10th ED CREISE
The Mediterranean is no strange place
to the WACCAIVIAW as this was her tenth
cruise. But to the Med, the WACCAMAW
was something entirely different. She was
the first jumbo oiler to operate with the
Sixth Fleet. To the countries bordering the
sea she must have looked strange indeed.
Here was a ship that should be very familiar,
in fact, they remembered her name. But she
was now longer, cleaner, sharper in ap-
pearance, and less cluttered, with the old
booms and masts replaced by smooth looking
Though WACCAIVIAW was no stranger
to the Med,her crew,for the most part, were
very inexperienced. This would not last
however for the WAC'S work was cut out
for her and she turned-to with a vigor and
determination that surprised even the "old
The ships and days flew by, the score
board climbed and WACCAIVIAW steamed
back and forth to all corners of the Medi-
terranean. She took on all comers, Car-
riers, Cruisers, Cans, Ammo ships, Reef-
ers, other Oilers and, would you believe,
a Submarine or two!
As the days went by the crew became
more and more efficient and the black oil
flowed faster and faster til a total of
thirty two million gallons had been pumped
to the thirsty ships of the Sixth Fleet.
After steaming 20,000 miles visiting
places such as Suda Bay, Crete, Istanbul,
Turkey, Rapallo, Italy, Palermo and Argos-
tolli, Sicily, Rhodes, Athens, Greece, Val-
encia, Spain, Gibraltar and, of course,
Naples, Italy, WACCAlVIAW'S cruise was
ended and she returned to Norfolk, Virginia.
She returned a bit tired and with a few
aches and pains but she'd proved her point
and done her job well. Watch out Sixth
Fleet, we're coming back for another round

WACCAMAW, named for a NorthCaro-
lina river, was built by the Sun Ship
Building and Dry Dock Company at Chester,
Pennsylvania, with a length of 553 feet, a
beam of 75 feet and a full load displacement
of 25,000 tons. Her keel was laid 28 April
1945g she was launched 30 March 1946,was
transferred by the Maritime Commission to
the Navy and placed in commission 25 June
By late 1951, WACCAMAW had com-
pleted three tours of duty with the Sixth
Fleet in the Mediterranean as well as one
tour with the Second Fleet in theCaribbean.
After shipyard overhaul in Boston in
1952, WACCAMAW participated in various
operations and exercises with boththe Sixth
and Second Fleets . In September and October
1957 WACCAMAW was a member of the re-
plenishment group supporting the Interna-
tional Fleet in the NATO fall exercises. In
the course of these exercises WACCAMAW
was the last oiler to fuel the battleship USS
WISCONSIN and the first to fuel the super
carriers USS FORRESTAL and USS SARA-
V A much needed overhaul at Boston in
the winter of 1957-58 was followed by train-
ing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. During the
fiscal year of 1959 WACCAMAW completed
her seventh tour with the Sixth Fleet and
was awarded the U.S. Atlantic Fleet Battle
Effeciency Award for Excellence.
1962 brought a new tour with the Sixth
Fleet and assignments with the Second Fleet
taking her to the new fuel depots at El
Ferrol del Candillo in Spain and Scapa Flow
in the Orkney Islands.
WACCAMAW returned to the U.S. in
1963 and was again awarded the Battle Ef-
February 1964 took WACCAMAW to a
one day layover at San Diego to unload 60
tons of Project Handclasp material and
thence to conversion at Puget Sound Naval
Shipyard, Bremerton, Washington. This
conversion has become known as "Jumboi-
zation" and involves replacing the midbody
with a new longer midbody increasing the
ship's length 93 feet and capacity by 50 per-
In addition to jumboization WACCA-
MAW was fitted with a modified stern with
counterbalanced rudder, shorter shafts and
stern tubes, the latest fueling and replenish-
ment equipment along with electric deck
winches and cargo pumps, increased elec-
trical generating capacity and new ship's
store, library, barbershop and laundry fa-
WACCAMAW resumed active duty 26
February 1965 with refresher training at
Guantanamo Bay followed by an Assigned
Shakedown Availability at Naval Ship Yard,
Boston. The Availability completed WAC-
CAM AW returned to Norfolk until November
when she participated in the recovery of the
Gemini 6 and 7 space shots as a unit of
Task Force 140. She returned to Norfolk
for a brief rest then joined Operation
Springboard in the Caribbean. On 4 May
1966 WACCAMAW left on her tenth deploy-
ment as the fir st jumbo oiler to operate
with the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean.

