N. Washington Lee Capps was born at Portsmouth, Virginia, on 31 Ianuary, 1864. Both he and his brother Talbot attended the U. S. Naval Academy, where W. L. Capps graduated in 1884. During the next two years he served on the U. S. S. Tennessee and on the staffs of Admirals Luce and Iouett. Be- cause of outstanding ability he was assigned to special duty abroad, studying at Glasgow University in Scotland, receiving his B. S. degree there in 1888. He was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science in 1912. In 1888 he became Assistant Naval Constructor and in 1895 was advanced to Naval Constructor. During the Spanish VVar he served on the staff of Admiral Dewey in the Asiatic Station, where he superintended the raising of several sunken Spanish ships. In 1903 he became Chief of Bureau of Construction and Repair, with the Rank of Rear Admiral. Later he was given permanent commission as Chief Constructor. Rear Admiral Washington Lee Capps was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by President Wilson during the First World War, "for exceptionally meritorious services in a position of great responsibilityf, In 1924 he was specially commended by the President for services on the Naval Compensation Board. Twice Admiral Capps served in San Francisco, where the ship named in his honor was built and commissioned. From 1896 to 1898 he superintended the construction of the Union Iron Works. In 1915 he was the delegate of the Navy Department to the International Engineering Congress, serving as chairman of the section on Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. Admiral Capps was retired in 1928, but at the request of the Secretary of the Navy was kept on active duty. He continued as a member of the Navy Yard Commission, of the Naval VVar Claims Board until the day of his death, 31 May, 1935. .......:...v...- ......'--..--..- K .. f E , fa Q J P' f?

" t"mr'f1 1:52-Y 1st and 2nd DIVISION The ISt and 2nd Divisions, known as the deck force, were composed of the seamen, coxswains, and boatswain's mates. Gone are the days of sail when a seaman spent his entire time with his eyes on the sail and a line in his hand. Nevertheless, the need for good seamanship is just as acute today as it was 100 years ago. There are anchors to be handled, cargo booms to be rigged and manned, the boat boom to be swung out, the accommodation ladder to be lowered, boats to be hoisted, mooring lines to be tended and a host of other details that the layman is prone to forget. All of these require a thorough knowledge of seaman- ship in order that the various lines may be handled smartly and with a minimum of verbal commands. Occasionally such jobs must be done as fueling at sea or towing another ship. When performing tasks of this nature, the 11 The forctop lookout fi. 1 . ly SY' Q, Washing down the deck unexpected is almost certain to occur and it is then that a thorough knowledge of marlinespike seamanship is needed. Men's lives are frequently at stake during such maneuvers. Events call for rapid intelligent action leaving no room for the lackadaisical sailor who believes that marlinespike seamanship is a thing of the past. On the other hand, in contrast to these action filled moments, are days and weeks of nothing but painting, scraping, soogying, cleaning details, and miscellaneous unpleasant jobs too numerous to mention. All of this is necessary to a well maintained ship. Corrosion, the sailors greatest enemy, must be held to a minimum.

Cleaning too is necessary to a well run ship. Although dirt itself produces little material damage, the damage to the crew,s morale due to a dirty ship produces a far greater effect. Another job falling to the lot of the deck force was the load- ing and storing of supplies. Almost from the very minute they came aboard, the seamen "turned tow loading commissary stores, general stores, mail, and military cargo. This is a tiresome job ending only when a ship is decommissioned. In addition to the work about ship, the members of the deck force were required to stand watches as lookouts, messengers, helmsmen, and gun crews. Each of the above was just as im- portant and vital to the ship as the "day workn. Most important of all were the general quarters stations occupied by the deck force. It is they who manned most of the guns. The seamen loaded the guns while the coxswainas and boatswainls mates took their places as pointers, trainers and gun captains. It is evident that the seaman is the most versatile of all rates. This versatility required of the deck force did not lead to mediocre performance as might be expected. Whether Fighting off the enemy, mooring the ship or washing down the topsides, the deck force of the Admiral Capps always did the best possible job. 2 Scraping the deck before painting ,. 3rd DIVISION Although the Capps was not designed to be an attack ship, she carried sufficient ordnance to repulse enemy attacks by aircraft, submarine, or surface vessel. The main battery consisted of four 5",f38 caliber dual purpose guns, two guns being located atop the forward deck house and two aft- one on the fantail and one on the after deck house. Magazines for the main battery were located deep in the hull of the ship and almost directly beneath the guns they served. Ammunition necessary to feed these rapid Hre guns was hoisted from the magazines by electrically driven cage hoists. The fire control of the main battery was accomplished with the aid of three MK SI directors, two forward and one aft. The secondary battery consisted of four 1.1 f75 caliber quad- ruple mount heavy machine gunsr These guns were electric-hy- I i E Chief Connell at work in the armory ll! The after battery at 5 y 38" draulic driven and were controlled by individual MK SI gun directors. Two of the guns were located on the signal bridge and two on the boat deck aft. In addition sixteen 20 mm. light machine guns were located about the boat deck and superstructure decks. Gun watches of one sort or another were always stood on the Admiral Capps from commissioning to V-I day, the type of watch depending upon the proximity of enemy craft. Regular battle cruising conditions called for Watches to be stood on one 5" gun, one 1.1,!75 caliber gun, and Hve 20 mm. guns. VVhen the ship steamed through combat areas, a fire control watch was added consisting of one officer for the main battery, one chief petty Cliff? ti mate who ret Okinawa. all g Prose: T12 ., ,. respons1oiiiif.- of a twentf: conditions af task assigiitf the 1 VVCIS lslfliiwr to the cfgrifi The tire 3rd DIVISION AI.I,, Gun and crew petty oliicer for the light machine guns and one roving gunner's mate who repaired all small damages. During the invasion of Okinawa, all guns were constantly manned. Proper maintenance of the shipls ordnance was vital. This responsibility fell into the hands of the 3rd Division, composed of a gunnery officer, assistant gunnery officer and approximately twenty Hrecontrolmen and gunnerls mates. Adverse climatic conditions and frequent drills and battle practices increased the task assigned to the 3rd Division, but always, the maintenance of the guns was placed before personal comfort. That the guns were known to be ready for action at all times, no doubt added to the confidence of the crew and the embarked troops. The Hne records established during gunnery practices dem- onstrated the excellence of the ship's ordnance, her gun crews, and her ordnance division. The Capps was ready to meet and defeat the enemy at all times due to the effort and ability of the 3rd Division. A view of some of the 20 mm. gun tubs 4th DIVISION Aboard each of the larger Navy transports during the war was a detachment of Marines, consisting of one officer and 30 en- listed men. The Marine detachment fit into the ship's organiza- tion as the 4th Division. The 4th Division aboard the Admiral Capps was composed of men of every Marine division and even Marine Raider units. The previous experiences of these men varied from those just out of 'gboot camp" to the veterans of major Pacific engagements. The primary function of the 4th Division was to insure the security of the vessel, its crew, and its passengers. While in port this was done by assigning sentries to patrol both the vessel and the pier watching for accidents, sabotage, fire and in general main- taining law and order. l The cook :entry IXI The marine division az parade rest As soon as the ship left port, a thorough search was made to guard against the possibility of stowaways. If troops were aboard, a troop guard, composed of two guard companies totaling about 350 officers and men, was organized to enforce the ship's orders and prevent disturbances. Members of the troop guard were called upon for a great variety of things from stopping gambling games and racketeering to locating stolen property. Certain areas of the world called for special restrictive measures, such as, the siezing of cameras while passing through the Panama Canal. There were special tasks assigned to the 4th Division, such as, the guarding of all women passengers and the provision of a Marine orderly for the Commanding Officer.

This was brought about by the imprisonment of I2 Mereha nt Marine sailors, who refused to work, while enroute from Yokohama to San Francisco. Besides standing their continual security watches, the 4th Division maintained a regular schedule of training. Courses con- sisted of small arms instruction, guard mounts, tactics, combat conditioning, and other basic subjects. In addition, firing prac- tices were held from the stern of the ship. Inspections, too, were held regularly to prevent laxity in uniforms. Thus, every Marine, leaving a tour of sea duty, was well prepared for duty at a shore unit. The 4th Division always lived up to the highest standards and traditions of the Marine Corps and did an excellent job in maintaining security and law and order during the time the ADMIRAL CAPPS was operating as a Naval transport. y , if if , I' 'I' i!jiif'l,if'i figs' Ii' .

On a ship the size of the Admiral Capps there are literally hundreds of mechanical units scattered throughout the ship. The task assigned the motor machinistls mates, machinist's mates, and Bremen of 5-A Divi- sion was that of continually.checking and maintaining this as- sorted equipment. To begin with, 5-A Division maintained all of the refrigera- tion machinery upon which the Capp's perishable foodstuffs and stores depended. The continual functioning of this machinery was essential in order to prevent spoilage. Each of the 52 scuttle- butts contained a refrigeration unit to be cared for. Add to this the various pantry, galley, and miscellaneous cold units, and you have a general picture of the refrigeration maintenance problem aboard ship.

