USS TELFAIR APA-210 Named for Telfair County, Georgia the ship was commiss- ioned in San Francisco on October 3l, I9-44. From March 26 to April 26, l945, TELFAIR played an active part in the invasion of Okinawa. She crossed the Pacific four times before landing units of the Occupation Forces at Kure, Japan in October I945. She was decommissioned in January l947 after completing 'Magic Carpet' duty, returning troops to the U.S, The Korean War brought TELFAIR back to active duty in Sept- ember I95O. She deployed to the Far East six times over the next eight years, taking part in exercises with Seventh Fleet and SEATO units. During her fifth deployment in l954, she hur- ried to Viet-nam to aid refugees caught in the 'French-lndo- China War'. Altogether she carried 6,400 passengers to safety in Saigon. TELFAIR was called to serve again in November I96l after a three-year retirement. She was re-commissioned for the third time in San Francisco and shortly after sailed for her new home- port, Norfolk, Virginia. ln June l96L1, TELFAIR completed her second five-month deployment with the Sixth Fleet Ready Amphibious Force in the Mediterranean. In October l964, TELFAIR again de- ployed to Europe while participating in Operation 'Steel Pike', returning to Norfolk in November l964. After four months of type training, a three month over haul at PHILADELPHIA NAVAL SHIPYARD commenced in April l965. On I6 July, TELFAIR left the shipyard in Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia for Norfolk, Virginia. On 27 July, TELFAIR departed for Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for three weeks of refresher training. The TELFAIR returned to Norfolk on 20 August where she remained in port until 7 Sept- ember. From 7 to I7 September, TELFAIR participated in amphi- bious operations and training at Little Creek, Virginia. On 30 September Captain Aubrey R. SEILERwas relieved as Commanding Officer by Captain Davis E. BUNTING. On 4 October, TELFAIR left Norfolk for Morehead City where she embarked Marine personnel and their equipment. On 5 October, TELFAlRdeparted the continental United States for a tour of duty with the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean. On 30 March l966,TELFAlR completed its six month deployment when it returned to its homeport of Norfolk, Virginia CAPTAIN DAVIS E. BUNTING COMIVIANDING OFFICER MEMORANDUM From: Commanding Officer To: All Hands I This Cruise Book highlights the pleasurable o t' f p r ion o our six month Mediterranean cruise. It generally omits, how- ever, the long hours of invividual work involved in any deployment. 2 Even tthough we had relatively little timeto prepare for our extended cruise, TELEAIR acquitted herself admirably O . . . ur professional competence is documented by the rare achievement of garnering four of the five De artmental 'E' P awards. While I naturally look with pride onthese honors, I am more proud of the practical reputation the ship attained with Commodore E. G. MILLER. COMPHIBRON TEN, as lead ship in matters of seamanship, tactical maneuvering, engineering, reliability, communications and administration. . 3 Additionally, you proved yourselves gentlemen as well as sailors. TELEAIR sailors and marines achieved the lowest incident rate per number of liberties of the five deployed ships. - 4 It goes without saying that the record you have compiled must be attributed to the crew as a whole. The sucess has been too widespread for any individual credit. 5 ,WELL DONE!! D.E. BUNTING DEPARTMENT HEADS SUPPLY OPERATIONS EXECUTIVE OFFICER LT, AI-BAUGI-I L.T, THOMPSON LT. SHEIIVIAN I.T.

N mx xxx T ELFAIR TR VEL LOG TELFAIR left the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in July of l965 after her first maior yard period since being recommissioned in l96l. Recognizing the staleness that inevitably crops up following several months of inactivity COMPHIBLANT assigned us to refresher training atGuantanamoBayinthe middle of August. Several weeks of intensive training under the auspices of Fleet training Group, GTMO, broken only by a weekend iaunt to Montego Bay Jamaica, renewed seagoing skills for the old hands, and introduced new men to the operational routine. While at GTMO, we learned that we were destined to make MED Cruise 3-65 along with units of PHIBRON 8 and IO. Many felt that we could not be sufficiently prepared for an extended deployment by the proiected departure date of October 4. We were already scheduled for two weeks amphibious refresher training at Little Creek during September, and upon completion of that, would have slightly over two weeks to accomplish the myriad details that accompany an amphibious cruise. Dutifully