Frfteen days of steaming and drills across
the Atlantic and on the morning of the nine-
teenth the pastel colored buildings of Algiers
stood before us and after fifteen days at sea
the thoughts of many men aboard the MURRAY
wereofasingular nature all that and mail too
Algiers first port of call captial of Algeria
situated on the North African coast line 450
miles east of Gibraltar Here was really inter-
esting liberty The various peoples French
Arab African the veiled Moslems the beau-
tiful Mosques and of course the Casbah---who
could ever forget the Casbah and those kids
those thieving begging kids Ask any one of the
frightened out of their wits tourists who squirm-
edthroughthe narrow winding menacing streets
of the Casbah brother what a place
' Flve enjoyable days in Algiers and just the
beginning of a wonderful cruise Next stop---
Taranto, situated in the instep of the Italian
Boot" one of the four mayor naval bases in
Italy It was here in 1941 tnat the British
planes from the aircraft carrier Illustr1ous"
flew over the Italian fleet apparently quite
secure in the harbor and broke the back of
the Italian sea power in just a few hours
Taranto afforded many of us a chance to
v1s1t the beautiful city of Bari and also the
Eternal City of Rome and the shutterbugs
went crazy A few of our "Pa1sans' visited
relatives that they would never had seen had
It not been for this V1S1t and for all of us Tar
anto proved to be a pleasant enjoyable visit
Toulon France our third port of call 18 I
the chief French naval port on the Meditteran 1
ean As was true of Taranto Toulon 18 known ,
for the part it has played in naval affairs for
the past two centuries It was from this port Q
that portions of the French fleet sailed to help
the Americans during the Revolutionary War t
Toulon IS best known as the scuttling grounds 1
of the main part of the French fleet during I
World War II It was here that a total of sixty l
French vessels were scuttled in the harbor to ,
prevent their falling 1nto the hands of the Ger 4
There was good liberty in Toulon Many i
of us took tours to the French Riviera including 5
Nice Cannes and Juan Les Pin There was i
also a fishing party to the beautiful French Alps R
where veryone had a terrific t1me including
the fish none of which were caught'
Most everyone had a good time in Toulon
everyone that 1S who managed to make it from
the ship to the gate about three miles away
Coming back wasn't so bad at least by that
time we d1dn't feel it as much
port of call We had a couple beach parties
and the beer flowed like water and after the
b ach parties when the beer cans floated in the
water 1twasn't safe to walk around at the beach
party w1th anything more than a bathing suit on
sure as hell you' d wind up swimming clothes
and all This went for ALL HANDS
We did a lot of swimming here but the b st
swims of all were yet to come when the ship
was stopped underway to Gibraltar and swlm
call was sounded Swim call 1n the cool blue
Mediterranean what a life

On to Spain
Gibraltar, the "Rock" had very little to offer
other than the usual sightseeing, but the crew
of the "Murray"q believing the adage, seek and
ye shall findg lost no time in finding the town
of Algiciras, and that was really fine liberty ,
This was to be our lastport of call in the
Mediterraneang for many it was the best of all.
Now the "Murray", in Company with the "John
R. Pierce" was to leave the Med and make a
cruise that very few ships were fortunate en-
ough to make. It certainly was a cruise to be
envied, evidence of this is a copy of thc dis-
patch received from a sister ship, the USS
Bache. . . We don't envy your northern tour .
When you come back you'll all be poor, while
we in the sunny Med will be saving our money
frugally. Hope you enjoy the Swedes and
Dutch but we don't envy you, no not much!
And so farewell Mediterranean, Hello North-

Plymouth, England was a port that many of us
can't help remembering and will never forget.
The English treated us royally, many of the crew
being invited to their homes as guests for the day .
There were tours to the beautiful English country-
sideg dances intown, etc. The people were cordial
and hospitable, all making for a fine liberty.
Located 230 miles southwest of London, Ply-
mouth was the last stop for the Pilgrim Fathers
on their voyage to America. It was from Ply-
mouth that Sir Francis Drake set out on his voy-
age around the world. For us it was the first
stop of a good will tour that was to take us to most
of the Northern European countries on the Atlantic .
Here in Plymouth we were inspected by the new
Division Commander, the ship and crew looked
sharp, as well it should for we were to be one of
the most looked at American warships in this part
of the world.
The Sea Around Us
Q, Xkkcd Xt.
Now here was a place we just d1dn't have enough time
No sooner did we anchor than there were fishing boats
loaded down with sight seers waving and yelling hello at
us as they circled the ship This looked like a sign of
a good time and that's exactly what it was Practically
all entertainment cinemas andtransportation were free
The people were hospitable as they could be all the
people that is.