Switching pumps in the steering engine room In addition to refrigeration, 5-A Division was charged with the maintenance and repair of all gasoline and Diesel engines aboard. This included boat engines, Diesel generators and pumps, and handybillies. All cargo Winches, boat Winches, and the anchor Windlass had to be checked and periodically greased. The galley with its machinery presented a major problem. It contained units, nearly as many and complicated as those in the main engineering spaces, involving steam, fuel oil burners, large pumps, a garbage grinder, potato peelers, a dough mixer, etc. The machinery in the laundry and tailor shop could give, and did give, as much trouble as any department on the ship.

If your laundry was a day late in returning, don't com- plain -if it hadn't been for a couple of machinist's mates work- ing overtime on a tumbler or a presser, you might not have it back yet. One of 'the most important units maintained by 5-A was the steering engine. Oil was forced by hydraulic pumps into the rams at even greater pressure than that of the steam used to drive the main turbines. During maneuvering conditions both pumps operated continuously, in case one fails, the load is auto- matically shifted to the other. Normal operation at sea required only one unit. The complete ventilation system fexcept for motors and their controlling devices which 5-E Division handledj was another job for 5-A Division. This entailed a great amount of cleaning. The blowers and suction and discharge screens became filled with dust and Waste rapidly. The heaters also required constant maintenance and repair due to steam leaks, frozen traps and regulating valves which had become deranged. When the enormous number of mechanical devices outside the enginerooms proper are considered, not to mention the great variety of those devices, it is a tribute to the industry and efficiency of 5-A Division that this machinery was made inconspicuous by its continued smooth functioning. ffm Checking the ice machines 5-B DIVISION Deep down in the machinery spaces the firemen and water- tenders of 5-B Division stood watch on the four, 600 p. s. i., 8400 boilers. Two watches were stood, one in each machinery space. The watches in each Hreroom consisted of either two or three firemen and a watertender in charge. Theirs was the job of sup- plying steam at the proper pressure and temperature in accord- ance with the varying demands of the turbines, heating systems, and miscellaneous auxiliary equipment. Under steady steam- ing conditions the Hreroom watch maintained constant vigilance over the various gages, indicating the supply of fuel oil, air, and water, and the temperature of this supply. The watertenders work was greatly reduced by the installa- tion of the Hagan Combustion Control board which automati- cally regulated the amount of fuel oil, air and water going into I Changing burner: in thc fire room Oil King fueling ship the boilers. However, due to the extremely high temperatures and pressures employed in boilers and the rapid fluctuation of steam demands, mechanical control could not be entirely re- lied upon and, the watertender on watch had to keep constantly alert to avoid damage to the equipment or injury to the fire- room personnel. The monotony of a fireroorn watch under steady steaming conditions is broken by the changing of burners, shifting of fuel oil strainers, injection of soot reducing chemicals, the addition of boiler water compound, and the blowing of tubes. When the ship is maneuvering, the normal routine of watchful waiting becomes one of quick thinking, tenseness, and rapid action.

The air supply must be adjusted to provide for proper combustion in the furnace, and the supply of water must he regulated to keep the Water in the boilers at a constant level, Since boilers cannot be secured for any length of time while underway, the majority of repair work must be done in port. Valves and piping must be repaired, gages calibrated, soot and scale accumulations removed, etc. In addition to this, the ship must be fueled for the next trip - a tricky operation if it is to be done at top speed and without allowing the oil to over- flow or the ship to take on a list. ln addition to the above, further credit reflects on the men of SMB Division when it is realized that their Work was done in the withering heat of the fireroom where temperatures were seldom less than IOOO F. and reached I2OO F. in hot climates, such as. the Panama Canal Zone. The firemen and watertenders of the ADMIRAL CAPPS, who, with little or no sea experience, stepped aboard a strange ship and operated the boilers throughout the vsar without a single major fireroom casualty, have good reason to be proud of a difficult job well done Check man adjustzn g fcedwatcr supply 5-E DIVISICN Operating, maintaining, and repairing electrical equipment, from truck lights to shaft revolution counters in the bilges, was the task of 5-E Division and its electrician's mates. The ship's main propulsion equipment was largely electri- cal, and in addition, there were four auxiliary generators to supply power for auxiliary machinery and lighting. Members of this division learned to operate and stand watch on two, 30 ft. switch- boards. The operation of the generators and switchboards was largely automatic due to voltage regulators on the switchboard and hydraulic governors on the generators. The maintenance work included routine upkeep of two of the largest marine motors in existence--the 9,000 h. p. main propulsion motors. This division was subdivided into three sections-lighting, power and interior communications. The lighting section had, among other duties, the job of keeping over 3,500 lights burning and the maintenance of adequate ventilation throughout the ship. This section also maintained and repaired all deck machinery since 'Q ff S ynelzronizin g generators on the electrical control panel 6,592 l Y Testing equipment in the light shop all cargo Winches and the anchor windlass were electrically driven. Other equipment handled from the "light shop" included carbon arc searchlights, running lights, signal lights, anchor lights, and storage batteries.

Practically all of the engine room auxiliaries were electrically driven, not to mention the many electrical alarms and control devices, all of which had to be kept operating continually. ISION The interior communications section had charge of a group of equipment including such things as engine order telegraphs, automatic whistle operation, general announcing systems, rudder angle indicators, and both automatic dial and sound powered telephone circuits. Such communications as the above become rather extensive on a ship the size of the ADMIRAL CAPPS and maintenance is consequently a difficult job. However, com- munications, which is the heart and soul of a large modern Naval vessel, must be kept in top-notch condition at all times. One of the most important duties of 5-E Division, and one which does not fall under either of the three above mentioned sections, has been the maintenance of the master gyro compass, gyro repeaters, gyro pilot or "Iron Miken, and the automatic course recorder. Although this division was necessarily decentralized, some of its members working from the power shop, others from the light shop, and still others from the I.C. room or telephone central, its members demonstrated their "espirit de corpsii last Christmas time. When Christmas decorations could not be bought, the division volunteered to make them. Strings of Xmas tree lights, a Haming red cross, ten feet high, for the main mast, and a white star of Bethlehem for the foremast were ingeniously constructed from spare parts and salvage. Their work brought a sincere "well done" from the Captain, who remarked that "it made the CAPPS the shining light of a well decorated Navy Yard." - DIVISION The maintenance of the ship's main propulsion plant was the responsibility of 5-M Division. A twin screw, turbo-electric drive, propulsion plant furnished the 20,000 H.P. necessary to push the ship along at 25.5 knots. The source of all power aboard the ship was four, 600 p.s.i., 8400 F. boilers installed in pairs, two in each of the machinery spaces. The superheated steam drove the 6890 K.W'. main turbo-generators at 3600 R.P.M. producing a 60 cycle, 3 phase current, 3400 volts. The electrical power, thus gener- ated, operated the two main motors. These motors were 60 pole, Y connected, synchronous motors. Each turbo-generator normally supplied only one motor. Since the starting torque of a synchronous motor is exceeding- ly small, the two main motors were made, so that during the starting period, they acted as induction motors and consequently l Opening throttle valve on main turbine Checlqing jacking gear on main motor produced a large starting torque. When the motor 1S up to speed, 3 it then acts as a synchronous motor. A pressure-closed feed system was used on the ADMIRAL CAPPS. To complete the cycle of this system the steam leaving the main turbine was condensed in the main condenser and then pumped to the low pressure feed heater by the main condensate pumps. Here the condensate was heated and then discharged to the deaerating tank. In the deaerating tank the condensate was further heated and the oxygen was removed from the water. From the deaerating tank the condensate, now termed feed water, was pumped back into the boilers by the main feed pump, thus completing the steam cycle. ,- IQ cows f+ - A 0,4 l ..f I 1 1 L4 XVHYS SOE? iiflff Elppiifafli. d by the 80.000 from this so' ' f ' In ad condenser generators 4 '41 A+.f3-- Ll - 53:11 ' 3 . . .4 . .. xi lower machine lube oil p 11,-viva. im' s ..4-. , , sanitary of r, as Q maids? fy nm-tcm rs up to speed. rd on the ADMIRAI- mm the steam Icavifl8 in md thtn I N513-.R fiflknsatc 3560 fd to ,Q sbt tifllllkflutf was med irw' if 'ad' W' mud hed H -M DIVISION Since only a few repairs can be made to the main plant while underway, members of 5-M Division stood a "throttle watchn at Lathe work in the machine shop In spite of the closed cycle in the feed system, there was al- ways some steam and water loss through leakage, noncondensing apparatus, and nonreturn drain systems. This loss was made up by the operation of two distiller condensers supplying a total of 80.000 gallons per day. The entire ship's fresh water supply came from this source. In addition to the main propulsion plant and the distiller condensers, 5-M Division was responsible for the auxiliary turbo- generators and the various auxiliary machinery located on the lower machinery level, such as, feed pumps, circulating pumps, lube oil pumps, bilge pumps, fresh water pumps, and fire and sanitary pumps. the main control panel, an "oiler watchn on the lower machinery level, and an "evaporator watchn on the Distiller condensers. These men on watch kept constant check on the gages and meters that indicated whether or not the plant was functioning properly. Cause of any abnormal operation must be determined immediately and the fault corrected so as to keep the plant opera- ting. Many times this called for work throughout the night since a mechanical apparatus is not respectful of an 8 hour work day. It is due to the willingness of the men in 5-M Division to thus subordinate themselves to the needs of the machinery that the main plant functioned at its rated horsepower day and night, month after month, through smooth or rough weather.

