Just gets better and better friend.
Here's a new one that came on Monday.
History of USS COVINGTON
The German Liner Cincinnati took refuge in U.S. waters in 1914 when the hostilities began in Europe.
Cincinnati was renamed USS Covington and place in commision into the United States navy on July 26, 1917. The USS Covington was used as a troop ship.
The USS Covington was torpedo on July 1, 1918 from U-86. All escape except for 6. The next day they try to save her but failed.
An Arizona tally! Very impressive!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
I had the ARIZONA hat a few years ago from a yard sale
That's for the comments guys. I will post the other items under uniforms. The muster rolls will tell his story until 1942 and he was a very lucky man.
I should sent for his records.
