Ropemakers for the Navy: Part II

In Ropemakers for the Navy: Part I we discussed the methods for making rope and the creation of the only U.S. Navy ropewalk, built at the Charlestown Navy Yard in the mid-1830s.

“Ropewalk building, Charlestown Navy Yard”, ca. 1930 [Photograph by Leslie Jones, Courtesy Boston Public Library]

As the 19th century progressed, a different natural fiber was introduced into the American cordage industry. In the 1880s, the United States began importing less expensive “Manila hemp.” Named for the port in the Philippines where the plants were shipped from, Manila hemp (or just “Manila”, as it came to be known), is the abaca plant. The long, silky fiber that is stripped from the plant’s stalk provides natural rope making material. As a cost-saving measure, Manila was used in addition to American-grown hemp in the Charlestown Navy Yard ropewalk.

The ropewalk entered a new era of modernization at the dawn of the 20th century. Electric lighting was installed in 1895 and fire sprinkler equipment was installed between 1899 and 1900. In 1908, the second story of the ropewalk, where the spinning equipment was stationed, was extended. By 1919, a woman’s restroom was added as a result of World War I and the employment of women at the ropewalk.

USS Constitution’s Rig in the 20th Century

In June, 1927, USS Constitution entered Dry Dock 1 in the Charlestown Navy Yard for what would become a massive, four-year, nearly $1 million restoration. As part of “renewing” (i.e. replacing) 85 percent of the ship’s structures, Constitution also received a whole new sailing rig including masts, yards, and a suit of cotton canvas sails. A sailing frigate the size of “Old Ironsides” required approximately 40 miles of cordage of varying diameters. The cordage became the standing rigging to support the masts and the many lines needed for the running rigging used to manipulate the sails.

All of Constitution‘s rigging for the 1927-1931 restoration was made at the Charlestown Navy Yard ropewalk. According to plan #50670, “Lengths and Weights of Hemp Rope for Rigging, Cables and Sails” (shown below), only hemp was used for the standing and running rigging, bolt ropes for the sails, cables, and other miscellaneous small lines.

“Plan #50670, U.S. Frigate Constitution Lengths and Weights of Hemp Rope for Rigging, Cables and Sails, Navy Yard Boston, April 5, 1929.” About 67 tons of rope was manufactured at the Boston Navy Yard, for standing and running rigging, bolt ropes for sails, block straps, etc. [Courtesy Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston].

The photograph below, taken in mid-June of 1931 as the re-rigging of Constitution was being completed, shows the web-like appearance of a nearly fully rigged sailing ship. Note the various tarpaulins draped over the carronades along the port side of the deck. The tarps were likely used to cover the guns so that the freshly tarred standing rigging would not drip onto the guns and their carriages. The circular basket-like object in the lower right of the photograph is a bin into which the sheet lines of the large topsails overhead were neatly coiled.

As the United States entered World War II, the Charlestown Navy Yard workforce, including that of the ropewalk, expanded to meet the wartime demands. Every U.S. Navy battleship required 34,000 feet of cordage, a difficult challenge as ropemaking materials were becoming harder to import during the war. Homegrown resources were tapped to supply the enormous amount of rope needed for the Navy. To encourage hemp production, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released in 1942 a short film titled Hemp for Victory. The film explained the uses for hemp and encouraged agricultural workers to grow as much as possible to aid in the war effort.

Screenshot from Hemp for Victory (1942). The film was produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to encourage farmers to grow hemp for industrial wartime use.

In the Hemp for Victory film, produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and directed by Raymond Evans, hemp cultivation is featured along with the ropewalk at the Charlestown Navy Yard (the ropewalk is mentioned at 11 minutes 25 seconds).

Hemp, from the genus cannabis, can grow up to 16 feet in height and has been cultivated for nearly three millennia. The strong, durable fiber used to make cordage is located in the stalk of the plant. Cannabis is the general term applied to several cannabis plants of which some, such as Marijuana, are known for their hallucinogenic effects. Hemp and cannabis (Marijuana) are cousins and contemporary slang often conflates the two.