THE CO ERSION STORY
The conversion of WACCAMAW included what has be-
come known in the shipbuildingtrade as a jumboization. This
involved replacing the midbody' containing the cargo tanks
with a new longer midbody having about 50 per cent greater
cargo tank capacity. This operation consisted of five basic
steps. First the bow was cut off and retained in the drydock
while the rest of the ship was floated out. Next the new mid-
body was floated in, raised and joined to the bow. The third
step was the transfer of the bridge structure from the old
midbody to the new by use of the heavy lift crane at Puget
Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton. Next the stern section was
severed and retained in drydock while the old midbody was
floated out. In the last step the new midbody, with bow and
bridge structure attached, was floated into the dock, raised
and joined to the stern.
Although replacement of the midbody was the single big-
gest change, many other important improvements were made
during conversion. A major modification was made to the
stern including a new counterbalanced rudder, new stern
casting and struts, and new shorter propeller shafts and
stern tubes. The latest design in fueling and replenishment
at sea equipment was added including kingposts with out-
riggers, ram tensioned span wires and high lines, electric
hydraulic winches, cargo elevators, helicopter pick-up
area, and sliding blocks and cargo drop reels at replenish-
ment stations. The pumping capacity was improved by the
addition of new larger capacity electric driven cargo pumps,
larger cargo piping and double hose fueling rigs. An auxiliary
diesel generator plant developing 4500 KW was installed to
provide power for the deck machinery and cargo pumps.
Enclosed space was provided for stowage of fleet cargo,
bottled gas and fleet mail. Habitability was improved by the
air conditioning of all office and living spaces, installation
of a new ship's store, library, barber shop and additional
4-a. '. .

Our cruise to the Mediterranean will be an active
source of personal memories to each of us for years
to come. More important, you of WACCAMAW have
developed a reputation enjoyed by few ships - com-
batant or auxiliary. You did the job when it most
needed to be done. You broke several records of long
standing such as number of ships replenished during
a deployment, time from approach of a customer ship
to commencement of pumping and the like. Icommend
each and everyone of youfor this "can do" spirit which
you showed on so many occasions when the chips were

