It has been regretted for some time that,
because of Wartime restrictions, personally
owned cameras are not allowed on board, and
it has been impractical for the Photo Lab to
attempt to furnish all hands with pictures of
the places we have visited and of the many
interesting, thrilling, exciting and even hair-
raising experiences that we have had during
this, our Hrst year as an integral, fighting part
of our Fleet.
Considerable thought also has been given to
devising some means whereby the memories
of our many experiences, and our everyday
life aboard, might be preserved in a definite and
concrete form, because, regardless of how anx-
ious we are to get back to our families, and re-
gardless of how arduous, trying, and nerve
racking our experiences have been, when the
time comes for us to leave the Lunga Point, it is
confidently believed that our happiness in re-
turning to our families will be mingled with a
genuine feeling of regret in having to leave the
many-friends we have made on board, not to
mention the regret we shall feel in leaving the
Lunga Point, which has, after all, been our home
for many months now. We feel that we can
say without fear of contradiction that the Lzmga
Point and those who have served in her will have
a very warm spot in the heart of every Officer
and man who has been privileged to fight her,
and that place in' our hearts will ever increase
as the years roll by.
The Lunga Point has had a glorious record.
of which every officer and man can be -justly
proud, whether he was on a gun or in the
'4Black Gangng whether he was an Aviation
Mee or a Signalmang whether he was a uplane
pusher" or a Radioman, whether he was a
Steward's Mate or a Photographerfs Mate,
whether he was an Officer-of-the-Deck or a
C.W.O., whether he was a Carpenteras Mate
or a Quartermaster, whether he was a Yeornan
or a Baker. VVherever they served, and what-
ever their duties might have been, proper
execution of their duties was essential to our
success. The job assigned us simply could not
have been done without the loo per cent co-
operation of all hands. It is felt, however, that
we have closely approached that goal of per-
fection our Captain set for us on I4 May 1944.
Every officer and man should, therefore, re-
ceive due credit for the part he played, and for
that reason, the name, rank or rate, and home
address of every member of our Shipis Com-
pany will appear in this book, except for some
few who have been transferred without leaving

genesis. It is not a perfect book by any means.
There have been many obstacles, some of which
it was impossible to surmount, but it has been
our earnest endeavor. as nearly as possible, to
completely and faithfully chronicle our first

of preserving those friendships and memories
of the past year. we will have been well re-
warded for our efforts, because. as your Editor,