The final decades of the Charlestown Navy Yard ropewalk

Fibers were twisted clockwise into yarns and then coiled onto bobbins, as seen in this 1955 photograph of the Charlestown Navy Yard’s ropewalk. The yarns were used in later ropemaking stages for the strands of a finished length of rope. [Courtesy The Boston Globe]

“By the mid-1950s, the future of the Ropewalk was being called into question as the Navy came under heavy pressure to eliminate industrial operations seen as competing with private industry. The Ropewalk survived this closure threat in 1955 and 1956 by being reoriented towards research and development activities. Rope production was allowed to continue so that the facility could become financially self-supporting. After 1962, only nylon rope was produced.” [Charlestown Navy Yard Historic Resource Study, Stephen Carlson, 2010.]

The ropewalk was finally closed in December 1971. Since the 1927 restoration, USS Constitution had carried Charlestown Navy Yard hemp rigging. In her 1973-1975 restoration, though, the ship received her first set of synthetic rigging, polypropylene, not manufactured by the Yard’s ropewalk.

In the few years before the ropewalk shutdown, a portion of the laying ground, where the lengths of rope were created, was set up as a ropewalk exhibit. With the exception of the ropemaking equipment in the exhibit, the rest was declared surplus by the U.S. Navy and sold to another Massachusetts ropemaking facility. Any equipment left in the ropewalk in 1974, when the Charlestown Navy Yard closed, was transferred to the National Park Service.

After 175 years of serving the U.S. Navy, the Charlestown Navy Yard closed in 1974. Thirty acres of the 150-acre Yard became part of the Boston National Historic Park maintained by the National Park Service.

At first, the ropewalk was not a part of the 30 acres included for preservation and its future was uncertain. However, between the late 1970s and early 1980s, preservation, stewardship, and oversight guidelines for the ropewalk complex were established between the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the National Park Service, the Massachusetts State Preservation Officer, and the Boston Landmarks Commission.

During these major transitions, from the 1970s to today, the ropewalk structure has aged, but it has, in general, maintained most of its structural integrity. When viewed from the main entrance, the Charlestown Navy Yard ropewalk has remained largely unchanged since its first known illustration in 1852.

The future of the Ropewalk

The future looks bright for the ropewalk. In May 2016, The Boston Globe featured an article about developer Joe Timilty and his plans to redevelop the ropewalk into high end housing. As an historic building, there are specific conditions imposed by the National Park Service and the Massachusetts Historical Commission that must be incorporated into the design.

The redeveloped ropewalk building will feature a ropemaking museum at one end, a stone walkway restored along the exterior, and a painted mural depicting the ropewalk and the Navy Yard. Timilty, along with the National Park Service, Boston Redevelopment Authority (now renamed the Boston Planning & Development Agency) and the Charlestown Neighborhood Council, will work together to recreate the ropewalk for the 21st century.

The National Park Service, stewards of the Charlestown Navy Yard, preserves the history of the ropewalk in an interactive exhibit in their Visitor Center, located in Building 5 in the Yard. The exhibit explores the ropewalk’s history, including examples of the machinery, rope, and an explanation of ropemaking techniques.

Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section).

Crosby joined in exercises in Guantanamo Bay until sailing for Trepassey Bay, Newfoundland in May 1919, to serve as plane guard during the historic flight of Navy seaplanes, the first aerial crossing of the Atlantic.

On 1 July 1919, Crosby was assigned to the Pacific Fleet, and a week later she sailed from New York for San Diego, arriving 7 August. She visited Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, then was placed in reserve status with reduced complement at San Diego 30 January 1920. She continued in reserve and was decommissioned 7 June 1922.