Douglas is primarily a resort town with vacationers
coming from all parts of England, Ireland, and Scot-
land. Everyone was in a holiday mood and it didn't take
long for the crew to join in the festivities...For two
hectic days we all had a swell time and there were very
few among us who weren't sorry to leave this bright little
Coney Island ?

First thought upon entering Londonderry, "doesn't the
sun ever shine here?" It didn't. A raincoat was part Of
the uniform of the day, it got so you could tell time by
the rain. But the weather failed to dampen our spiI'itS
and off we went to the Capitol, Corinthian, and Claredon,
and brother if you couldn't do that screwy quick-step you
just stood around and watched. . . or else you took y0l11'
chances of getting trampled on by the mob.
We spent two weeks up here, two weeks of rain, danc-
ing, rain, drills, and of course more rain. ViSit01'S
came aboard and looked the ship over, it was the first
of the visiting hours but it didn't take us long to get ac-
customed to a 'few hundred people swarming all over the

And We Were
Bremerhaven, Germany was what you might call a resting place. Rest a few minutes be-
fore you picked up your paint brush again. The Skipper gave us the word. . . PAINT SHIP ,
and paint ship we did. . . from stem to stern. Order of the day, if it doesn't move. . .paint it.
In the short time of three working days we had our ship looking as sharp as it could be, even
the snipes were cleaning their topside brass.
It wasn't all work though. We had good liberty in Bremerhaven. We met the Germans and
we liked them, but it was just a taste of what we had in store for us in Bremen.
And so on the morning of the sixth we left Bremerhaven and headed up the Weser River to
the city of Bremen. Our honor guard looked especially sharp as we received on board the
president of the Bremen senate and other representatives of the city of Bremen. Our ViSi11 to
this, the second largest seaport in Germany was a news making event due to the fact that we
were the first American warship to visit the port of Breman since 1939. As we entered the
docking area there were newsreel photographers on hand to record and report the event. N0t
long after we tied up there were the usual onlookers lining the dock usual except that here
the people crowded the area all through the day to see and to come on board the Shlps Once
again we threw the ship open to visitors and they wasted little time in taking advantage Of the
invitation Literally hundreds upon hundreds of Bremenites gave our ship the once over and
we were delighted to have them on board as we were delighted at the opportunity to entertaln
a group of orphans who paid us a visit
The people of Bremen wasted no time in making us feel welcome in their beautiful CIW
Even before our arrival arrangements had been made for us to v1s1t points of interest and It
n't take long before we were swarming all over the city taking in the sights Even the
weather was good to us for a welcome change and once more the shutter bugs went on the
mpage There was always something going on while we were in Bremen The Germans S8
to it that we were never at a loss for something to do Dances Jazz concerts, sightsee H2
rs and an especial highlight was the beer stag given in honor of our visit by the Deutsv
Maritime Association We cou1dn't have been made to feel more welcome
ere was only one complaint too much liberty ind not enough money and I know Of U
better way to say that liberty here was excellent Our visit to Bremen was a highly success
one and we were sorry to leave but it was back to Pnglfmd md for us a weekend by fha 5

back that is. You may ask why, or how! We11,,
we on the MURRAY are a very determined bunch,
and so when someone comes up to us and said,,l
"Why don't you go to Hell" we answered as any
whole blooded American male would, "Why don't,
you go to Hell yourself. So what did we do? Wel
all went to Hell!!! Hell is a small town about 20a
miles away from Trondheim and it was a stop on
a sight seeing tour many of us went on.
The Rowing Club of Trondheim sponsored two
nights of dancing and fun at the "SKANSEN". The'
ship'sJazz Combo furnished the music on the out-
side, and a wonderful time was had by all. Then.
once again we are on our way, and this time to the
misty, mystic Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland.

to enjoy this beautiful, mysterious, fun-loving City,

Sadly we said good bye to France and Paris and

The fabulous cruise of the USS MURRAY in 1954 produced an interesting array
of facts and figures. It's a fact that at least two of us got engaged, one married
and many more fell in love, some two or three times. We steamed a total of
