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?


Graffiti found under Officers Country

The following graffiti was found on a beam in the starboard stores under the officers staterooms:

"King 67"
"Heinisch 68"
"Beaver EM2 68"
"RAB 66"
"Dobson EN3 '66 '67 '68"
"Cranston 64"
"Snyder DR 65"
"Dyet 1959"
"Ritter 66-67"
"Vallad EN3 6-67"
"Freyhof '68"
"Gable '68"
"Francis '68"

If anyone knows who any of these people (crew members?) were. Let us know at info@oldcutteralert.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!