World War II [ edit | edit source ]

Recommissioned 18 December 1939, Crosby sailed on Neutrality Patrol out of San Pedro from 1 April 1940. On 1 July 1940, she was assigned to the 11th Naval District Defense Forces, and after a reserve training cruise resumed her patrols and provided services to Destroyer Base, San Diego for the training of destroyer crews.

With the entry of the United States into the war, Crosby continued to patrol the waters of the 11th Naval District and to escort convoys locally until 1 February 1943 when she entered Mare Island Navy Yard for conversion to a high-speed transport. She was reclassified APD-17, 22 February 1943.

Clearing San Francisco 27 February 1943, Crosby sailed by way of Pearl Harbor, Samoa, Viti Levu, and Noumea to Espiritu Santo, arriving 27 March for training exercises with the 4th Marines. Beginning the distinguished active service which was to bring her a Navy Unit Commendation, Crosby cleared 29 April for Guadalcanal as a transport screen. She made two similar voyages until 6 June, and then reported for patrol and escort duty in the Solomons. Crosby effectively aided in the consolidation of the Solomons, landing troops on New Georgia between 30 June and 5 July on the Treasury Islands under heavy gunfire on 27 October and on Bougainville on 6 and 17 November. She sailed 21 November for overhaul at Brisbane, Australia, returning to Milne Bay, New Guinea, 12 December. She trained Army and Marine personnel in amphibious landings, then landed troops at Cape Gloucester, New Britain, between 24 and 29 December 1943 and at Dekays Bay, New Guinea on 2 January 1944.

Clearing Milne Bay 6 January 1944, Crosby escorted convoys from Espiritu Santo to the Solomon Islands through January, remaining in the Solomons on antisubmarine patrol and screening duty. She landed troops on Green Island from 15 to 20 February and on Emirau Island on 20 March. Returning to the New Guinea operations 6 April, she landed troops at Aitape on 22 and 26 April escorted convoys to Hollandia participated in the invasion of Biak Island on 27 May and served as flagship for landing craft in Humboldt Bay from 31 May to 6 July. Following a brief overhaul at Manus, she landed troops on Cape Sansapor on 30 July, then sailed to Sydney, Australia, for replenishment and repairs. She returned to Humboldt Bay on 30 August and landed troops on Morotai 15 September to complete her operations in the New Guinea area.

Crosby put out from Humboldt Bay 12 October 1944 and put men of the 6th Rangers ashore on Suluan Island, Leyte, 17 October, for a reconnaissance mission. In preparation for the invasion landings, she landed troops on Dinagat Island, at the opening of Leyte Gulf on 19 and 20 October. Reloading troops at Humboldt Bay, she landed them in Ormoc Bay 7 December. She recovered the survivors of Ward which was sunk by American gunfire after severe damage from Japanese kamikazes. Crosby participated in the landings on Mindoro 15 December and again returned to Humboldt Bay for additional men. After landing her troops at Lingayen Gulf on 11 January 1945, Crosby continued to support the Luzon landings, landing men successfully at Nasugbu on 31 January Mariveles on 15 February and Corregidor on 17 February. On 25 February she cleared for Ulithi and an overhaul.

Crosby arrived at Okinawa 18 April and for hazardous antisubmarine patrol and radar picket duty, narrowly escaping damage from a suicide plane 13 May. She stood out for San Francisco 18 May and arrived 19 June. Overage and badly battered from her long and strenuous service, it was considered unfeasible to repair her. Crosby was decommissioned 28 September 1945 and sold 23 May 1946, to Boston Metals Co., Baltimore Maryland. [citation needed]


USS Crosby (DD-164), Boston Navy Yard, 25 January 1919 - History

ALDEN (Destroyer No. 211) was laid down on 24 October 1918 at Philadelphia by the William Cramp and Sons shipyard launched on 14 May 1919 sponsored by Miss Sarah Alden Dorsey, a niece of the late Rear Admiral Alden and commissioned on 24 November 1919, Comdr. William Ancrum in command.

