nyack is being purchased by the town of Clarkstown to preserve it for future generations. We want to gather information about some of the work that was done there during the Second World War.

I am trying to gather information about the Submarine Chasers that were built there during WWII. If anyone has information about the following boats - SC-652, SC-653, SC-738, SC-739, SC-740, SC-1316, SC-1317, SC-1319, and SC-1320, please let me know. I know when each boat was launched, christened, etc.. But, information from crew members would be very helpful.

If you served on any of those 10 boats, and have memories that you would like to share - you can also send them hard copy to me at 202 Radcliff Drive, Upper Nyack, NY 10960.

Great site by the way.

I’m researching the post-2nd war histories of Canada’s 80 Fairmile B naval motor launches. The U.S.N. had several of the same type.
Are any of you aware of any ex-RCN Fairmiles, sold into the U.S. in 1945-1947 for civilian use? As yachts or commercial craft?
2 New York firms bought 12 of them - now out of business - Acme Boat & Salvage, and Consolidated Shipbuilding Corp.
Recently sold on E-bay was Maryland’s Maryland Indpendence - ex-RCN’s Q-120!
Any leads would help.

My father Bill Beasley attended SCTC in Miami from Oct.26,1943 til December 1943. If anyone remembers him or served with him during this time please contact me. I have a photo of my dad and sailors at the “Frolic Club” in Miami. My dad was transferred to a Destroyer Escort the USS CONKLIN DE 439 after his training in Miami.

LOOKING FOR INFORMATION REGARDING A JOHN HENRY FABRIS WHO SERVED ON WOODEN SUBCHASER DURING THE BATTLE OF ANZIO IN WWII AS A MACHINIST. WAS MENTIONED IN APPENDICIES OF A BOOK CALLED THE SPLINTERED FLEET ( I THOUGHT THE AUTHOR
S NAME OF MULLHOLLAND) NOT TREADWELL. WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE AN INFORMATION. THANK YOU

My father served in World War between 1944 and 1946. His name was Frank Zabriskie Jr. His
discharge papers show he was on the U.S.S. SC-663. My father passed away in 1980. I always knew
he served in the Navy, was a gunner on a sub chaser. He didn’t like to talk about it much. I never
really understood why, until recently. I found out a few months ago that the sub chaser my father was
on was hit and sank. I don’t know how many sailors were on the ship, but I was told my father was
one of few who survived after bobbing in the ocean for days. I haven’t found any information to
support what I have been told. It makes me smile alittle, because, if true, I can now understand
why he didn’t like the water. Come to think of it, he had a built-in pool put in our backyard and the
ten plus years we lived there, I never once saw him go in. Regardless of whether this is true or not,
I will always be proud of my father and the many men and women who unselfishly served our country.
If anyone knows anything about the history of U.S.S. SC-663, I would love to hear from them.

Please visit my website that I put together in honor of the SC536...."Mitey 536"

Is there anyone left from crew of the SC 633, Nosebleed Three. What were the numbers of other five SC’s that were converted to high speed shallow water mine sweepers for the
invasion - they were only all together once and that was in Leyete Gulf as the war happily ended. SC 633 - Capt. Emerson, 2nd Officer Tamsky or Tamasky were both Ens. or JG’s when the ship was basically stripped by the August typhoon off Japan.

I served on SC-1352 from time of commissioning in June 1942 until she was de-commissioned in December 1945. I went aboard as a Coxs’un and left as a BM1. During my time aboard her we did a lot of patroling in the Atlantic and escorted ships from Cuba and the Bahamas to New York.
We participated in the invasion of Normandy on D-Day and staying in the area for two months.I am now 80 years old and have never heard from anyone who served on her.

Is there anyone out there who knows someone who served on the SC 641 in so. west pacific?

My father served on SC 1034. Does anyone know him? His name was Thurman C. Brown. He was on the 1034 from June to ?

Any one who knows anything, please help.

Thanks

I am the oldest son of John E. Connelly from Brighton, Mass.
I believe he served on the SC536.
My father died in 1972.
Any info about my dad would be greatly appreciated.

Just a note on Father’s Day to thank all the Subchaser sailors, on behalf of their sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons, for their service to our nation in its most dire time of need.
Thanks too, to Mr. Treadwell personally, for without his efforts here, I would never have been able to contact and/or learn about two of my late Dad’s fellow officers on the SC 1326 -- Mr. Emile Cancienne, and Mr. C.D. Stremsterfer. Would love to hear from more 1326 crewmen!

My father attended SCTC between March 1943 and May 1943. Does anyone remember him? His name was Turman C. Brown from Illinois. I am asking because his Abstract of Service record shows him leaving SCTC May 7, 1943 and arriving Pugit Sound August 30th 1944 ?? I do not think the Navy would give him a 15 month leave. Does anyone remember him? Can you tell me if you served with him. Any information is really appriciated.

Tom Brown -

Did anyone attend SCTC in Miami between March 1943 and May 1943? I am reserching my fathers service record and what little I have shows he attended SCTC between these dates.

Do any of you remember a Thurman C. Brown?

Any information, any at all would sure help me.

Thanks and bless you all.

Tom Brown

My article “ Lost With All Hands/ The Story of USS SC-1024 ” has just been posted on the NAVSOURCE [ Photo Archive Main Index] web site. Enter the Patrol Vessels section and look for SC Submarine Chasers [110'].

WOW is the words that come to mind. A really great site. The PaperLabs card model is very good and is really easy for someone to make (no painting) and being small (14cm) can fit on any desk or in any den. The site is a fitting tribute to those young men that served to keep us ALL free in those dark days of total war.