Yet here was a small modern hospital, superbly equipped and ably manned throughout the life of the Admiral W. L. Capps. By far the most important function of H Division was the physical fitness of the ship's personnel. To keep as many men in good health and on the job for the longest possible time was the prime concern of the Medical Department. ' Morning and afternoon sick calls were provided for the outapatients. These patients were seen in the treatment room, complaints were elicited and therapy was provided. A complete X-Ray unit assisted in diagnostic procedures.

Nearby was a Well stocked Pharmacy where every type of commonly used drug was dispensed. For the in-patient or bed case, there were 5 modern hospital wards With a total capacity of 66 beds. Included were 3 large wards, a sick officers quarters, and an isolation ward for infectious diseases. Hospital corpsmen were in constant attendance and ward rounds by the Medical Olhcers were made on each patient twice daily. Every kind of common hospital ailment was seen in the wards throughout the voyages of the AP-121.

Medical ailments included Malaria, Heart Conditions, Kidney involvement and Pneumonia among many others. The Surgical cases were myriad. A spotless operating room, which would provide satisfaction to the most meticulous of skilled surgeons, was the pride of the hospital. Here both major and minor surgery were performed in the manner of a shore-based general hospital. Appendectomies, Tonsillectomies, draining of infections and the reduction and casting of fractures were common procedures. A very important section of Sick Bay was the dental office. Here two of the finest dental units available were presided over by a competent dental surgeon. A diversified laboratory, staffed by well trained technicians, assisted in the diagnostic procedures. The Medical Officer's of- Hce was conveniently used as a consultation room, and next to it was the important clerical office for the necessary medical records. The diet pantry, strong rooms or "padded cells" and the store- room for medical supplies completed the space in the Sick Bay area. Yet not all of H Division activities were limited to Sick Bay. The ship's sanitation was the direct responsibility of the Medical Officers. Inspection of food and water, cleanliness, berthing quarters and the condition of the heads were further necessary functions. Daily inspection of the brig and prisoners was included in the inspections. The record of the Medical Department of the Admiral W. L. Capps is excellent and can be looked on with pride by not only H Division, but the entire crew. I l 1 The Pharmacy N DIVISIQN Did it concern the safe navigation or communications of the ship? Then, N Division had the men and material. Quarter- masters, radiomen, signalmen, yeomen, electronic technician mates, radarmen, mailmen, and strikers. This division usually had the "hot dope" on where we are going, when, why, etc. The "bridge gangl' was responsible for an alert topside watch. Quartermasters supervised the work for the helmsmen and mes- sengers, maintained a log in the bridge book and assisted the Of- ficer-of-the-Deck in his function as a direct representative of the Captain in the safe navigation of a vessel. ln this latter capacity he assumed a great deal of responsibility 3 performing such duties as taking bearings, keeping charts up-to-date, etc. This relieved the Oflicer-of-the-Deck of all such details allowing him to get a A Quartermaster takes a bearing Signaling an aerial escort better perspective of the existing situation and thereby making for safer handling of the ship. Radarmen on watch supplied much needed information, es- pecially in wartime. Radar, as much as any other single piece of equipment, was responsible for the success of our Navy in the war. This equipment enabled us to beat the enemy to the punch by giving us advance knowledge of their position, course, speed and friendliness. However, radar gear, without the intelligent use of the equipment, could be worse than nothing at all. It could lead us to erroneous and perhaps fatal conclusions. It was the radarmenls job to interpret the meaning of the splotchy, pale, or greenish screen on which he kept watch.

The lives of 5,000 men, many supplies and a valuable ship rested on his alertness and ability. Operating alone or in convoy, the radiomen stood con- tinuous watches guarding fleet and local frequencies. Radio trans- mitters in their main radio room or emergency shack reached any part of the world. Coupled with the two aforementioned rates, comes the electronic technician mates. Formerly radio techni- cians, the advent of war and science gave them added duties. Their job of maintaining all radar and radio gear in good operat- ing condition was only accomplished by diligent day-by-day care. "Have a yeoman do it", a phrase heard often on any ship, usually fell on the ears of the chief yeoman and his men in the Personnel Office. Theirs was the most monotonous job of all. Handling the ship's correspondence, maintaining service records, and filling out reports. The importance of this routine clerical work should not be overlooked. The "paper workn aboard a modern naval vessel, although somewhat complex, provides for eflicient administration. As can be seen, each of the approximately eight different ratings in this division assumed its particular share of the load assigned to N Division and aided that division in establishing an enviable record. Copying FOX in the radio room R DIVISION The most unglamorous job of all fell to R Division. Theirs was the never ending and thankless task of keeping the hull and its Httings in top shape at all times. Something was always breaking or otherwise causing trouble, and it was found necessary to keep men continually patrolling the ship looking for clogged drain lines, broken water lines, leaky valves, damaged bunks, and the countless other troubles that occur aboard a large ship. Seldom an hour went by that the call for C and R Patrol did not come over the P. A. system. Most of us became accustomed to this call and took it for granted, not realizing that each such call meant another disagreeable task to be performed by this busy division. h In addition to the repair work accomplished by R Division all construction or alterations, not sufficiently large to require the attention of a Navy Yard, were undertaken by this division. This includes the building of storerooms for the use of various other divisions, and lockers and racks of all descriptions. Most of this Operating the "Handy Billy" fre pump Burning of at zomm. gun mount Work was time consuming although, perhaps, from the standpoint of the carpenter's mates attached to the division, it was the most enjoyable. At the beginning of the war the subject of damage control was little known or practiced. After a number of U. S. Navy vessels had been lost that could have been saved, more emphasis was placed on this function, and when the Capps was placed in commission, provisions were made for an adequate damage control organization. R Division was the the backbone of the Admiral Capps, three repair parties located fore, aft, and amidships. These parties were equipped with the latest of damage control gear and were proficient in the use of that gear. It was necessary for the men in this division to master the use of the large and small portable fire pumps submersible pumps. the control of darna such as, the proper I that are found aboar and how to appif: e a hole in the ship Although not 5 related to it. is th cofferdams daily the amount of irate that space. the 'W 1'-6 '71 "V -'arettlpotnt we 1- the most Mruage control tt li 9 Navy ., more emphasis Q tiegw mas VEQCCLI in -51 t'-s iamage control wtf., ,Q the Admiral 3 '-", Vggrhirlwiiillri. ,-,,,if- Mm,-tsl gear and ,Ht 'H-Q,-tft-mars for the the large and small R DIVISION The carpenter sh op .QMHI portable fire pumps, rescue breathing apparatus, asbestos suits, submersible pumps, and much other equipment designed for the control of damage. Certain skills also had to be mastered, such as, the proper Way to Hght the three different types of fires, that are found aboard ship, how to shore up weakened bulkheads, and how to apply emergency patches to a broken pipeline or to a hole in the ship's hull. Although not strictly classed as damage control, but closely related to it, is the routine job of sounding all tanks, voids, and coflerdams daily to determine the amount of water in each. If the amount of water in a given void exceeds the safe limit for that space, the engineroom is notified and the space is pumped out. Allied to this task of taking routine soundings is the maintenance of the proper list, trim, and stability of the ship. Here the First Lieutenant, who is in charge of R Division, must cooperate with the Engineering Ofhcer to obtain the desired results. R Division Was, perhaps, one of the least appreciated and un- derestimated divisions aboard. These men deserve credit for a disagreeable job performed in a pleasant and efficient manner. The carpenter? males handle the anchor wz'ndla5.f DIVISION The Supply Department performed Hve major functions which contributed to the efficient operation of the ship and the welfare of the crew, i.e. supply, pay, commissary, clothing, and ship's store. Each of the above functions was independent of one another, but all were under the direction of the Supply Officer. The function of supply was to see that the vessel had a stock of general supplies and that each piece of equipment on the ship had necessary parts for repairs. In addition to the primary duty of general supplies and parts for each piece of equipment on the ship they arranged for transportation of personnel, eligible de- pendents, freight, household effects, military impedimenta, etc. The official work connected with these duties was performed by a staff of storekeepers. The function of pay was to maintain a pay card for each Ea-4'-L--5 v-Q saa, Lff The .vlzz'p's laundry Steam lqettles in the troopif galley man, and disburse the amount due the men on regular pay days. Other duties falling under the function of pay include dissemi- nation of information on overnment insurance war bonds fam- g 7 7 ily allowances, and allotments of pay and the preparation of vari- ous forms and reports pertaining to those matters. The commissary department was responsible for the pro- curement, preparation and serving of the 3I40,000.00 worth of food consumed by crew and passengers on the Admiral Capps since commissioning. Two War born innovations in the de- partment were dehydrated foods and the mass production of ice cream, the former, unpopular but a necessity, and the latter, ex- tremely popular and just as necessary. Long periods at sea, or away from a supply depot, placed a premium on stowage space, and dehydrated foods were the answer.

