    First time for me too.I remember reading about German spies coming in on the East Coast but I thought it was only a small group. For some reason I also thought that group were put in front of a firing squad.

    I don't think George Dasch was ever fully on board with the whole operation. Trying to bribe the coastguard sentry on Long Island and then letting him go makes it seem that he wanted to be caught to me.

    The sinking of the Ingraham is only part of the story. Please go to this site for additional info:

    Convoy AT-20: USS Ingraham DD-444 sinks; Buck DD-420, oiler USS Chemung damaged. SS Awatea disappears. August 22, 1942 off Halifax. In separate later actions destroyers Buck and Bristol, and transport Awatea were sunk by U-boats.

    During my arm-chair research on my Uncle Les, who sailed in the convoy that the Ingraham was escorting, when sunk, I came across the following info:
    The American convoy with escorts (AT-20) sailed from New York where it is was joined by Canadian troopships (NA-15) in Halifax. The capital ships that were protecting this convoy, primarily troopships (US to Ireland, Cdn to UK), were the battleship USS New York and the cruiser USS Philadelphia.
    The troopship Awatea would collide with the destroyer USS Buck and have to return to Halifax for repairs. One month later it would sail out of Halifax with Convoy (NA-16) and join up with the Yanks again for protection. My father would be on this convoy, bound for Liverpool on the troopship Stirling Castle.
    I have attached a few pages from the war diary of the 25th Cdn Armd Regt who were onboard the Awatea and rendered aid to the ship.
    Also the makeup of NA-15 (2 docs). These documents are from Library Archives Canada.
    The Awatea would be sunk off of North Africa at a later date.

    Thank you for the information. Amazing how a small blurb of news 77 years old was read by someone who was related to someone connected to that terrible accident.

    There is an interesting small article about Britain "Clearing for Action" on the 20th of September.

    The Wakefield is the ship that either took my dad to Europe or brought him home. I can't remember which. It was moored in 'The Mothball Fleet' in Tomkins Cove on the Hudson River in NY for many years after the war. It was near where we lived and dad took us over to see her several times.

    I have said this before in other post but I continue to enjoy the quality of maps that were being given in the newspapers in the States. I have been reading "Waffen-SS Hitler's Army at War" by Adrian Gilbert and it has been interesting comparing history/maps at the moment versus 2019.

    I guess not all of the news was correctly reported?? Could there still be concerns almost a year later regarding the true devastation on the attack at Pearl Harbor?

    I was thinking that too. Back when reporters were concerned about the country.

    Different times indeed!. I went on the site for Pearl Harbor and they listed that at the time of attack there were 100 commissioned and auxiliary ships. From that 16 were heavily/ damaged sunk. Also found an interesting Blog from the U.S. Naval Institute connected to Battleship Row and December 7th.