Following shakedown training and post-shakedown repairs and alterations, ALDEN, subsequently reclassified to DD-211 during the fleetwide assignment of alphanumeric hull numbers on 17 July 1920, sailed on 5 December 1919 for duty in European waters, proceeding to Constantinople, and thence to Samsun, Turkey.

ALDEN visited Adriatic ports during the spring of 1920, investigating political conditions and "showing the flag" to protect American interests in the area, her ports of call including Spalato, Gravosa, and Pola. During her trips along the Adriatic coast, she carried mail and passengers, and for a time served as station ship at Venice. Proceeding to Constantinople to participate in relief efforts for refugees from the Russian Civil War, she resumed her Adriatic operations soon thereafter, visiting Cattaro and Spalato before she returned to Venice (12-13 December 1920). Sailing thence, she again visited Spalato and Gravosa, in succession, before she proceeded to Salonika, Greece, where she arrived on 15 December 1920.

Released from duty with the United States Naval Detachment in the Adriatic soon thereafter ALDEN sailed for the Asiatic Station via the Suez Canal. She ultimately reached Manila, Philippine Islands, on 2 February 1921. Following upkeep at the Asiatic Fleet's base at Cavite, the destroyer sailed for Chinese waters, and arrived at Chefoo on 22 June 1921. She operated out of the Asiatic Fleet destroyers' summer base until 15 September, when she sailed for Shanghai. Assigned special duty, ALDEN wound up her ten-day stay in that port on 27 September and cleared Shanghai for the Yangtze River port of Hankow, which she reached on 1 October. Remaining there until the 7th, she proceeded back to Shanghai, arriving on the 9th to stay only long enough to fuel and take on provisions, before she sailed for the Philippines the same day.

ALDEN arrived at Cavite on 12 October, but soon shifted to Manila on the 14th for a three-day liberty and recreation port visit. The ship then spent two months operating out of Olongapo on target practice, returning to Manila on 17 December 1921. She then fueled and took on stores at Cavite before she sailed to Mariveles, whence she operated with Asiatic Fleet submarines. ALDEN then conducted long-range battle practice evolutions out of Manila into January 1922. Subsequently, she based temporarily out of Olongapo before undergoing a tender availability alongside Buffalo in March. Then, following a stint of target and torpedo practice in the waters of Lingayen Gulf from 13 April to 25 May 1922, the destroyer enjoyed a five-day respite at Manila before she sailed for Shanghai, China, on 3 June and a drydocking in that port. ALDEN then sailed for Japanese waters, visiting the port of Yokohama. Winding up her deployment in the Asiatic Fleet that summer, ALDEN sailed for the United States, and ultimately reached San Francisco on 2 October 1922. She was decommissioned at San Diego on 24 January 1923.

ALDEN remained inactive through the rest of the 1920's, but was recommissioned at San Diego on 8 May 1930, Lt. Comdr. Lloyd R. Gray in command, and assigned to Destroyer Squadrons, Battle Fleet (later, Destroyers, Battle Force). As part of Destroyer Division (DesDiv) 46, and later as a unit of DesDiv 10 ALDEN was homeported at San Diego, with her home yard at Mare Island. She carried out regular underway training evolutions, with routine periods of upkeep in port over the next six years.

The training for each year culminated in the annual large-scale war games, or fleet problems. Over the next few years, ALDEN participated in six of these. However, she did not participate in Fleet Problem XVII in the spring of 1936 due to DesDiv 10's undergoing two months' overhaul at the Mare Island Navy Yard.

While ALDEN lay at Mare Island, SMITH THOMPSON (DD-212), in the Asiatic Fleet, had suffered heavy damage in a collision with WHIPPLE (DD-217) on 14 April 1936, and, unfit for further service had been struck on 19 May. ALDEN, chosen to replace the lost SMITH THOMPSON, sailed on 15 July for the Asiatic Station. Stopping briefly at Pearl Harbor, whence she sailed on 21 July, the ship paused at Wake Island, and after a stop at Guam, eventually arrived at Chefoo on 20 August 1936.