A full stock of required uniform clothing, enabling the crew to be the neatest Navy in the world, was carried in the clothing locker. Clothing was purchased wholesale and issued at cost, put- ting the middleman and retailers profits in the enlisted man's pocket. In addition to uniform clothing, small stores, such as, buttons, sewing kits, jackknives, whisk brooms, and shine outfits, were available. The shipls service store was a combination of neighborhood services and a retail confectionery. A clean, two chair, barber shop kept hair trimmed to Navy standards, a tailor shop repaired torn clothing and pressed dress uniforms, and a laundry washed clothes for the entire crew. All this was done free of charge. The price of all products offered for sale in the shipls store included only a nominal profit. The government is reimbursed for original cost, but the proht is used as a welfare fund on board ship. To a great extent the morale and efficiency of any seagoing unit is dependent upon how well the Supply Department, including the above de- scribed related activities, does its job. ln the case of the "Admiral A. L. Cappsl' much of the credit for the ship,s high morale goes to this Division. X7 s f r ' Q. r A N - Q at 621 -h I .tw 6 I I The Barber Shop W DIVISION On sl1ip's of the Coast Guard the services of the Steward and SteWard's Mate are important in supplying the officers with some of the comforts and conveniences of home. The efficiency of an oHicer's work is increased materially if he has clean wholesome food served in clean dishes and a Well kept room with a clean comfortable bed to sleep in. Likewise the eliiciency of the ship is increased, for not only does the officer do his work better, but he is more cheerful, and his attitude will be reflected in the men under his command. Therefore, the morale of the entire ship is affected. Since the Work of the mess attendant has a direct bearing on the ship's efficiency, it is essential that he do his Work Well, that he serve promptly and cheerfully, and that he keep the com- partments, rooms and gear, assigned to him, tidy and clean at all lose prepares the Captain? meal gy ' s . S W The Ship? Ojiccrs Wardroom times. In general the above mentioned items are the desired re- sult of HW" Division performance and service, and the record of the men serving aboard the Admiral Capps in this division has been commendable. Our ship being one of the largest transports in the service, we naturally have more first class cabins and space than the average vessel, and so a greater number of passenger officers has been accommodated. Thus, "W,' Division has had to add to its normal assignment of around 35 ship's officers, their compartments, the ship ofiicer's Wardroom and all the area making up ship ofiicer's country, the additional load of approximately 300 troop officers and the areas assigned to the latters use.

In this respect the men of "WH Division have shown their versatility and capability in meeting and solving all the problems arising with the change in services for each new group of passengers. As a result our pas- sengers have been pleased with the care they have received and the record of the ship has remained excellent. In that period of the ship's history before the war ended, the men of "WH Division all had their battle stations, knew their job at general quarters thoroughly and carried it out to the best of their ability. Our stewards and steward's mates were assigned duties ranging from stretcher bearers and ammunition passers to an active position in a gun crew. And those gun crews which they constituted had a record of team work and efficiency which was unsurpassed on the ship. In addition to their regular duties the men are assigned duties for fire, fire and rescue, collision and abandon ship. In the history of the Capps "W" Division has played an important, a commendable and a necessary role and the men who have made up this division can feel that they have rendered a fine service and contribution to the success of our ship. Preparing salads in the pantry ARMY TRAN PORTATION TAFF Since the main function of the ADMIRAL CAPPS was the transporting of troops, it was found necessary to assign a number of Army Officers and men whose duties were to load troops, care for them enroute, and prepare them for disembarking. To ac- complish this, the Army assigned three officers and four enlisted men. During embarkation, the Transportation Staff assisted the men in locating the berths assigned to them by the Staff and in straightening out any stoppages or slowing down of the loading. As soon as the embarkation is completed, troop officers are assigned as compartment commanders and hatch commanders. Details are then assigned, some 825 men being required for this duty, and the shipboard troop organization is then put into effect. One oliicer of the Transport Staff is assigned the duty of Special Services Officer. His function is to maintain morale during an otherwise boring voyage by organizing recreational facilities, publishing a daily paper, arranging for arrival telegrams to be sent and handling all troop personnel problems. As the voyage draws to an end, the troops are schooled in debarkation and drills are held to familiarize the men with the procedure to be used. When the actual debarkation takes place, the Army Transport Staff is present to insure that the operation runs smoothly. The Army Transportation Staff has done an excellent job in handling the troops. Due to their efforts the efhciency of the ADMIRAL CAPPS as a troop transport has been materially in- creased.

He conducts divine services at least every Sunday. During those moments the smoking lamp is respectfully extinguished and the church pennant flies above the shipls ensign. When conditions warrant, services are held topside with the sky as a canopy for the altar. The Chaplain is welcomed in the ofhcers, wardroom as well as in any of the crew's quarters. He is confidant, confessor, ad- visor. The sympathy chit is associated with every Chaplain wherever American Forces gather and most men joke about the T.S. card. Yet, as all admit, there is a particular need for someone to remove worry from a troubled mind. It always helps to have someone share your misery and the Chaplain not only answers this need but many times gets a receding hairline for his worries. The men look to the Chaplain "to go to bat for themw and, in this expectation, confer upon him his most difficult role. He is the last resort for a man hoping to gain a special favor, and his batting average will depend mainly on how well his persuasive talents work on the Executive Officer. As aids in his recreational work, a collateral duty, the Chaplain draws on the Red Cross, the USO and the local welfare organiza- tions. From these he gathers athletic equipment, arranges theatri- cals, plans tours, conducts socials. Such activities mean much to the morale of the American youth whom the Chaplain proudly serves. .13 Jil' I 'K ,.,, .,.,. . ,+- 'Wis ,bf I -1114" The nga af the MPP li x P1 hiia' 'fi- ns AIM V JL Q-.,,, if-xp' 5,-WY 'R ' vw" Q, N. .

She was outfitted at the Bethlehem Shipyard, San Fran- cisco, California in 1944. It was while she was being outhtted that the crew began to form at the Manning Section on Government Island. As early as March, 1944, officers and men were assigned to her precommissioning detail and sent to Government Island to sit and wait and go to schools. There were damage control schools, fire fighting schools, gunnery schools, tactics schools, anti-aircraft schools, recognition schools, telephone talker schools, lookout schools, engineering schools, compass schools, firecontrol schools, chemical warfare schools, etc., ad infinitum. When one had finished all the schools which his duties aboard ship would require, he was started all over again to see if he had learned anything the Hrst time through. It was good duty though. The beach has always been preferred by those who love liberty and never let it be said that the men of the ADMIRAL CAPPS didnft love their liberty. The First commissioning date of the ADMIRAL CAPPS was set as I5 August, 1944, the second was set as I5 September, 1944, the third was set as 1330, 18 September, 1944, and finally she was placed in commission at 1530, 18 September, 1944. At 1330, 18 T Q . 4 a.,,.,,, W The CAPPS after cornmzssiozzzizg September all of the crew and officers were in formation ready and Waiting for the commissioning, but there was no commissioning party from the District Office and the irrelevant information that the commissioning ceremonies had been postponed was received for the first time. Everyone relaxed for another hour and then fell back into place for the real thing. To the black gang, who had been getting acquainted with the engine rooms and plant for two months or more, there was nothing particularly new about the ship, but to the rest of the crew it was big and easy to get lost in. For days men continued to be late for muster because they had lost their way from their quarters to the division parade. However, there were no reported cases of malnutrition because of anyone losing his way to the mess deck. Another trouble was that no one knew anyone else and if a man didn't want to work he could quickly lose his identity and no one could find him. This confusion lasted for about a week, then things began to settle down, or should I say shakedown? The morning after commissioning, the ADMIRAL CAPPS was moved across the bay to Naval Supply Depot, Oakland, for her initial loading. The two catch-phrases and pass-words of the ensuing week were, "round-the-clockv, and "all-hands evolution". The first referred to a system of working in shifts, 24 hours a day. The second referred to everybody working at the same time. The combination of the two will make everyone who participated remember that week as the toughest on the ship. Everything from 5" shells to paper clips had to be loaded and when one considers the expanse of the No. 5 hold and the fact it was filled with beans, flour, sugar, coffee, and numerous other edibles, one will realize that it was an enormous job. After ship was loaded we went out into the bay to swing compass, adjust deguassing, perform several other necessary evo- lutions before starting out on the shakedown cruise. It was on 29 September that we sailed from San Francisco for San Pedro to begin the shakedown cruise. We took our time on the way south so that we would have a chance to get the crew organized and acquainted with the ship and have a few drills so that there wouldn't be complete confusion when the San Pedro Shake- down Group started running us through the mill.

