Royal The " FORREST ROYAL " is named for a distinguished Naval Officer, the late Rear Admiral Forrest Betto n Royal, United States Navy. Admiral Royal was born in New York City on February 10, 1893. He was appointed to the United States Naval Academy in 1911 and graduated in June 1915. During his naval career, Admiral Royal carried out all the duties that fall to a line officer of the Navy. He served on battleships, cruisers, and destroyers, including service afloat during World War I. He had numerous tours of duty ashore including tours in the Office of Naval Operations and the Bureau of Ordnance. He also completed a post graduate course of study in ordnance and attended the Naval War College. Just prior to World War II, he was a member of the Naval Mission to Brazil. At the beginning of the late war. Admiral Royal, then a Captain, was in command of the USS MILWAUKEE. He was appointed a Rear Admiral in March 1944 and ordered to the Pacific as Group Commander of Amphibious Forces. For his exceptionally meritorious services in this capacity in the assault operations against the enemy, the Japanese held islands of Leyte and Luzon in the Philippines, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. He was awarded a Gold Star in Lieu of a second Distinguished Service Medal for his exceptionally meritorious services in the amphibious operations against the Japanese in the Central and Southern Philippines, the Sulu Archipeligo and Borneo. In addition to the Distinguished Service Medal, Admiral Royal wore the Following awards: The Victory Medal with Atlantic Fleet Clasp for WWI. American Defense Service Medal Asiatic -Pacific Area Campaign Medal and a Brazilian decoration. Admiral Royal died in the Asiatic Area on June 18, 1945. HISTORY OF THE USS FORREST ROYAL (DD872) The USS FORREST ROYAL a destroyer of the GEARING class, with a displacement of 2250 tons, was the largest of her type to be built by the Bethlehem Steel Corporation, Staten Island, New York. Her Keel was laid on June 8, 1945, she was launched on January 17, 1946 and commissioned on June 29, 194G. After being fitted out she departed New York on 15 August 1946 for her shakedown cruise at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. She operated in this area until 18 March 1947. She departed New York 21 April 1947 for Pensacola, Florida, where she operated for almost all the next three years as escort and plane guard ship for aircraft carriers. During these three years she departed Pensacola for several short periods. She visited various Carib- bean and Gulf Coast ports including Havana, Cuba, Mobile, Alabama, Corpus Christi, Texas, Key West, Florida, Galveston, Texas, Panama City, Florida and Beaumont Texas. On 23 March 1950, the ROYAL concluded her duty at Pensacola and proceeded to Portsmouth, Virginia, for overhaul which ended on 16 August. Like so many of her sister ships, the ROYAL saw action during the Korean police action. She reported for duty in the Far East on 28 October 1950. Her missions ranged from minesweeping operations at Chinnampo and shore bombardment, (firing some 7500 rounds of main battery ammunition), on the East Coast of Korea to the epic evac- uation of UN troops from Hungnan in December 1950. She returned to Newport in July 1951 after having been deployed eight months. For the next three years she conducted routine operations including cruises to Northern Europe, the Mediterranean and U.S. ports. In 1955 she made a 40,000 mile cruise around the world. On 14 September 1956 the ROYAL was deployed to the SIXTH Fleet, almost 7 months and about 4S000 miles later she returned to Newport, during the cruise she crossed the equator four times and operated as a unit of both the SIXTH Fleet and the Middle East Force. On 11 July 195S she departed Newport for the Mediterranean area during the " Lebanon crisis. " After making stops at Annapolis, Norfolk, Morehead City , N.C., San Juan, Gibraltar and Naples she arrived in Beirut, Lebanon on the 20th of August. A few days later the crisis in Formosa commenced. She departed Beirut in company with the carrier Essex on 26 August, Destination Formosa. The ROYAL arrived in Subic Bay on 12 September. After a short period of operations in the Formosa Straits she left for Newport. She arrived home on 19 November 1958, making the trip around the Cape, stopping for short stays at Singapore, Columbo, Capetown, Rio De Janeiro. During the winter of 1958 and the spring of 1959 the ROYAL operated as part of the ready ASW Task Force in the Atlantic. THE CAPTAIN OF THE USS FORREST ROYAL (DD-872) Commander John J. Creamer, U. S. Navy, Naval Academy, Class of 1944, was appointed midshipman for the Fourth Naval District, Massachusetts and received his commission in June 1943. An experienced destroyer officer, Commander Creamer was first ordered to the USS HOEL (DD553) which saw action with the Pacific Fleet. On 25 October 1944 he be- came eligible for the Purple Heart when the HOEL was sunk by gunfire while making a daylight torpedo attack during the 2nd battle of the Philippines. In July 1945, after re- turning to the States, he put the USS PARKS (DD8S4) in commission at Orange, Texas. The PARKS operated with Task Force 77 in China and Japan until October 1946. From January 1947 to November 1949 Commander Creamer served with the USS POWER (DD-S39) which served in the Atlantic and Mediterranean area. After serving the NROTC unit at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York he attended the Naval Post Graduate School at Monterey, California where he studied Aerological Engineering. A tour of duty with the USS MIDWAY (CVA-41) took him across the Arctic Circle during Operation Mainbrace in 1952. In August 1954 Commander Creamer was assigned to the Naval Air Station Quonset Point, Rhode Island where he served as Aerological Officer. More destroyer duty followed in 1956 when he reported aboard the USS BRISTOL (DD-857) and assumed the duties of Executive Officer. Commander Creamer married the former Gloria G. Atkinson of San Francisco on 27 May 1947. They now reside in Newport and are the parents of two daughters, Cathy and Carol. 4 t MMMr Executive Officer LCDR. A. C. Bessette xm m LCDR Alfred C. Bessette was graduated from the Naval Academy in June 1944. His fi rst tours of duty were aboard LSM ' s as Executive and then Command- ing Officer. His next tour was aboard the John W. WEEKS (DD-701) where he was first lieutenant and Gunnery Officer. This was followed by a tour of duty as instructor in the NROTC section of Cornell University. He returned to sea duty as navigator aboard the Icebreaker USS ATKA. From the ATKA he returned to the Naval Academy to serve as In- structor in the Marine Engineering Department. He reported aboard the ROYAL in June 1957. He now has orders to report to the Naval Attache in the Dominican Republic for a tour of duty. ) i " 2 ._ LT. T. H.

This bill was an agreement between the United States and Canada for the construction of the necessary locks and channels to enable deep draft ship to transit all five of the Great Lakes. Construction was started in late 1954. The task ahead was fantastic. Now called the worlds greatest engineering feat, it involved excavating millions of tons of dirt and rocks, removing whole islands, relocation of towns, constructing new channels and locks. After spending nearly one billion dollars the St. Lawrence Seaway was unofficially opened to deep draft traffic in early 1959. The FORREST ROYAL was one of the ships selected for participation in the formal opening of the seaway by the President and Queen Elizabeth II. The presence of Cana- dian, British and U. S. Warships in the inland waters of the Seaway and the Great Lakes was a historic event made possible by a special arrangement worked out between the U. S. and Canadian Governments. The arrangement, limited to this operation, waived the conditions of the Rush-Bagot Agreement of 1817. The ROYAL considered it an honor to participate in this great event. The opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway to large ocean going vessels introduced the navy ships to an entirely new coast line on the vast inland seas. The Great Lakes cover an area of some 95,000 square miles with a coast line of 8300 miles. On 2 June 1959 the ROYAL got underway from Newport to pick up midshipmen at Annapolis and then proceed to the " INLAND SEAS, " to show thousands of people the very best of the Navy. The cruise was both a training cruise for several hunderd midshipmen and a cruise to give the people of the midwest a first-hand look at the Navy. For years the friendly people had been sending their sons to the Navy but until this cruise the Navy had never sailed to the midwest to let the Fathers and Mothers see the kind of lives their sons lead in the Navy. What was the trip like to the ROYAL? Let ' s take a look. The crowd standing along the lock on the Seaway Canal watched the small battle grey warship heading toward them, and moved closer for a better look. They waved, cheered, took pictures. As we moved steadily up the St. Lawrence Seaway, through channels and canals and lock after lock, sometimes with just inches to spare, finally emerging into the open waters of the Great Lakes, the crowds gave the same reception all along the route. Cars lined up along the banks. Girls waved, people chatted with us, sometimes giving us coffee during the long nights. Sleep was sporadic, sea detail was set for long hours but everyone kept their good humor and high spirits. It was a cruise for all hands to remember for years to come, tough and exciting. 1 i UNDERWAY NEWPORT TO ANNAPOLIS Underway, shift colors, destination GREAT LAKES.