WACCAMAW'S trip to the Mediter-
ranean began on May 4th, 1966, just as Sum'
' f lk r a.
mer was descending upon the Nor o a e
Families and friends were left standing at
Pier 123 the sounds of the band grewfainter
and fainter, and the low, rolling coastline
of North America dropped quickly from
The nine day crossing of the Atlantic
was uneventful except for the sightings of
whales, porpoise, and one small sailing
craft carrying two men to Europe. Then,
on 13 May, the rugged coastline of Spain
appeared and WACCAMAW dropped anchor
alongside the USS SEVERN at Rota.
After relieving SEVERN and "chopping"
to the Sixth Fleet, WACCAMAW departed
Rota on 16 May and entered the Mediter-
Right away she got a taste of what was
to be expected of her for the next five months
as units of TASK FORCE 60.2 came at her
in quick succession. The new crew members
learned their jobs quickly and turned to,
intent upon showing just what a Jumbo oiler
could do. She was going to be the best or
know the reason why!
That first week also saw WACCAMAW
to the most easterly point of her cruise as
she transitedl the Dardanelles, crossed the
Sea of Marmara, and arrived at Istanbul,
Turkey, on 24 May. After spending seven
days at Istanbul, WACCAMAW departed 31
May to conduct amaj or under way replenish-
ment with TASK FORCE 60.2 as they again
,crossed the Sea of Marmara.
By this time the fuel load had been
drastically reduced so a refueling stop was
made at Suda Bay, Crete. WACCAMAW ar-
rived there on 4 June and, on 6 June, de-
parted for Rhodes, where she rejoined the
task force on the 7th. After spending three
very enj oyable days in Rhodes , WACC AMAW
was again underway, carrying out her as-
J une 20th saw WACCAMAW entering the
port which would be her second home during
the ensuing months, Naples, Italy
There the fuel load was "topped off"
and on 29 June, WACCAMAW set sail for
Pollensa, Majorca, where units of the Sixth
Fleet were gathering to hold discussions on
the forthcoming exercises.
WACCAMAW left Pollensaon1July and
arrived at the beautiful Italian Riviera City
of Rapallo on 4 July. On 10 July WACCAMAW
sadly departed Rapallo for eleven hard-
working, difficult days at sea. 21 July saw
her in Naples for a one day fuel loading
followed by another difficult two weeks at
Having arrived on 1 August, WAC..
CAMAW relaxed for five days at Palermo,
Sicily, before another ten days at sea and
a return to Naples, on 15 August, for a
fifteen day Tender Availability.
Upon completion of the Tender Avail-
ability WACCAMAW departed Naples and
steamed for the Greek port of Argostoli
where she had the pleasure of refueling the
submarine USS TRIGGER. On 1 September
she departed Argostoli for a five day trip
terminating at Athens, Greece.
For ten days WACCAMAW anchored in
the bay at Piraeus while the crew saw the
sights and toured the ruins of ancient
Greece. Then, on 16 September, she left
for another arduous ten days at sea. On 26
September, WACC AM AW visited Naples for
the last time this cruise. She left there on
1 October to begin her homeward journey.
Arrival at Valencia, Spain on 5 Octoberwas
followed by two disappointing days because
wind conditions prevented the Liberty Boats
from reaching the shore. WACCAMAWth6I1
set sail on the last leg of her cruise with
the Sixth Fleet, arriving at Gibraltar on9
October. After being relieved by the USS
CALOOSAHATCHEE, she began the long
trip to Norfolk. Eleven days of steady steam-
ing at "max" speed raised the familial'
coastline on the horizon and as WACCA'
MAW negotiated the last mile of her 20,000
mile journey, the friends and families left
behind 170 days before were once again Un
the pier waiting to welcome home the well
trained men who made up WACCAMAVWS
WE RE EMBER
ROTA, SPAIN ,
Rota is a small settlement on the coast of Spain
and is primarily a naval base. It is near Cadiz whose
history dates back to its founding by the Phoenigians
circa 1100 B.C. Cadiz reached its zenith of prosperity
and importance with the discovery of America when it
became the European emporium for the new world.
Cadiz has long been the center of the Spanish-Americ an
trade though the commerce of the port was reduced
with the separation of the Spanish Colonies.
There is very little industry in the areas around
Rota and Cadiz, the economy being based on trade with
the U.S. and other American countries and on farming
it being an area of great fertility.
Istanbul is the only city in the world
located on two continents. Here Asia meets
and mingles with Europe not only physically
but culturally as well. The city is built on
seven hills and is split into three different
sections. The Bosporus, anarrow waterway
which connects the sea of Marmarawiththe
Black Sea, separates Asiatic and European
Istanbul. The European side of the city is
divided by an arm of the Bosporus, the
fabled "Golden Horn".
A city of over two million people, Is-
tanbul is the business, comercial and cul-
tural center of Turkey.
Istanbul began as a Greek settlement,
founded in 685 B.C. as Byzantium. It was
under the domination of Persia, Macedonia
and Rome. In 423 A.D. the cityfell to Cons-
tantine who renamed it Constantinople. The
modernization of Turkey was started in 1908
and in 1924 the new Turkish Republic moved
its capital from Constantinople to Ankara,
and officially renamed the city Istanbul.
Istanbul will be remembered chiefly