We had it at least twice a day. Fire, abandon ship and collision ranked next in that order. If there were actually a fire in the decontamination locker for every time there has been a simulated fire there, it would look worse than a fire school boiler room mock-up. We fin- ished the shake- down drills on I3 October and passed the Final examina- tion on the 14th. Then we went into the Naval Dry- docks, at Sari Pedro for the post shake- down availability. We were in for alterations and re- pairs for a full month during which Simulate Fire in emergency time there were diesel Generator Room more men over the hill than at any other period in the history of the ship. The average daily number of AWOL's was about twenty. Whenever someone would get tired of civilian life and decide to come back, someone else would go out to take his place. One of them didn't come back until the following February. The sudden transition from a shore bound civilian to a seagoing military man was a little too dillicult for some of the crew to adjust themselves to. This was to be expected and penalties for being AWOL were conse- quently light. . f 3 i Stand by for a port ran When the availabil- ity was completed, we went hack to San Fran- cisco to load up for the first trip. Our cargo consisted of 1,000 tons of Christmas mail for men in the South Pa- cific. We Hlled up the holds and then filled up a lot of troop compart- ments.

This was our hrst foreign port of the first voyage and everyone was anxious to get ashore and have a look around. The Iapanese had never been to Noumea but the Americans had taken over. Traffic on the streets was as heavy, considering the number of lanes, as it is on Broadway or Market Street- all with army trucks, jeeps, com- mand cars, ambulances, staff cars and bicycles. Only one-half of the crew got liberty but their four hours ashore stands out as the most riotous liberty of them all. The cargo nets carried strange cargo aboard that night.

This was our first good contact fand the bestj with the Pacific Island natives. The Solomon Islanders were too lazy and unintelligent to work as stevedores so ia labor battalion had been imported from the Gilbert-Ellice Islands to work the cargo on the ships. They had learned to operate Winches and lifts but their greatest accomplishment was their skill at their version of foot- ball and their singing. Football to them was like volley ball to us, except that they played it with their feet with a ball of paper wrap- ped with twine to hold it together. Only their "Sargent" wore shoes and the rest of them had feet big enough to give them perfect control, of the ball. Their singing and dancing always drew a crowd at noontime. They sang their native Polynesian songs which had harmony, solos, counter-melodies and a lot of other musical qualities which this writer is not qualified to explain. At least, it wasn't the drum beating war chant that some of us ex- pected. It was at Guadalcanal that the ADMIRAL CAPPS began to feel that she really had a part in this war. As soon as the cargo was unloaded, the loading of passengers began. 353 of the pas- sengers were casualties- unable to walk. Another 358 were ambulatory casualties, who were quartered in regular troop spaces. Those who saw the number of missing legs and arms and band- aged eyes will never forget it. If we could take these men home quickly and safely we felt that we at least would have helped a little.

Unloading of mail and embarking of passengers Was completed that night and the next morning, and We sailed for San Francisco on the afternoon of the 16th. We were diverted to San Diego on the 23rd and arrived there in the evening of the 26th. Thus we had sailed on Thanksgiving Day and arrived back on the day after Christmas. All of the casualties and most of the passen- gers Were unloaded at San Diego and in less than 24 hours we were on our Way to San Francisco again. We arrived in San Francisco late in the evening of the 28th of December, 1944, completing the maiden voyage. lt was dis- covered in the inspections of the ship during the following Week that at some time or other, Qprobably in the crash stop tests Navy Barracks on ESPIRITU SANTO 1 Tlze casualties get tlzeir first loolq at the states - San Diego, Cali during shakedownb, too much strain had been placed on the main propulsion motors and that the pole pieces had been pulled out of shape to such an extent that they would have to be re- placed. There were several other desirable alterations and nec- essary repairs, which would have warranted an availability period, but because of the large number of ships in the San Francisco harbor at the time, it was deemed necessary to repair only the motors. Thirty-five days elapsed before the ADMIRAL CAPPS was ready to sail again. This was regarded by many as the best in-port period of any that we ever had. Being close in to town made liberty very con- venient as well as enjoyable. It was there that we "got" our first dock. It was about 0730 one morning, when the marine officer had the gangway, that the bollards and cleats on the pier began to pull out, one by one, and the ship drifted out into the slip. The marine officer didn't know what to do so he did nothing-thus greatly reducing the amount of confusion which is customarily present at such operations. The day's duty officer ordered the anchor dropped to hold us in our displaced position and then lowered a boat to carry lines back to the dock. These lines were then used to warp us into the dock. We were ready to sail again on 5 February, loaded with 3215 passengers bound for New Guinea. Our first stop was Finchafen, British New Guinea. We entered the harbor, received orders to go to Hollandia, turned around and departed. If you call that an in-port turn around, that was our fastest. We now thought that we were getting into the war zone. There were Iaps all around us- they were all starving and hadn't fought back for months but they were still Iaps.

We were sadly disappointed. No submarines attacked us, we ran into no mines, no airplanes strafed us and no surface raiders shelled us. As a matter of fact, we found that the closer we got to the fighting, the brighter the lights burned at night. Los Angeles harbor was better blacked out than Hollandia or any of the other bases we later visited. We arrived in Hollandia in the early morning fog of 21 Feb- ruary. There we waited for a convoy to form so that we could proceed to Leyte, but the convoy of three ships and two escorts took a week to form and in the meantime we picked up 647 pas- sengers, 157 tons of hold cargo and 27 tons of deck cargo. We would have had more had we been willing to take it. They seemed to be trying to move all of Hollandia up to Leyte. In the late afternoon of 28 February our convoy formed. We were convoy commodore, the USS RIXEY CAPH-35 and the S.S. BRITISH COLUMBIA EXPRESS were the other members and the destroyers YOUNG and STEVENS were the escorts. We and the RIXEY were going to Leyte and the others were going to Manila. Distinguished passengers aboard the BRITISH COLUMBIA EXPRESS Ca Norwegian shipj were General Douglas Mac Arthur's wife and family. That is why she rated two destroyers for escorts. Being in a convoy was new to us-let alone being convoy commodore. The O. Dfs and the signalmen really had a work- 'H- Dawn Alert on the way to Leyte Got any mattress covers, C hzco? , out. One O.

We had one en- counter with a uprobablev enemy submarine in this leg of the journey. The convoy executed an emergency turn to get out of the way and the escorts dropped depth charges - waking every- one up below decks. We didn,t stay around to see if it was really a submarine or not. We arrived at San Pedro Bay in the afternoon of 4 March and anchored so far away from Tacloban, Leyte fwhere the Port Directorls olhce was locatedj that it would have taken our boats Wharf-rats on az Lcytc' waterfront A - Q t f K - w'f2'aY4XQ, N ' 1 t s x I . , . , sv sf f '- - X , 4. .

It looked as though they were trying to put us out so far that we couldn't get in to bother them and then just let us rust there. The Captain pulled a fast one though. He went to the nearby beach in a boat and then hitch-hiked into Tacloban to build a fire under the people in the Port Director's ollice so that We could get unloaded and leave. He did get our anchorage changed the next day and the day after that we disembarked the army passengers. Then we steamed to the Guinan Roadstaed, Samar to disembark the Navy passengers. With all the passengers ofl, we 'came back to San Pedro Bay to unload cargo, embark passengers, and wait for another convoy to form. Our passengers for the return trip included about 1100 sol- diers and marines and 800 civilian former internees in the Santo Tomas Uapanesej internment camp in Manila. Among the latter were about 200 women and children. The superstructure deck was transformed into a playground for the children and the sick bay into a nursery for the babies. The carpenterls mates worked overtime to make swings, sand boxes and play tables. The seamen had to make a network of lashing between the rails to keep the little rascals from falling through. The ones who were small enough to fall between the railings were no trouble at all. It was the ones who were too old for the swings and sand boxes that caused the trouble.