Over the next six years, ALDEN-assigned initially to DesDiv 13-steamed north to China in the spring, spent the summer operating out of Chefoo, and returned to the Philippines in the fall for further exercises and upkeep at Cavite over the winter. She carried out this routine against a backdrop of rising Sino-Japanese tension, as a resurgent China feverishly armed itself to deal with Japan. Hostility between these two Asiatic powers had flared and abated as the 1930's wore on, but exploded into open warfare in July 1937.

Since the Sino-Japanese hostilities seemed confined at the outset to North China, Admiral Harry E. Yarnell, Commander in Chief, Asiatic Fleet (CINCAF), felt few reservations about carrying out a planned goodwill cruise to Vladivostok, USSR. ALDEN accompanied the squadron flagship PAUL JONES (DD-230) her division-mates WHIPPLE and BARKER (DD-213), to sea from their base at Chefoo, and rendezvoused with Admiral Yarnell's flagship, AUGUSTA (CA-31), at the end of the afternoon watch on 25 July. Yarnell's ships reached Vladivostok on the morning of the 28th, and remained there until the afternoon of 1 August, in this first visit to a Russian port since the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union in 1933. On the latter date the destroyers sailed for Chefoo and Augusta for Tsingtao.

After hostilities broke out at Shanghai in mid-August, the ships of the Asiatic Fleet carried out a curtailed training schedule for the remainder of the summer and into the fall, chiefly standing by to assist Americans who might be affected by the Sino-Japanese War. ALDEN eventually returned to the Philippines for the winter for upkeep and training. One incident, however, interrupted this routine.

Early on the morning of 11 December 1937, ALDEN and BARKER, then at Manila, received orders to proceed immediately to the aid of the American Dollar Liner SS PRESIDENT HOOVER, which had run aground off Formosa. Due to the urgency of the situation ALDEN sailed without her captain, Lt. Comdr. Stanley M. Haight and several officers and men. An amphibian plane from the Asiatic Fleet's utility unit, however, brought Haight out to ALDEN, rendezvoused with the ship and landed nearby. Sea conditions, however, precluded a boat's coming alongside the Grumman JF- 2 "Duck," for fear of it's damaging the plane's main float. Lt. Comdr. Haight seized the initiative and swam to one of his ship's 26-foot motor whaleboats to be brought on board his ship to assume command.

ALDEN, resuming her voyage, eventually sighted her destination, Hoishoto Island, at 1245 on the 12th, and immediately requested permission from the captain of the Japanese cruiser ASHIGARA to enter Japanese territorial waters. Barker arrived soon thereafter, after which time an officer from ASHIGARA arrived on board ALDEN to give his government's permission to enter and assist PRESIDENT HOOVER. Anchoring to the westward of Hoishoto, ALDEN remained off that island until 23 December, sending a guard of two officers (Lt. Comdr. Haight and Ens. John H. Parker) and 15 men to protect the considerable amount of mail on board the stranded liner. Early in this period, perhaps incident to the tensions which existed in the wake of the sinking of the gunboat PANAY (PR-5) in the Yangtze River by Japanese aircraft on 12 December ALDEN broke out and stowed in her ready racks 47 rounds of 4-inch service ammunition during the forenoon watch on 14 December.

The following summer, ALDEN, in company with her sister ships and the tender BLACK HAWK (AD-9), visited Haiphong, French Indochina, from 21 to 28 June 1938 before continuing up to Chefoo. With the start of the European war in September 1939, concern over the Japanese taking advantage of the preoccupation of the British and French with European affairs to extend her own sphere of influence prompted increased American vigilance to protect the lives and property of Americans in the Far East. To this end, some of the ships of the Asiatic Fleet's destroyers were rotated to duty with units such as the South China Patrol. ALDEN operated with this command between September and November 1939, before she returned to the Philippines.