the officers and men of TELFAIR set themselves to the task and succeeded with flying colors. We were ready in all respects for sea on the appointed date. A maior event occurred on TELFAIR a few days before our departure. Much- respected Captain AUBREY SEILER was relieved as skipper by Captain DAVIS BUNTING who came to us from a long career in Submarines. We wished Captain SEILER well in his new position on the COMNAVAIRLANT STAFF and eagerly looked forward to the iob of assisting Captain BUNTING regain his sea legs in a deep draft ship October 4 dawned clear and cold and we set out for the short trip to Morehead City, North Carolina, to load our Marine contingent and their equipment. For many, it was not until we saw the endless lines of green-clad fighting men waiting to board did we realize the significance and breadth of our undertaking. i Some four hours later, we had two companies of Marines and enough equipment and supplies to keep them battle ready for some time. lt was our good fortune to have as CO of Troops, Captain JOSEPH HOAR, whose cooperation and spirit was instrumental in maintaining the close-knit relationship between Sailors and Marines that characterized the entire cruise. The Atlantic crossing took us two full weeks. We occupied our time with firing exercises, battle problems, and steaming drills. It soon became apparent that Commodore E.G. MILLER was going to demand the highest performances in tight ship-handling. Errant ships were frequently blasted over the radlo.nets for sloppy performance. It seemed to us on the bridge that TELFAIR received fewer calls than other ships but some of the mistakes we did make were really beauts. On the morning of October, T8 simultaneous sightings of the Spqnish and .North African coasts generated excitement throughout the ship. The anticipated view of the fabled Rock of Gibralter never did materialize because of very low visibility, but a secondary thrill was provided by the presence of several Soviet Bloc Re- connaissance Ships who appeared to be waiting our arrival. Once the straits were cleared, we came under the operational control of COM- SIXTHFLT. Our orders directed us to proceed to Almeria, Spain for the turnover from PHIBRON 4. On October 21 we became part of Task Force 61, the Amphi- bious ready force in the Mediterranean. Two turnaway landings at Almeria gave us a test of our operational tasks to come, and offered the initial chance to work together with the other elements of the Squadron on the mechanics of a larger scale waterborne landing. Any traces of envy that existed as we watched the departing Squadron sail westward were dispelled as we ourselves headed for Marseille, France. The weather could not have been more unpleasant as we arrived at Frances Largest Sea Port. Nonetheless, the sight of the historic old city perched on the high hills that fringed the bay was awe inspiring to those visiting for the first time. The old Cathedral, Notre Dame De La Garde, dedicated to seafarers, dom- inated the metropolitan skyline. We were initially upset that we had been assigned an achorage well outside the breakwater, but upon our first visit ashore and seeing the curious crowds that thronged fleet landing we were glad to have a haven to return to aboard ship. Marseille offered something for everyone. Many took advantage of the tours offered to the ancient cities of Arles and Aix. Others spent time shopping and touring Marseille itself. Another large group found the numerous waterfront cafes to be an endless source of fascination. The week in Marseille passed quickly and TELFAIR was soon on her way to AranciBay, Sardina for our first complete landing exercise. During the six days there, no one was permitted ashore but we did enioy the. temporary absence of the Marines and the chance to perform routine in-port maintenance. lAVAeI:eft Aranci Bay on November and followed a course that took us to Valletta, a a. The traveling benefits of the Navy were quite evident at this time Malta is one place that few tourists ever get to although it is a regular port of call for both U S and British Naval Ships Here St Paul was shipwrecked on his way to Rome here the crusadlng Ixnights of St John settled and developed a prosperous colony for England and here because of its strategically crucial position In WWII more bombs fell per square foot than any other place in the world The Maltese people Sailors and Marines gave them ample opportunity to display these qualities A nother well run tour program included visits to the Old Cathedral the Catacombs at Rabat and the prehistoric temple ruins Night life was varied and lively The Maltese were quite easy to make friends