The adult male civilians were in the poorest physical condi- tion. They had been worked the hardest and fed the least in the internment camp. Three days at sea from Leyte one of them died and was buried at sea with military honors fhaving served with the Marine Corpsj. The ship's photographer got several good pictures of the services but when he sent them to Washing- ton to the public Relations Department someone got mixed up and sent them out for publication with the following caption: "GRAVE IN THE PACIFIC - A Marine guard salutes in final tribute to a comrade whose life was part of the price of Americals advance on Okinawa. On the deck of a Coast Guard Manned Troop Transport, the Chaplain reads the service as Coast Guards- men stand ready to drop the deceased over the side from beneath the folds of the Stars and Stripes". The ADMIRAL CAPPS sailed from Leyte in the afternoon of 20 March in convoy Qas commodorej with four mer- chant tankers and two escorts. The destination of the convoy was Man- us, Admiralty Is- lands, where we arrived at noon on 26 March. We Burial ut S eu were only there four hours-long enough to receive our orders - and then we sailed for San Francisco unescorted. We were soon diverted to Pearl Harbor where we picked up F .B.I., Immigra- tion and Customs Officials who were to process the civilians en- route to San Francisco in the morning of 8 April. That was the morning that the radar men plotted the Faralon Islands on a course of 1040 T. at a speed of 4 knots. All of the passengers and cargo were off the ship by 2300. We made the newspapers for the first time since commissioning in that this group of civilian internees was the largest to arrive in San Francisco on one ship. The next day the ADMIRAL CAPPS sailed for Seattle to go into a shipyard for drydocking and availability. Twenty-one days were allotted for the work, and it was all finished in that time. Long leaves were granted to lucky ones in the crew- especially lucky because this was the only time in the ship's his- tory that she came into port knowing 'that she would be there IS days or more.

During this availability a hot plastic coating was put on the bottom so that she would not need dry-docking so soon the next time. As soon as the availability was finished, we moved to the loading pier to prepare for the next trip. Cur passengers were to be the 519th Bombardment Group, known in the Mediterranean area as "Holzapple's Flying Circusf' after their famous commanding oHicer, who developed the system for Hying his airplanes off the ground seven Cmaybe sixj abreast in order to save fuel and thus increase their bombing range. They had two Presi- dential Citations to show for their work in Africa and Italy so that there really must have been something to the stories they told us. They were on their way to Okinawa now, to fly the new A-26,8 and win the war in the Pacific. They carried the baggage of important passengers, too. It took four full days to load their IO53 tons of equipment and our ship only carried part of it. The flyers and their supporting units came aboard on the 6th and 7th of May and we sailed for Pearl Harbor at noon on the 7th. For the first two days out of Seattle we ran into the roughest weather the ADMIRAL CAPPS had yet encountered. As com- pared with later trips in the Atlantic, it wasn't especially bad, but in that it was the first, it tested the ship out to see how sea-worthy she was. She was plenty sea-worthy, but things weren't very well secured. Garbage cans and crates of potatoes were rolling freely back and forth across the mess deck, books and papers were thrown out of desks and bookcases in the oflices and officers' rooms, but the worst of all was the safe in the finance office which broke loose from its moorings, slid across the deck and pinned a storekeeper ,s - - a ' a ' z 1 Loading the "Flying Circus" in Seattle between it and the opposite bulkhead. An X-ray examination revealed that he had a fractured sacrum and multiple fractures of the pubic bones, with ruptured urethra membranes. It was neces- sary to operate immediately and with the ship slowed down and headed into the sea, two doctors performed a successful operation. The patient was transferred to the Naval Hospital at Pearl Harbor. We arrived at Pearl Harbor in the evening of I2 May and departed 24 hours later with orders to proceed to Eniwetok, Mar- shall Islands for further onward routing. We arrived at Eniwetok in the morning of 20 May and upon entering the harbor were ordered to go alongside the tanker S. S. MARICOSA for fueling. The MARICOSA was quite a bit smaller than the ADMIRAL CAPPS and with a strong wind blowing on the first attempt to tie up, the tankeris anchor dragged and we had to cast off and try again. On the second attempt the anchor dragged again but in addition, some damage was inflicted on the tanker's boat davit, liferafts, and running light so that it was decided not to make a third try. In the afternoon the tanker, S. S. SPARROWS POINT came alongside the ADMIRAL CAPPS. This time the damage Sharpening our eye before leaving Peagiblarbor SA' 9' - , ii.

We lay at anchor in Eniwetok until Iune 5th. Iudging from the news reports at that time, the battle for Okinawa was not going as it had been planned-necessitating a delay in the arrival of units such as the bombardment groups which were to operate from the island rather than over it. It was also signihcant that the AD- MIRAL CAPPS sailed on one and one-half hours' notice the day following the first good news indicating the capture of the Naha airdrome.

Perry Island was one of the Eniwetok group which was given "the worksn by naval bombardment when we took that atoll. As a result there were no trees left and nothing else to give shade. The beach was very nice, though, and as long as one didn't have to stay there too long, he could enjoy himself. The ADMIRAL CAPPS had carried women passengers be- fore but never women passengers like it had this time. There were 50 Army nurses and two Red Cross girls who were a never ending source of pride and trouble. The Marines had to chase them off the superstructure deck after taps at night, and later, when their hours were extended to 2300 and the O. D. would sing out a soft, melodious, "lt's twenty-three hundred", on the public address sys- tem, the marines would still have to chase them below. They went ashore to the Officers' club on Eniwetok Island, the senior officers, club, that is, and got acquainted with officers from other ships. Then the ofiicers from the other ships started coming around to visit every night. Their boats would be tied up at the boat boom three deep. One of the nurses even rated a salute from a division of destroyer escorts when they pulled out. Six ships steamed by with crews at division parades in dress whites. Each ship saluted as it passed. Someone thought up a new name - U. S. O. AD- MIRAL CAPPS. From Eniwetok we went to Ulithi Atoll in the western Caro- lines, arriving there on 8 Iune and expecting to join a convoy almost immediately to go to Okinawa. But instead, we dropped .eff The nurses exhihit their acting ability rv- Sage The "Flying Circus" holds class on Zhe fanlizil the hook and let it stay for 21 days. I should say that we let it stay the second time we' dropped it. The hrst time we dropped it so close in front of a fleet tanker that her anchor buoy was floating by our gangway. Ulithi, being slightly closer to the equator than Eniwetok, was just as hot, but it had a better recreational island to provide relief and relaxation. Mog-Mog was the name of this little piece of coral. Even the troops were allowed to go ashore there. lt was once thought wise to have them stay over night - and' bring their laundry with them. Sleeping out on the island wasnlt any differ- ent than sleeping out on deck except that the island would be softer. Ulithi was the setting for the CAPPS' "Hot Air Theater" and its one day stand of two performances. Its success can be measured by the remark of Corporal for was it Ist Sergeantj Harrington Cof the garbage detailj when asked what he thought of the show - "It should be thrown overboard with the rest of the garbage? Ulithi was also the place where the nurses were invited on a picnic by an officer with enough rank to get them to go along and then Cafter they got ashorej were charged 35c each for the drinks. During our stay at Ulithi there were five "Flash Red" alerts but the Iaps never came in close enough for us to see them let alone lm A production in progress in the H ot Air Theatre shoot atthem.

This was an 11.5 knot convoy and didn't arrive there until the afternoon of 2 Iuly. The disembarking of troops and unloading of cargo commenced immediately. QA brigadier general of the Army Med- ical Corps came aboard to take the nurses ashore.j All of the passengers were off early the next morning but the cargo took four days, in which the crew worked day and night operating Winches. Uurs was the largest auxiliary vessel to enter the Okinawa area up to that time, and it was greatly desired to get us out before the Kamikaze Corps spotted us. There had been suicide attacks in the area just before we arrived and there were some just after we left, but while we were there, only one enemy plane entered fbut did not leavej the area. There were three "Flash Red" alerts in the six days but no action resulted for the ADMIRAL CAPPS. We loaded about 3000 Marines on the 7th of Iuly and sailed in convoy on the 8th for Saipan. This convoy made I5 knots and we ar- rived there in the morning of the 12th. It was in en- tering Saipan har- bor that the AD- MIRAL CAPPS had her closest ap- proach to tragedy. We stopped to pick up the pilot in the channel with the wind blowing on our starboard beam. Un our port side were anchored a number of destroy- ers and destroyer es- Tfze skipper gives Mag-Mog ez brief tour corts in a line parallel with the channel. While the pilot was coming aboard, we began to drift down on a destroyer escort and in order to avoid it we had to come ahead quickly with left rudder while the DE veered her anchor chain. This maneuver brought us directly between the destroyer escort we had just missed and the destroyer next in the line - with quite a bit of headway on and K.

