On offer is an interesting group of original World War II era journals and log books [6] related to a small and often overlooked or underrated part of the United States Navy being Sub Chasers, an invaluable group that served to eliminate Germany's U boat threat. Sub chasers were quickly built, usually from wood, usually in small boatyards and launched in great haste at the outset of World War II as German U boats were roaming the Atlantic at will, unopposed, sinking merchant vessels with complete abandon with no regard for neutrality. By the end of WWII over 400 had been built. Their usual duty was escorting convoys and patrolling harbors the sub chasers were also used in other ways. The six books breakdown as follows: Book 1: a few pages with the addresses of Skippers, from WWII and their home addresses in later years. 10 men are listed. Book 2: Title B has just a couple of pages of info. Book 3: A.R.B. #25 Daily Log, from Sept 18, 1944 through Nov 24, 1944. Book 4: A couple of pages from April 1946. Book 5: Log C 18351 from Sept 29, 1945 to April 1946. Book 6: Log of the motor vessel Quest (not the Shackleton Quest) for 1946 - 1947 with a few indexed pages of info and some tech notes. Books 1 - 5 are 5 x 8 inches. Book 6 is a folio sized book. Overall G+