with and many of us were invited into homes for meals and visits The men of TF 61 engaged in several worthwhile prolects including carpentry and masonry at an orphanage and donations to charitable organizations. are noted for their courage, warmth, and business acumen: The arrival of 3000 A combined Marine-Navy rifle team won the Cassady Cup in competition with a Royal Army team. We left Malta with regret and turned northward to Naples where we had two weeks tender availability awaiting us. Sailing along the East Coast of Sicily pro- vided us with a spectacular view of Mt. Etna, already capped with snow. We then entered the narrow straits of Messina, known in Mythology as the place Hercules swam across in a storm and also as the locale of the sirens who lured mariners to their death on the rocky coast. Evidently our navigator did not hear the temp- ting refrain and we were soon well through. The spectacular bay of Naples is a stirring sight, even to the salts who have been there previously. The gentle sweep from Sorrento to Pozzuoli has been writ- ten about, sung about, and photographed so much that nearly everyone had a mind's image of the area but actually seeing it for oneself was an experience to be remembered. The city of Naples is a treasure-trove of art and beautiful struc- tures. The trick is to enioy these places while being harrassed by the countless hucksters whose desire is to sell you anything and everything at the highest pos- sible price. The tour group, which by now had ielled into a tightly-knit semi-professional band of camera-snappers, found much to interest them. Pompeii, Vesuvius, the Islands of Capri and Ischia and the museums of Naples offered fertile ground tothe Yashica, Leica, and Polaroid set.The shops of Naples were well-stocked, attractively displayed and possessed one of the best looking shop girls to be seen anywhere. Many of us spent much time and Iire frequenting them. For Captain BUNTINQ it was a return to his most recent duty station and it turned out to be a grati- fying one as the TELFAIR basketball team edged the IOCGI SUBFLOT team 'n an overtime contest. , mm,-1 From Naples we had several days at sea and then ioined with some Italian Army forces to conduct a landing operation at Porto Scudo, on the southwest tip of Sardinia, the primary diversion in another week of waiting for the Marines to return was watching the low-level attack planes strafe the beach area, both by day and night. Genoa, Italy hosted us from December 20 through January 3. We found Genoa to be totally unlike Naples. Businesslike, efficient, lacking the overwhelming and undesireable element, the city was an acceptable home away from home although all would have preferred to be elsewhere for Christmas and New Years. Med- moored to the Municipal pier, TELFAlR's stern was practically in downtown Genoa and large crowds of curious people appeared daily, sometimes giving us the im- pression that we were on exhibit. The fan-tail proved a splendid place for the girl-watchers on the ship. Genoa sits on the southern end of the Italian Riviera. Even though it was not beach season, the resort towns in the area were bustling. Among the favorites were Portofino, where a coke costs a dollar, and Nervi. Some of the more ad- venturesome took leave and headed for the hills of Austria and Germany for ski- ing and other forms of the good life. New Year's eve in Genoa may be the most dangerous in existence. It is an old custom to throw out the window, no matter what floor you live on, any household item no longer needed lranging from flower pots to bathtubsl, without any warning to pedestrians in the streets below. Several sailors swore they would never touch another drop of grog after nearly being beaned by chamber pots. We ushered in T966 withaNATOsponsoredlanding exercise in Corsica. Two French ships, the LST "ODET" and the LPH "ARROMANCHES" participated in the training. Visits were exchanged by men of all ships and several beach parties livened the spirits of all hands. The squadron split up after Corsica and half of the units went to Livorno, Italy, while the GRANT COUNTY, FORT SNELLING, and TELFAIR went to La Spezia, some 90 miles south of Genoa. La Spezia is a commercial city most noted for the large Italian Naval Base located there. lt is not highly rated as a liberty port by experienced liberty hounds, but after nearly a solid month of beach time the relaxation was welcome. La Spezia was near enough to a small ski resort for some of us to take advantage of that. While we were at La Spezia, FORT SNELLING was .called to ioin other units of the SIXTH FLEET engaged in the search for the missing Nuclear device near Palomares, and