However, by letting go both anchors and backing down full, we were able to stop about twenty feet short of disaster. There may have been another solution to this situation which would have caused less grey hairs but since this one was successful, we will be satisfied with it. We tied up to a floating pier at Saipan, disembarked the passengers, fwho took along with them everything they could find of value which was not welded down,j and after partially refueling, cast off again and sailed with no passengers at all, for Panama and the Atlantic. This new routing was not a surprise. It had been known for quite some time that troops were being transported directly from Europe to the Pacific areas. The ADMIRAL CAPPS probably would have been in the Atlantic earlier if the third trip hadn't stretched out so long a time. X s N. R ,X A ff t ff, ,f 'uf ,ff ' P , jill?

S. JASPER CROPSEY. We received our orders to rendezvous with her from the Commander, Hawaiian Sea Frontier and then made radio contact with her to learn the details about the sick man. It was decided to trans- fer him to our ship using the IASPER CROPSEY'S boar Qnatu- rally assuming that their's would be better than ours.j When we met them they had trouble lowering their boat. Then they had trouble lowering the sick man. Then they brought along two other men for 'cout patient" treatment - one with a tooth- ache and the other with "general pains." To top everything off, when their boat came alongside, one of our seamen tossed them a heaving line which hit one of their boat crew on the head, cutting it open, thus creating another patient. As soon as all of the patients were treated, they shoved oH in their boat which promptly broke down. We then had to lower one of our boats and tow them back to their ship. The whole operation required three hours with both ships lying dead in supposedly dangerous waters. We arrived at the Canal Zone early in the morning of I2 Iuly and made the transit the same day. We arrived at Cristobal late that evening and tied up to a pier. The next day we re- mained at the pier to take on fuel and supplies. In the mean- time the crew got their first real liberty in almost three months -four whole hours for each section.

As we pulled out that evening, sick bay was heavily laden with sleeping men, and four of the crew were left behind because the shore patrol was unable to find them before sailing time. Our next port was Norfolk, Virginia where we tied up at the Navy Shipyard on the 4th of August. What was intended to be a ten day availability period lengthened into twenty-one days, and what started out to be "voyage repairs" turned into major alterations with the removal of the 1.1" AAimounts and their replacement with 40mm dual mounts. ln the meantime Iapan surrendered and the plans for our going back to the Pacific changed. We now entered the ferry service between Norfolk and European ports. Our first trip in the Atlantic began on the first day of September. We sailed for Marseille and had a smooth trip eastward, averaging 20.3 knots, arriving on 9 September. There we saw what had happened when the port changed from French to German and back to French again. There were sunken ships in every entrance Cexcept one which had been cleared outl, and along all of the piers. The piers and waterfront facilities were still mostly in ruins and a large section of the city just off the waterfront was in ruins from the American bombing. Liberty in Marseille was a new experience for everybody. Probably the main attraction was sight-seeing, with the cathe- dral Notre Dame de la Garde the most visited place.

The Nazis left this ship hehind when they returned to Germany French shops offered perfume, hand-made figurines, silk scarfs and other souvenirs-all at their price, which was prohibitive at the Navy rate of exchange for French money. Marseille has a bad reputation even in France, and our opinion of it Wasn't much higher than its reputation. We sailed from Marseille on II September with 5,496 Army passengers bound back to Norfolk. This was an over- load of 721 passengers so that they had to sleep in shifts on the bunks during the day and on the decks in the passageways at night. Fortunately We didn't have any rough vveather or it would have been extremely uncomfortable for those without assigned bunks. They were happy enough to get home to bear this small discomfort for nine days. We arrived in Norfolk on the 20th of September, stayed five days to load stores and passengers, and then were off on another trip, this time to Naples and Marseille with a load of 3780 Italian Service troops. This was a real confusion drill which could well be called, "The Battle of the Public Address System." The Italians furnished "interpreters" Qwho could hardly speak Englishj to stand Watch on the bridge and make all announcements for the passengers in Italian. By the time the trip was over the crew had heard all the standard announce- ments so many times that they could have made them them- selves. "Attencione, Attencione, sei due, i sei tre a la Mensa'.'7 We arrived in Naples on 5 October, having averaged 18.7 knots. The loss of speed was due mostly to having to slow Mt. Vesuvius in iz quiet mood The eizfy of Naples, Italy down for two days of bad weather., We rolled so badly that 34 life rafts were lost from the sides of the ship and we had to turn into the sea at mealtimes so that those who were eating could keep their food on their trays long enough to eat it. The Italians were so sick the Hrst day that their mess detail didnlt show up to prepare their food, and all they got to eat that day was bread and coffee. They were so hungry the next day that mess detail showed up whether they were sick or not. Sight-seeing was by far the main attraction at Naples. The main trouble was that we didn't stay there long enough to really see the best sights. Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius were seen by everybody who had a chance but the Isle of Capri, Rome and other highly interesting places had to be passed up. Naples itself wasn't in very good condition after all the fighting which The Ruins of Pompeii The C oliseum, Pompeii Th shipper zelfs Genera vvcrzi in there.

The waterfront was the worst damaged, while the city appeared more in need of repairs than in ruins. The massive architecture of the buildings and the art work were very impressive. The souvenir trade was in cameos and in trick- opening jewelry boxes. Every street vendor said that his father made his cameos, but all of the necklaces, bracelets, and brooches had the same design and setting-indicating that some Italians have very large families. Those who went to small shops away from the "main drag", Via Roma, were occasionally able to obtain some very good cameos at very reasonable prices. The children of Naples were also an impressive sight. The streets were crowded with them - in gangs and singly. All of them wanted to sell or buy anything, and if they wanted some- thing which wasn't for sale, they did their best to steal it. One of them came to the ship selling the Mediterranean issue of "Stars and Stripesl' for the exorbitant sum of two cigarettes. He said that he bought the papers for a nickel each and would sell the cigarettes for ten cents each, thus realizing a profit of 57.50 on a 32.50 investment. He did his figuring in American money and he really had it figured out. He said that he sold his cigarettes to German PW,s who got their money by selling on the black market the loot whch they pilfered from American trucks. We left Naples on the 7th of October and arrived in Mar- seille on the 8th. Liberty in Marseille this time was much like the last except that the city had been cleaned up considerably ,and there were fewer Gl's crowding the streets. We embarked SIQI passengers, fan overload of 4205, and sailed for Norfolk on the Ioth of October, arriving there on the 19th. After unloading at Newport News, the ADMIRAL CAPPS moved to the Navy Yard for boiler cleaning, voyage repairs and alterations. Permission was obtained to remove all of the life rafts which were mounted on the sides of the hull, Qsince they were the ones which were being lost in the rough seasj, and at the same time permission was obtained to remove all of the armament except two zomm AA machine guns. All of the repairs and alterations were completed by 3 November, 1945, and on that date, the ADMIRAL CAPPS sailed for Le Havre, France on her sixth voyage. Good weather was encountered for the first three days and then the wind shifted ahead and stayed there for the rest of the seven day trip, making 1 tl ll Ellis., Our pier at Le Havre it rather uncomfortable with wind up to 45 knots. She en- countered her first mine in the channel leading to Le Havre harbor. It was a horned type mine which had broken loose from its cable due to the rough water in the bay. It was sighted - about 200 yards dead ahead -in time to turn the ship to star- board and clear it by 25 yards on the port side. A The turn-around in Le Havre was the quickest of all for a full load of troops. 4329 passengers were embarked in less than 24 hours and the ADMIRAL CAPPS was on her way back to Norfolk on the afternoon of Ilth of November. Anyone who thought the weather was rough on the eastward crossing remem- bered it as a very pleasant trip when he finished the westward crossing. This trip from Le Havre to Norfolk can be marked down as the roughest of all for the ADMIRAL CAPPS. Every- thing was well for the first day, but between 2000 of the 12th and 1300 of the 13th the barometer dropped from 30.14" to 28.83" and the wind on the port beam rose from I5 knots to 58 knots. Then the wind hauled across the bow to starboard. Those who know their weather can tell that we passed mighty close to the center of what the weather central termed a vigor- ous depression. As soon as the wind shifted ahead we had to slow down in order to keep the ship in one piece, but the sea calmed down enough to go back up to standard early in the next morning. This didnlt last long however. Early in the morning of the 16th the seas slowed us down again-this time to a mere 9 knots -for several hours. We didnit get back up to cruising speed again for a day and a half.

