Dear Sir, I have just tried to e-mail the British DSRTA member via the e-mail address on your web site. Unfortunately my e-mail was rejected as 'unknown address'. Do you have a current address for the British Deep Sea Rescue Tug Association? The reason I am trying to contact them is that I am planning an archaeological survey of the remains of the Mulberry Harbours and I know that many of the items were towed to France by the Deep Sea Tugs and I thought they may be interested. As the US tugs also played a large part in towing the Mulberry harbour items from Britain to Normandy it is possible that some of your members may also be interested. If so I would be delighted to hear from them. Many thanks Chris Howlett

The USS Reno was torpedoed during November 1944 and was towed to Ulithi for temporary repairs by The USS Zuni . The Reno was subsequently towed to Manus Island for dry docking and arrived there about December 23, 1944. Would like to know if anyone knows what fleet tug towed the Reno to Manus.

There were quite a few ATFs and ATAs and ATRs and ATOs in that part of the world when Reno needed a tow to Manus. You might do an internet search using the word MANUS,and/or ULITHI Rodger(RKDana "at" @ in place of "at", defeats spammers.

I was an RM3 on the USS Salinan form 1972 to the fall of 1974. While I was on the Salinan we made a North Atlantic Cruise where we towed a ship laying cable.(can't remember the name of the ship). The tow was a disaster, several men were injured and an officer committed suicide as a result. When we transfered the men to the cable layer the seas were rough and the Salinan broadsided the ship and opened a hole on the starboard side of the ship. Does anybody remember that cruise and if so do they remember the name of the officer who committed suicide?

Dear Sir: I stumbled upon your Spring 2010 Towline Newsletter while doing some research on my fathers service in the Navy during WWII. I delight to see the article about he USS Sonoma. My father, Wayne Bonar, was aboard the tug when it was hit by the Japanese aircraft. He was a machinist mate and was below decks at the time of the attack. He has told me the story of his escape through the ship's shafts to the upper decks and into the water. (By the way, he is alive and well and just turned 86 on June 10th) He went on to serve on the USS Don O Woods until the end of the war and was recalled during Korea and served aboard the USS Cross. We were surprised to see that the Sonoma was the first ship to be hit by a kamakazie as I have read that an Austrailian ship was the first. At any rate I will be printing the article to send to my dad in Michigan. Thank you !

I was stationed aboard the U.S.S. Hitchiti ATF 103 from Sept. 1959 to Dec. 1962. I went aboard as an ICFN right out of IC and MPO schools. I was discharged as an ICE5. I thought then and still do think it was the best possible duty in the Navy. As the only IC rate on board, there was nowhere else to look if something I was responsible for went wrong. I worked under the EM E6 and with the EM's most of the time, again, great training. During my time aboard, we made 2 WESPAC cruises, Hong Kong, Phillipines, Okinawa, Formosa (Taiwan), Panama, Mexico, and SAR duty in Alaska. In addition to towing targets for all kinds of ships and aircraft.

Back in 1943, there were 10-12 of us PO's transferred from the USS Bowditch to new construction on the East Coast. At least half of us were going ATF's. I wonder if any made it to NAFTS. One of them was a CM2/ who I last saw at the receiving station in Charleston SC. I remembered him telling me that everytime our old ship which was 10M tons hauled anchor he would get seasick and he wondered how he would make out on a fleet tug. Glad to see we are back on line
