Old Cutter Alert - Mysteries & Unknowns
As with any old historic place, building or ship, the Alert has her share of unanswered questions and curiosities. Here we will list some of these in the hopes that someone will be able to shed some light on them. If you have any information or stories of the Alert you want to share please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Japanese sub sinking
We have heard a story to the effect that the old Alert was involved in the sinking of a Japanese submarine off the California Coast early(?) in World War II. Can anyone help with this one?
2. Graffiti found under Officers Country
The following graffiti was found on a beam in the starboard stores under the officers staterooms:
"Beaver EM2 68"
"Dobson EN3 '66 '67 '68"
"Snyder DR 65"
"Vallad EN3 6-67"
If anyone knows who any of these people (crew members?) were. Let us know at email@example.com
While cleaning up a dark and forgotten corner of the ship, Walt James came across an old leather tool pouch marked R.W. Mandell
We've got it stowed away in the slop-chest.
R.W., if you want you tool pouch back... Give us a call!