The international climate making it dangerous to keep the Asiatic Fleet deployed to Chinese waters, Admiral Thomas C. Hart (who had relieved Admiral Yarnell as CINCAF in July 1939) withdrew it-with the exception of the river gunboats on the Yangtze and South China Patrols-to the Philippines in late 1940. There, in the waters of that archipelago the fleet prepared for war. ALDEN took part in this training, interspersing it with periods of upkeep at Cavite, into the tense autumn of 1941.

Due to the continued "tense and unpredictable" situation in the Far East at that time, Admiral Hart desired to "obtain additional security from surprise attack" and reduce the possibility of the Japanese cutting off "certain of his surface forces" from British and Dutch bases in the event of war. To that end, on 24 November 1941, CINCAF ordered Task Force 5, formed around MARBLEHEAD (CL-12), two destroyer divisions (57 and 58, the former including ALDEN) and BLACK HAWK, to the ports of Balikpapan and Tarakan, Borneo. Hart directed the detachment commanders to proceed to these ports for fuel, but to "have difficulty" in doing so, with a view toward lingering in those ports "for a protracted period if necessary."

ALDEN got underway at 0830 on 25 November 1941, bound for Borneo, accompanying BLACK HAWK, and arrived at Balikpapan on the morning of the 30th. While she lay in that port, the British Admiral Sir Tom Phillips, the newly designated Commander in Chief, Eastern Fleet, flew to Manila for conferences with Admiral Hart on 5 and 6 December. Phillips' sought the loan of destroyers from the Asiatic Fleet to help screen his capital ships, but Hart, opining that the British already possessed adequate resources in that department, demurred. Intelligence information disclosing the movement of a Japanese convoy in the Gulf of Siam, however, changed Hart's mind, and as Admiral Phillips resolved to return to Singapore, CINCAF decided to transfer one division of destroyers.

Consequently, ALDEN and three of her sister ships, as well as BLACK HAWK, were soon directed to proceed to Batavia, Java "for supplies and liberty." Soon after they departed Balikpapan however, the destroyers received new sailing orders: they were to proceed instead to Singapore, where they were to join Phillips' force formed around the battleship HMS PRINCE OF WALES and the battle cruiser HMS REPULSE.

ALDEN was en route to her destination when, at 0300 on 8 December 1941, she received word that "war had been started by Japan." At Singapore, reports of a Japanese invasion convoy standing toward Malaya compelled Admiral Phillips to act before his reinforcements could arrive, and he cleared Singapore on the evening of 8 December with PRINCE OF WALES and REPULSE, screened by four destroyers, to seek out the enemy.

Reaching Singapore on the morning of 10 December, ALDEN moored at 1113, and embarked a liaison party consisting of a Royal Navy lieutenant and four signalmen at 1130. She and her sister ships were still preparing for sea as Japanese high-level and torpedo bombers, flying from bases in Indochina, overwhelmed PRINCE OF WALES and REPULSE off Kuantan, Malaya, that same afternoon and sank them both. Underway at 1509, ALDEN and her sister ships soon cleared Singapore, and stood toward the scene of the action in response to Admiral Phillips' desperate signal, sent early in the battle, for destroyer assistance. Accompanying British and Australian destroyers had already rescued the survivors from the two capital ships, however, and were retiring toward Singapore.

ALDEN and her division mates subsequently entered the waters in which the battle had taken place earlier that day, looking for survivors, but only sighted pieces of wreckage, eventually winding up the search effort during the mid-watch. En route back to Singapore, ALDEN noted a "probable submarine attack," at 0630 on 11 December, and EDSALL (DD-219) left the formation to investigate the source of "torpedo wakes" but found nothing. ALDEN and her sister ships reached port on the morning of the 11th, ALDEN mooring alongside the Royal Fleet Auxiliary FRANCO at 1041 to replenish her fuel bunkers. While in port, she half-masted her colors in tribute to the men lost in PRINCE OF WALES and REPULSE. ALDEN remained at Singapore until the morning of the 14th when, after disembarking the Royal Navy liaison party she got underway with the rest of the division for Surabaya, Java. She reached that Dutch port late on the afternoon of 15 December.