The real beginning of the " INLAND SEAS " cruise was the ROYAL ' S arrival at the first locks above Montreal. In order for the ROYAL to transit the five Great Lakes she had to " climb " the Seaway by a series of 16 huge locks. These locks were the steps of the Seaway stairway, raising her anywhere from 2 to 50 feet each time for a total raise to 602 feet above sea level. The locks of the Seaway were quite different sailing than the ROYAL was used to. Differing from the Panama Canal in that the ship had to be maneuvered into each lock under power, however, as usual the ROYAL came through with laurels. We arrived in MONTREAL ready and eager to tackle the first two locks, St. Lambert and St. Catherine, there was liberty waiting on the other side. Here we learned the first requirement necessary for sailing the " INLAND SEAS, " PATIENCE. We dropped anchor and waited for our call to enter the first lock. Three days later it came and we were underway to become LOCKM ASTERS. Entering the first lock, a new phase in the ROYALS history. 1 Inside the lock, lines over, waiti ng for our first " raise, " 1!! ♦ t THE REVIEW y y After completing the transit of the first two locks, the ROYAL anchored in Lake St. Louis for the greatest event of the cruise --review by President Eisenhower and Her Majesty the Queen of England. Many days of planning and practice had prepared her for this day. A group of about 15 ships, 8 American and 7 Canadian, lined up to take the review. They were the best of the fleets, smart, shipshape and ready. With all ships at full dress and manning the rails we awaited the arrival of HMY BRITANNIA. To the thunderous roll of a 15 ship 21-gun salute she arrived. We of the ROYAL will long remember the Yacht passing close aboard to port as the ROYAL ' S ere sounded off with HIP -HIP -HOORAY, HIP -HIP -HOORAY , HIP -HIP -HOORAY. AS J 1 " QUEEN ' S REVIEW HMY Britannia President Eisenhower, Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Phillip Her Majesty ' s escorting DE The Pavilion built for the dedication of the Seaway, on " " " HII1II3I, U]]] X H —————— After the review, the ROYAL got underway for the first city of the four to be visited, DETROIT, MICH. But first there were thirteen locks to transit. She cleared the Upper and Lower Beauharnois, Iroquois, Snell and Eisen- hower in the new section of the Seaway. The ROYAL passed through the scenic Thousand Island section of New York where it appeared she was travelling in a residential area rather than an International ship channel. We were within feet of houses and backyards. After clearing the Thousand Island area we crossed Lake Ontario and anchored with other Navy and Merchant ships off Port Weller waiting for a radio call to go through the Welland Canal, which bypasses the Niagara Falls. i Sfc» WELCftND CANAL jaf-iL After anchoring, we impatiently awaited our call to enter the Welland Canal, the last hurdle before liberty. Approximately four days later we received it. The ROYAL entered the Canal with great enthusiasm and spirit. Fourteen hours and eight locks later they were slightly dampened. It was still a great experience for the ROYAL and the hundreds of people who watched the first warships transit the canal. 22 flip WELLAND CANAL v 4 First Aid Promotes Good Will By JIM MVHERS News-Tribune Staff Writer ABOARD THE USS FOR- REST ROYAL— The navy has won a bit of international good will. At least one Canadian six yeai old girl is thankful the ship was at the right place at the right time. The girl suffered a deep gash in her left knee while she was watching the Royal tie up at the entrance to the Welland canal She had fallen against tile tail- light of a parked car. She was taken aboard the Royal on orders of Cmdr. John J. Creamer, and given first aid. Treating her was Arthur (Doc) Hagopian, chief pharma- cists mate. He