Cavalla (SS244) and/or Albacore (SS218) Veterans
« on: April 04, 2011, 01:18:01 PM »
Hello All,

I'm trying to find some contact info on particular subvets and hope one of you might have some leads for me.

1)  I'm looking for officers/crewmen that served on Cavalla's (SS244) 1st patrol.

2)  I'm looking for officers/crewmen that served on Albacore's (SS218) 9th patrol.  It is my understanding that Albacore was overdue, presumed lost during her 11th patrol...so I'm hoping some from the 9th patrol were transferred off the boat.

Any contact info, if available, is appreciated.

Thanks!

OK - I think I found some Cavalla contacts...but does anyone have any recommendations on where I can start for Albacore veterans?

Any help is appreciated.

No idea.  I'll do some poking around though.
