In between articles.....which keeps me fairly busy...I attempt to compose some Merchant ship histories and incidents. Of the Merchants I lean toward Liberty ships...but I still have a strong interest in all Merchants.

Well here is one Liberty ship that I believe had an interesting incident....she was the SS ADONIRAN JUDSON.....so here is how I compose these 'gathering of words' to give the reader a look into what these ships and crews went through on the Merchants in WW II

The link to my history of the above liberty can be read HERE

I have many more of these histories that I'll be posting.....hope they are some value to others in some small way.

Enjoy

Thank you again......for sharing that piece of info...I for one appreciate it.

SS Adoniram Judson-October 25, 1944-1.jpg

These pictures are of the hole in the wharf made by a near miss bomb dropped from a Japanese Zero aircraft October 25, 1944 around 1300 local.

Captain Jarvis on the left and four squatting US Marines all peer into the hole. You want an Adoniram Judson picture? There she is moored at a Tacloban wharf.

Captain Jarvis alone with the hole.