SUDA BAY, CRETE
Suda Bay is one of the many minor
cities along the northern coast of Crete. It
lies just east of the capital, Canea, in a
splendid natural harbor which has been used
by the British Navy as an operational base
On several occasions but has not been devel-
Oped into a port. The island of Crete has
very little to offer in the line of interesting
history. It was essentially an inhospitable
land with little rainfall and few natural
During classical Greek times, Crete
remained abackward, semi-barbaric region
divided into numerous small sovereignties.
The industry of Crete is virtually
limited to the processing of agricultural
products, olive and grape presses, cheese

who enjoy the many outdoor cafes and
taverns which abound along the city's main

i?alermo is the capital of Palermo Pro-
when as well as Sicily. It is beautifully Situated
on a bay of the Tyrrhenian Sea, at the foot of
Mount Pellegrino. It is the seat of the regional
government of Sicily and is the chief port with
large Shipyards and a dry dock.
The founding of Palermo is attributed to
the Phoenicians. In the 5th century B.C. it
passed to the Carthaginians and was subse-
quently ruled, in turn, by the Romans, the
Vandals, the Goths, the Byzantine Empire, the
Moslems, the Normans, the Spanish and the
Italians. In World War II, it was captured by
the Allies in July of 1943.
Palermo is more industrialized than other
island cities. It produces steel, chemicals,
cork, textiles, processed foods and wine. It is
a rather large city and enjoys arelatively high
standard of living.
Much of Palermo was destroyed during
World War II and very little remains to show
its historic past.
No other city in the world has had so
glorious a history as Athens, the city of the
goddess Athena. Blessed both by nature and
the Gods, the city, during the classical era,
attained the highest ideal of greatness, beauty
and truth that has ever shone forthfrom human
intellect and inspiration. Its history, as with
many other ancient cities, is clouded by the
mists of time but more than supplemented by
colorful Greek mythology.
Athens was inhabited at the end of the
Neolithic Era, three thousand years before
Christ. In the 7th century B.C. the Royalty
system of ruling was replaced by a new con-
cept - Aristocracy. After many years of
Aristocratic Dictatorship came the ultimate
concept of Athenian Democracy.
Athens today is a city of rich contrast. One
may sit in an ultramodern hotel and gaze out
at the ancient buildings of the Acropolis. In
all directions can be seen the evidence of the
once gr e at civilization which inhabited this
The downtown area of Athens shows the
contrast in narrow, winding streets occupied
by modern stores and shops. The Athenian
people are very friendly and kind and are
fiercely proud of their heritage. They are a
colorful people with a colorful language.
Athens has other interesting places. There
are flower filled parks and restaurants, espe-
cially the picturesque taverns of the Placa,
with their vivid color and romantic decoration
where one may dine on squid or octopus served
with golden "vRetsina", the famous wine of
Valencia, capital of a province of the same
name, is located on the banks of the Guadalavia
river on the east coast of Spain. It was an im-
portant city in Roman times and was destroyed
by Pompey in 75 B.C. and was long the capital
of a kingdom of Valencia until unification into
modern Spain in 1319.
It is now a major city and a great tourist
attraction noted for its fine silks ,leather goods ,
pottery and wines.
It is a large city with many plazas or gar-
dens throughout the downtown area. There are
many fine night clubs which offer entertainment
in the form of native dancing and singing. The
city has a fascinating history but is re-
membered by most Americans as the city El
Cid saved from the Moors. The surrounding
beaches make it an interesting sun bathing
The region around Valencia is inhabited by
small farmers and much ofthe best land is
already irrigated. The land is so fertile that
its inhabitants call it "A piece of Heaven on
Gibraltar is a combination of town, rock
fortress and naval base. It is a British Crown
Colony situated on a peninsula about two and
thfee-quarter miles long and three-quarter
miles wide. The colony has an area of two and
0116-quarter square miles and is joined to
Spain by a low, sandy isthmus about a mile
Iona and half a miie wide.
Q The Rock of Gibraltar, a towering, jagged
llmestone promontory, rises almost sheer at
the north end of the peninsula and extends
Swthward some two and a half miles. It has a
maximum height of 1,396 feet.
The Colony consists of the Northern Town,
facing the harbor and including the business
area, and the South Town, or civilian area. A
Free Port, Gibraltar has an extensive ship-
ping and transit tradeg is an important fueling
station, and a popular tourist place. Its indus-
tries are small and only of local importance.
Gibraltar was captured by the English in
1704 and though attacked and besieged many
times since they have held it. Tradition has it
that the British will possess Gibraltar as long
as the famous Apes inhabit the Rock.