would not steam with the formation anymore during the cruise. "ARRlVERDERCl" was said to Italy and Task Force 6l began, we thought the fi,-Sf leg home, with a liberty visit to Palma on the Spanish Island of Mallbrca. We found Palma sunny, still a little chilly for beach-going, and very touristy. The first wave on the beach also found out that Palma is a favorite of the Scandinavian tourist, including many tall blond Nordic queens. Palma was a shoppers paradise with the best bargains being in leather goods and straw products. I We left the beautiful spot of Palma in a state of great excitement. We were bound for Barcelona, reputedly the finest liberty port in Europe. To our dissappointment we were allocated an anchorage several miles from fleet landing and had to watch two other ships go inside the breakwater to moor alongside the pier. We overcame the obstacle presented by distance however and very shortly had made our presence well known in downtown Barcelona. Everyone had his own opinion of Barcelona, and each person found something different to do so it would be pre- sumptuous to attempt to make a blanket statement concerning our stay there. It should be sufficient to say that all hands would welcome the opportunity to return there someday. Barcelona was scheduled to be the last port of the cruise. People had attuned themselves to the idea of heading stateside after that and many really had a fling there in memory of afinecruise.Then, the world situation and Naval require- ments elsewhere, resulted in a decision at the highest levels to extend our de- ployment in the Med. for an indefinite period. Almost without exception, the news was received without welcome, but the morale ofthe crew and Marines did not dip noticeably in the ensuing weeks, much to the credit of the involved Gators. The first item on the new schedule was a landing exercise in Mazaron, Spain. TELFAIR compounded her woe, on arriving at the anchorage, when the Starboard anchor and l80 fathoms of chain decided to keep on going instead of being held in check by the brake. It was remarked at the time that this was one occasion that the Boatswain's mate on the forecastle did not have to tell his gang to step lively! With the help of an MSO and attached EOD personnel from the salvage operations at Palomares, we recovered the anchor the following day. Meanwhile the landing itself was conducted under very heavy surf conditions. The inshore undertow caused several boats to broach and even resulted in a mismatched co- llision between a Mike boat and a Papa boat. The Papa boat was given to the local farmers for firewood. lncidentally, the villagers of the area were of con- siderable assistance in retracting operations and the squadron thanked them with an appropriate gift. ,. , - H-W . ,iii We learned that the duration of our extension was one month and that our next port of call was Toulon, France. Toulon is not a city noted for beauty or art. It is the principal French Naval Port of the Mediterranean. Its saving grace was that it was within striking range of the well-known riviera cities of Cannes and Nice. All who could, made a trip to these garden spots. Facilities on the base at Toulon gave the athletes on TELFAIR a chance to flex their muscles. There was a certain amount of fraternization between French and American Sailors. In general, however, the weary fighting men were simply biding time until we were westbound. To our surprise, we entered the harbor at Palma for the second time in six weeks. I think there were many surprised acquaintances on the beach who could not be- lieve that we had fulfilled our good-bye promises to return someday. Several of the TELFAIR tigers elected to remain onboard ship during this visit. After a week in Palma, we made for Rota, Spain with renewed vigor, site of our turnover with PHIBRON 6. An overnight stay there, the excitement of seeing our relief, the USS SANDOVAL appear on the horizon, and we were finally and irrevocably homebound. The passage home was without incident although the weather got a little out of hand on occasion. The barren mud flats of the Carolina coast heralded our return to the USA. We off-loaded the marine contingent in record time and turned North for Norfolk, our home port. It was a cold wet day as we entered the Hampton Roads Channel but as we came alongside the pier the weather broke slightly and the married personnel were lining the rails to catch a glimpse of their wives and children. As the brow went over many of us reflected on the experience and knowledge gained over the past 6 months, and came to the conclusion that we had enriched our outlook by being a member of Med 3-65.
