  • THE SIGNALMAN WOULD HOIST THE FOX FLAG, AS WE WERE ABOUT TO ENGAGE THE ENEMY. THE DESTROYER ESCORTS WOULD BE ALERTED THAT OUR SHIP WOULD BE TURNING INTO THE WIND TO LAUNCH OUR AIRCRAFT. OUR TASK GROUP WOULD DEPLOY THEIR FORCES AND THE DESTROYER ESCORTS WOULD CONVERGE ON THE U-BOAT AND DROP DEPTH CHARGES. THE "MIGHTY MIDGET", USS BOGUE WOULD NOW BE TRANSFORMED FROM A SHIP OF MANY DUTIES TO A UNIQUE WARSHIP, CAPABLE OF DAMAGING AND SINKING THE ENEMY'S U-BOATS AND SURFACE VESSELS. OUR PLANES WERE USED FOR RECONNAISSANCE RANGING MANY MILES IN ORDER TO SIGHT AND THEN BOMB ANY VISIBLE SUBMARINES THAT MAY HAVE INTRUDED INTO OUR WATERS.

A Sailor's Dream

When darkness bursts into streaks of light,
And rain pours down through the dismal night,
And thunder rolls 'cross the midnight sky,
Only then, will I bid you goodbye.


Goodbye to the land and its boring chores,
Goodbye to the mates that clutter its shores,
Then I'll head my ship, mast and sail,
Into the teeth of the shrieking gale.

A Sailor's dream is to feel the sway,
As the wind unwinds and casts its spray.
A Sailor's dream is to challenge the sea,
To trace his course through his sorcery.

A Sailor's dream is to follow the stars,
And spin his yarns as he visits the bars.
He will whistle a tune, and render a rime,
Slip off to his ship before it is time.