Underway on the 20th for Australian waters, ALDEN sailed for Port Darwin in the screen of HOUSTON (CA-30), breaking up the routine of the voyage by sending boarding parties to investigate and establish the friendly character of various small craft and ships sighted en route. She fell in with another formation of American ships moving to Australian waters, PECOS (AO-6), OTUS (AS-20), and GOLD STAR (AG 12), two days before Christmas, and fueled at sea from PECOS the same day. The destroyer ultimately saw her charges safely to Darwin, dropping anchor in that north Australian port at 1305 on 28 December.

ALDEN-soon reassigned to DesDiv 58-spent the next several weeks escorting troop and supply convoys in support of efforts to defend the Malay Barrier. During the course of one such evolution, she was screening the oiler TRINITY (AO-13) to Port Darwin, on the morning of 20 January 1942, when TRINITY reported torpedoes fired at her. ALDEN immediately reversed course in the predawn darkness and carried out a depth charge attack but, in the ensuing moments, lost contact with the "submarine."

"Mindful of leaving (the) convoy unprotected" if she continued to seek out the submarine, ALDEN returned to her screening station and arrived at Port Darwin without further incident. At 1620 that afternoon, though, while she was taking on fuel from the tanker BRITISH SAILOR, ALDEN received orders to accompany EDSALL to the scene of the above attack. Underway at 1641 leaving a third of her crew behind to break out stores on board BLACK HAWK, ALDEN rushed to the scene, finding an Australian ship already dropping depth charges.

ALDEN and EDSALL patrolled one area in proximity of the submarine contact, while two Australian ships patrolled another. ALDEN developed a good contact early the following morning (21 January) and dropped six charges, with no result. A plane from LANGLEY (AV-3) reported carrying out an attack on a submarine a short time later, and ALDEN steamed to the scene, seeing oil still rising, she attacked, expending the rest of her depth charges in the tracks. Bringing up more charges from below, the destroyer carried out another attack soon thereafter. Then, having expended her last charge, ALDEN returned to Port Darwin.

EDSALL and the Australian ships, accompanied by a PBY, returned to the scene but were unable to locate the slick, last seen by ALDEN, because of a heavy rain squall in the vicinity. A short time later, it was determined that the victim of the earlier attack by EDSALL and the Australian minesweeper HMAS DELORAIRE was I-124, a large Japanese mine- laying submarine whose mines had already sunk three Allied merchantmen.

Clearing Darwin on 3 February, ALDEN sailed with a convoy bound for Java. Fueling from Trinity en route, the destroyer reached Tjilatjap, on the south coast of Java, late on the after noon of 10 February. Getting underway late the following day ALDEN joined PAUL JONES and the British auxiliary vessel HM BAN HONG LIONG on the morning of the 12th, and convoyed the Briton to the port of Koepang, Timor, arriving on the 16th. Returning to Tjilatjap on the morning of the 19th, ALDEN there fueled from PECOS. The following day, the destroyer briefly patrolled off the harbor entrance, covering the sortie of BLACK HAWK.

As the Japanese neared Java, the American-British-Dutch-Australian (ABDA) forces began gathering for a show-down. As part of this movement, ALDEN cleared Tjilatjap on the morning of 22 February for Surabaya and, along with PAUL JONES screened HOUSTON during the passage. The three ships arrived at their destination on the afternoon of the 24th.

Intelligence information indicating the possibility of a Japanese landing attempt in the vicinity, a mixed Dutch and American force (HOUSTON, the Dutch cruisers DE RUYTER and JAVA, two Dutch destroyers, and five American-including ALDEN) stood out after dark on 25 February and conducted a sweep off the northern coast of Madura Island. Not making any contact, the Allied force returned to Surabaya early the following morning.

