    USS Jacob Jones DD-130 was struck by two torpedoes fired by U-578 off the east coast of the US. It broke into three pieces. There were only about 15 survivors recovered after an extensive search.

    Slipdigit Old Hickory Recon

    USS Stewart DD 224 was scuttled by its US crew. She had been damaged after moving into drydock, when she fell off of the blocks as the dock rose and damaged beyond economical repair by the beleaguered forces at Surabaya. Ultimately, she was raised by the Japanese, who used her as a patrol craft. She was subsequently returned to US control at Kure at the cessation of hostilities. As she had been stricken from the Naval Register and there was already another USS Stewart launched as a replacement, she was simply called DD-224. Her engines carried her only as far as Guam and she was towed to San Francisco, where she was scuttled in 1946 as an aircraft target.

    I have always enjoyed reading and collecting old maps. For me as I post these snippets of newspapers I really have enjoyed the maps that were saved. I guess I am pretty surprised on how much detail they were showing to the public at the time.

    Like you I am surprised at how good the maps are. Better than in some post war books.

    I am assuming that the next report refers to the St Nazaire Raid and the HMS Campbeltown. I also was surprised on a following report that had a title referring to "Australian Air War". I have not heard of that description before

    Article that is obviously connected to the Doolittle Raid. The last Raider, Lt. Col. Richard "Dick" Cole recently passed away on 4/9/42 at the age of 103.

    I would give most anything to put my hands on this and look at it. Are you anywhere near Alabama?