bandaged the two inch long cut, which went as deep as the bone, and put a splint on her leg to prevent fur- ther injury. The girl then was taken to a hospital for surgical treatment. The sequel to the above story is shown in pictures. Two months later, on the downward trip through the Welland Canal, the ROYAL was very surprised when the parents of the little girl greeted us with a gift of two baskets of peaches for the crew. It was a most thoughtful gesture that required long hours of waiting at the lock, due to the ship ' s uncertain schedule. The kindness of this act will be long remembered and the peaches were enjoyed by all. J 4 Le L A U The city that put the world on wheels is an exciting place to visit. Fifth largest city in the U. S., oldest continuous settlement in the Midwest. This was the ROYAL ' S first liberty port and where we started our job of showing the Navy to the people. However, the people had different plans--to show the Navy the Midwest. Vs ' e had our first taste of the wonderful hospitality ex- tended throughout the cruise. A day ' s schedule would read like this: tours to all points of interest, free ball games, free movies, dances, beer parties, cocktail parties and an abundance of girls for the single sailors. In spite of these obstacles we managed to accomplish the job and thousands of visitors boarded the ROYAL for their first look at the Navy. We were well prepared but the initial surge was quite a shock, a line over a block long just waiting to board. v ' e quickly folded our pamphlets and thoroughly enjoyed the job of " big time host.

Roan, and the 2,000 who visited the USS Forrest Royal Friday, the first day ot a four-day stay here of the two Navy destroyers. Meanwhile Port Huron extended the same " red car- pet " treatment to Navy personnel at cocktails and dinner dance tor officers in Hotel Harrington Friday evening and a midshipmen ' s dance in the YMCA The " red carpet " became somewhat frayed at the enlisted men ' s dance when too few girls showed up at the American Legion for the occasion. But Stanley Stenek, City Recreation Director, said today that the enlisted men ' s dance was finally a success when sufficient girls were found for the men — many of them f inding their own. Today ' s activities include a fishing party from 7 a.m. to noon, a party at the Blue Water Sportsman ' s association clubhouse at 3:30 p.m., a Softball Same between men of the Royal and a City team at 7 p.m. ant) a square dance jamboree in Pine Grove park at the sam time. PORT HURON was the third city visited by the ROYAL. During the four days spent in Port Huron approximately 10,000 visitors boarded the ROYAL. Meanwhile, the crew visited the city- -they discovered the same wonderful hospitality they had at other cities. Fishing, dancing, beer parties and swimming were enjoyed by all. 7 7 gbvebuut .! htm£ -r- " ' The girls left behind. TlJ.

We stowed our displays, packed the few pamphlets left and headed across Lake Erie to wait our turn at the Welland Canal, the bottleneck on our upward trip. It had not changed. Again we waited four days for " The Guard Gate " to call. We finally entered Lock S for the downhill jaunt. Due to the erratic schedule of the ROYAL and the planned leave schedule for the Midshipmen, they were flown out by an air lift from Port Colbourne. We ' ve enjoyed having you aboard.

With a lot of hard work and a job well done behind us we were happy to be heading home but at the same time a little sad to be leaving a good time and a lot of wonderful people. We had entered the upbound traffic strangers to the ways of the fresh water sailors, to the locks and crowded channels, the ROYAL had adapted herself quickly though. Now after 32 locks and about 4000 miles of Inland Seas sailing we were com- pletely qualified for the Order of the Great Lakers and Lockmasters.