I have been very interested in obtaining information regarding my Grand-Father and his naval career. His name was Jules Warshaw. I know that he served in both WWI and WWII. He served on the SC 697 from 8/31/42 - 10/6/44. He was discharged as an EM1c. I am interested in hearing from anyone that either served with him and/or knows anything about the ship that he was on. I look forward in hearing from someone.

I’m researching the USS SC978 during the invasion of southern France. Specifically the dates of August 25 through October 26, 1944. I am looking for any of her crew. I also need to identify any units that sailed with the SC978 during that specific time frame. I’m trying to identify the order of battle for TF80, specifically CTU80.10.4. If you can help please contact me. This research will hopefully result in the crew of the SC978 receiving the acknowledgement of an action they were involved in at that time. What they did was only a grain of sand on the beach of WWII, but, its that crew’s grain of sand. I hope their fellow sailors and shipmates can help. Thank you for any assistance. From a former sailor, and son of an SC crewman.

Correction to my last transmission. Tom Sankowski’s inquiry for information concerning his uncle Tony and his service on the 1029 resulted in a great telephone conversation. I was able to provide him with a great deal of information about his uncle’s time on the ship and the circumstances which lead to his death during the Southern France landings.

I have read through all of the guestbook entries from 1999--2003, looking for anyone who even mentions the SC-1029, but I find nothing. I must be “the last man standing”. Surely there is someone out there who remembers her. I was a YN1 when she was turned over to the French in October 1944. Would be pleased to hear from anyone who knew me or the ship.

I am looking for any information on a naval ship my father was on in 1942?43?44? or so. The ship is the USS LST 553. His name is Grafton Curt Sylvester knoiwn as Curt.

I’m looking for anyone who served aboard a Subchsaser used as a Dispatch Vessel on the invasion of Guam. I was aboard the SC1326 at Agat Bay. We were the nearest to the cliffs to the north and was hit by shore fire. I was the Exec of the SC1326 with Howie Wheelock as CO. It would be great to hear from a subchaser sailor who was at Agat Bay that day - especially if we was on my ship.

I am looking for those who served on the SC 1039 in 1942. My fater inlaw,SAM F.EMMA, was serving then and i am compiling as much info as i can into a portfolio which i hope to send him soon. He does not own a computer to enjoy the places i’ve found relating to subchasers etc: He also was aboard the CVE 72 USS Tulagi,escort carrier, when we invaded France in 1944. I’d appreciate any feedback. Thank you! Dave Giessen

First time emailer! Great site . I as the rest of you am looking for info. on mydad. James W. Eicher,he served on the comissioned ship SC705 around 1943. I know he was up in Greenland. He says his mission must have been classified, because to the best of his knowledge they sank a sub off of the Atlantic coast. Although they were never told if it was afriend or foe!!! Please contact me with what you know.

I served aboard the SC-737 in the South Pacific from 1943 to 1946. My rate was Radarman 2/c. I went aboard at Statin Island, NY, then to Sub Chaser Training School at Miami, Fla. then over to the Pacific, working our way up the New Guinea coast and finally into the Phillipines. Is there anyone around who served on the SC-737? If so please contact me. I really enjoy this web site

My Dad, Herbert Brown Halley, was a Yeoman aboard the SC1031. He was part of the invasion of the Marshall Islands. He spoke of travels from Kwajelin Atoll to Eniwetok and back to Roi Namur as well as Palmyra Island, Johnson Island, and Midway. Dad passed away in Feb. 2004. If anyone has any information or stories with regards to the SC1031, or would like to receive my Dad’s brief account please email me ().

I am trying to gather any information about my grandfather Edwin Mignard. He served on subchaser 216 during WW1 as a member of the “black gang” and later as bosun’s mate. One of my life’s treasures is his bosun’s pipe with the lanyard made from a strip of black cloth. Any information would be appreciated by both my Dad and myself. Thanks

I was assigned to wear a uniform or costume for 1945 for my 5th grade class. I have a hat and some clothes my dad wore at the Naval Academy. I have to choose an occupation and decided to be a skipper for a Subchaser, and I chose SC669 because it was the only subchaser to sink a Japanese sub. I think the photos and stories are really cool!

I am writing this for my father who served on the SC 536 and SC 1018. I have the names of the crew and addresses as of 19 Sept 1945 of the crew of the SC 536.

MY DAD STEPHEN C. ATWOOD WAS ABOARD THE SC#772 1941-45 SO. PACIFIC, ANY OLD FREINDS? YES THEY PICKED UP DOWN PILOTS AND SAILERS

Your website is fantastic

My dad “Don” was signalman on SC-734 from shakedown until early 1945? This ship was built on the west coast in 1942. Saw duty from Leyte Gulf to Australia. Dad passed away in 1964, but I would enjoy hearing from shipmates, or their relations.

My father, Charles E. Terry, Sr., GM2c, served on the USS SC1328 in 1943-44. He subsequently was re-assigned to destroyer duty and new construction ( USS Myles C. Fox )at the Boston Naval Yard. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who knew him or who served in either of these ships.

To Norris Grady Jamison (Grady ) I was on SC 1011 precommissioning and crew of USS SC 1011, built at Fellows and Stewart Shipyard - Terminal Island. Buried at sea near Channel Islands. Seaman was trapped in an Sub Chaser when rammed by a Panamanian Merchant Man. Buria; at sea was accompanied by Chief from the rammed ship. I’m certain I knew a feew of the Momm’s on that SC 1011/

Seeking information on personnel attached to the USS SC-1024 which was sunk on March 2, 1943. The data is needed for a pending article on the subchaser.Thank you.

I was assigned in Subchaser # 677 When she was in Panama March, 1943. We were replacing a cylinder in one of the engines. If there is anyone out that has any information on Her or a photo Please contact me on this e-mail address.

Thanks