Her average speed for the eastward crossing had been 20.2 knots and for the west- ward crossing 16.6 knots. After spending Thanksgiving day in port the ADMIRAL CAPPS sailed in the afternoon of 23 November, bound for Mar- seille. Rough seas were encountered on this trip, but they were not sufficient to necessitate slowing down. The average speed was 19.9 knots which brought her into Marseille in the morn- ing of 2 December. The embarkation of 4604 passengers was completed in the evening of 3 December and preparations were made to get underway on the morning of the 4th. That was where things stopped though. A high Wind which the French have named miszral started blowing from the north and the pilot said that We would Wait until it died down before we tried getting out of the harbor. Such winds frequently blow for several days, but fortunately for the ADMIRAL CAPPS this one died down during the night and we sailed for Norfolk on the morning of the 5th, On this trip we thought We would fool the weather and take a southern route home. lt would be several miles longer but it was thought that the saving of time due to less rough weather would make up for the difference. We don't know what the weather would have been if we had taken the northern route but it certainly couldn't have been much worse than on the southern route. We slowed down so much that the average speed was a mere 16.6 knots.

Two days out of Norfolk orders were received for our next trip-a return to the Pacific. To the few west coast men left aboard it was good news but to the east coasters, who were in the majority, it was like being exiled to the salt mines of Siberia. i The ADMIRAL CAPPS arrived in Norfolk in the morning of I5 December by making its way through a beautiful but cold snow storm. It was a fitting start of the holiday for the crew. A small percentage rated Christmas leave, and a slightly larger percentage rated 48-hour liberties over Christmas. Those who stayed aboard had Christmas trees, mail, dinner and everyw thing but home and family. The ADMIRAL CAPPS arrived in Panama in the after- noon of 2 Ianuary. That was the night that all of the yeomen were either on liberty or shore patrol and the Marine Corps had to make up the plan of the day. It was much better to see Colon at night than to see her only in the daytime as had been the case when the ADMIRAL CAPPS was last there. The next night all of the yeomen stayed aboard -at least there were no crossed quills seen going down the gangway. In the Copa- cabana, however, one of our yeomen mounted the stage and entertained the crowd C752 from the ADMIRAL CAPPSQ for an hour with his accordion music while a large party of HN' Division cheered him wildly. What happened to our chief en- gineer that night is still a matter for conjecture.

It was in the afternoon of 4 Ianuary that we com- pleted our transit through the Canal and set our course for Pearl Harbor. It was nice to get into the calm Pacific again after almost Hve rough months in the Atlantic. We were enjoying the luxury of sailing with- out passengers and all hands took their share of the sun. We arrived in Pearl Har- bor I4 Ianuary, having aver- aged 19.7 knots for the trip. This was the first time that the crew of the ADMIRAL CAPPS had had a chance to get ashore in her three trips to Hawaii. They took advantage of it but they didn't have enough time to get a look at 'cbeautiful Hawaiiw. It was just one liberty for each section and then we were off again with a load of about zoo Iapanese- American troops who were going to lapan as occupa- tional troops. It was in the morning of 16 Ianuary that we set our course for Yoko- hama. We arrived there on 24 Ianuary having averaged IQ.I2 knots for the trip. The Pacific Ocean tried to make a showing of the Atlantic's weather on this trip-that's Why we were so slow. No one knew it but we entered another confusion ii' .2 . 1 .

The navigator got out his charts and found 131 up by Tokyo so we went mer- rily on our way - away, away, away from all the ships in the harbor, away from sight of any naval in- stallations, away from all indications of civilization, Iapanese artists sketching bomb damage away from everything. We anchored and waited. Finally an army motor launch was sighted headed toward us. They ap' proached, looked us over, and went on. That was all for that day. The next day we saw a couple of Iapanese fishing fleets tacking back and forth across the bay nearby but nothing of any boarding oflicers. Finally in the afternoon of the second day there came a call on the -radio 'cWhere are you -why didnit you anchor in berth 131?v We sent back a reply, "We are an- chored in berth 131, where are you PM We received the answer, "Coordinates of berth Baker-131 are -1-, ---. Proceed there immediately." The Navigator got out his anchorage charts and looked for the anchorage at the given coordinates but found nothing there. lt was too late to move that afternoon anyway so we waited till the next morning and moved in the fog, When the Captain and Navigator got to the Port Director's oflice for a conference, they found that our charts were more up to date t ' 1 as ,Rm-cw N as Q I Ir H NM , An open air market in Yokohama ta ie us into a pier V an The f ff, ff ts, an the Port clarts in the gfili' VVhen we pf ned. ln the afte tc proceed to Yol-1 a .other message, a tchored T vue tied up to pirty which bfok tl en ran off to fit That afterfioa: tie war had done cuite well fed tie elfort of the f "time-and-a-half" for their work. When no one would sign their papers for the extra pay they went on strike and refused to show up for work. When they were called on the P. A. system they refused to answer. When the Marines went to their com- partment and called for them no one knew them, no one had seen them, no one knew where they were, and no one expected ever to see them again. Filtering the mess line caught a few but more ingenious methods had to be devised to bring the entire lot to justice, Qtwo days in the brig on bread and waterj. After looking up the home town of one of the seamen, a Marine went to their compartment and called out, HI-Iey, I hear there,s a guy down here from Canton, Ohioln Immediately the culprit jumped up to meet someone from his home town but instead he met one of the "Sheriff,s,' deputies. Another seaman's nick- name became known to the Marines so one of them went to the compartment, stood behind a stanchion and yelled, "Hey, Mikeln Mike answered and was taken into custody. The even- ing of the day we arrived in San Francisco there were head- lines, "TWELVE IAILED ON S. F. TRANSPORTQ, and a glowing account of the whole affair. It even got nationwide coverage through the press agencies. The ADMIRAL CAPPS remained in San Francisco for 28 days during which time herwboilers were cleaned with wire brush for the first time. They averaged almost 9,000 steaming hours since the ship started operations while the Manual of Engineer- ing Instructions say that they should be cleaned every 2,000 hours at the very most. Most of the West Coasters were granted leave enough to visit their homes-which they hadn't seen for at least ten months. The East Coasters enjoyed their liberty in San Francisco as much as could be expected-more so than the 'West Coasters had enjoyed liberty in Norfolk. In the morning of 8 March the ADMIRAL CAPPS sailed The Golden Gate says Welcome back on her next voyage to Okinawa and return to San Francisco. We took the southern route in order to avoid the stormy North Pacihc weather. In the morning of 21 March we anchored in Buckner Bay and waited for our friends on the beach to or- ganize and send us some passengers. While we were still wait- ing the next day, the Chaplain arranged for the crew to go ashore and use the Navy's recreation area for a little relaxation and exercise - and also their "beer garden" to quaff a couple I - 3 Libcrtjf parij' of tans.

There was no souvenir hunting though. Souvenirs on Okinawa were still classed as booby traps and sucker bait. The loading of 4738 passengers was completed just after noon of 24 March and we were underway for San Francisco in less than an hour. The indications were that this would be our last trip so the Captain put the speed up as high as he dared and set his eye on a record crossing. Whether or not a record was set for the Okinawa-San Francisco run we don't know, but we did set a record for the ADMIRAL CAPPS. 21.01 knots was the average speed, including one night when we were slowed down by rough weather. The indications about this being our last trip were confirmed before we reached San Y ,sc .. A--sw-se-H- .f'.J,.gQ . - is ct., 7 3.5 , I .

The Californians who were able, rushed home to take one last look at their loved ones while the New Yorkers walked around with grins from ear to ear. We sailed as scheduled in the morning of 9 April at an agonizingly slow 16 knots, "in order to conserve fuelf' We ar- rived in Balboa in the morning of I7 April and moored to a pier there for two days to refuel, take on supplies, and have a look at the Pacific side of Panama and the Canal Zone. lf you were to ask us now, we would tell you that there is a dif- ference between the north and the south sides of the country but we d0n't know exactly what it is. The people are no dif- ferent. They all have something to sell and every sailor is their No. I prospect. We were the first ship through the canal in the morning of IQ April and made it through in record time. We entered the first lock at 0700 and departed from the last lock at 1230. If there weren't a speed limit in the canal, we could have done better. We let off the pilot on the Atlantic side and then set our course for New York. We arrived there in the morning of 24 April and after unloading the Army and civilian pas- sengers we set out on the task of decommissioning. .

The date of de- commissioning has been set as 8 May 1946, when the ADMIRAL CAPPS will be transformed into an Army transport to be operated by civilians. Although We called her a "pig iron bucket of rust", "The Mad Capps", or any of a dozen other names, we were all proud of her and enjoyed being on her. The gripes were many but the pleasures were more, and we all felt that life aboard her was - everything considered - pretty good. The ADMIRAL CAPPS has served the Navy and its Coast Guard crew well. Although we are all anxious to get to our new tasks-some as civilians and some as crews of Coast Guard ships or stations- We find that leaving her feels like parting company with an old friend. She will long be remembered by those who served and sailed aboard her. MWA ,.M..-Q,-f.X .ow A.-A. vm- Rand Om Shats 1 was corny but g O0 ,W MM., , x . A 1 W- K .T T '.