Later that same day, 26 February, the commander of the ABDA striking force, the Dutch Rear Admiral Karel Doorman called a meeting of his commanders, and promulgated his plans to meet the Japanese. At 1922 on 26 February, the striking force swelled by the arrival of the Australian light cruiser HMAS PERTH, the British heavy cruiser HMS EXETER and three British destroyers, got underway and stood out of Surabaya.

Doorman's force again swept along the north coast of Madura but then, after having found the waters clear of enemy shipping at 2212 on 26 February reversed course. During the early morning, the ABDA force continued past Surabaya, and shaped a course toward the entrance to the minefields at 1300 on the 27th. Fresh contact reports, however, indicated the presence of a Japanese force heading south from the vicinity of Bawean Island. At 1500, as ALDEN was about to enter the channel through the minefields, she observed DE RUYTER reverse course and make a signal: "I am going to intercept an enemy unit . " The rest of the ABDA force followed, and stood toward the enemy.

At 1617, ALDEN observed gun flashes as the Japanese ships opened fire, answered shortly thereafter by HOUSTON, DE RUYTER and EXETER. The American destroyers, ALDEN steaming second in column, took up their position on the disengaged side of the column of Allied cruisers, to JAVA's starboard quarter. "Straining every rivet" to keep up with the cruisers, ALDEN and her sister ships made all possible speed. At 1714, observers on board ALDEN noted a Dutch destroyer, KORTENAER, take a torpedo which broke her in two. Soon thereafter, the Allied fleet changed course twice, in disarray due the accurate enemy gunfire and the threat posed by his superior torpedoes. The shell-damaged EXETER veered out of the allied battle line to cover her retirement, ALDEN and her sister ships laid smoke.

After he had made one order to counterattack with torpedoes and canceled it, Rear Admiral Doorman again ordered the destroyers to counterattack. On ALDEN's bridge, a man remarked: "I always knew these old four pipers would have to go in and save the day . " All within earshot laughed, and the comment broke the tension as the American destroyers, the oldest ships in the ABDA line, steered a course toward the Japanese and launched torpedoes from their starboard tubes at 1822. Then, following the movements of JOHN D. EDWARDS ahead, ALDEN reversed course and loosed her port "fish" at 1827. ALDEN's captain, Lt. Comdr. L. E. Coley, firmly believed that the American destroyers' attack saved EXETER from destruction at that time.

Poor visibility and the increasing range soon ended that phase of the battle, and the Allied force retired, Japanese scoutplanes occasionally dropping flares above the Allied ships. At 1958, the ABDA cruiser column turned to westward where, before the night was over, DE RUYTER and JAVA would be sunk, and HOUSTON and PERTH forced to flee ALDEN and her sisters turned eastward, to retire independently toward Surabaya, their torpedo stocks exhausted. Entering the minefields at 2230, the American destroyermen anchored their ships at 0210 on 28 February.

ALDEN remained there throughout the daylight hours. She fueled at Holland Pier and anchored in the harbor, where she observed two waves of enemy high-altitude bombers carry out raids that afternoon. That afternoon, ALDEN's captain, Lt. Comdr. Coley, noted carrier-type aircraft overhead, indicating that "enemy air activity" would soon be on the increase.

"It seemed that our best chance of getting through to an allied base," Coley wrote later, "was to evade the enemy and trust to the reduced visibility of night to get out of range of enemy aircraft. " Given permission to clear out as the noose around Java tightened, and to proceed to Exmouth Gulf, Australia, the four destroyers of DesDiv 58 sortied that night, clearing the mine-field an hour before midnight on 28 February, their crews at general quarters. ALDEN and the others steamed as close to the Java shore as they dared, hugging the coast, and turned, undetected, into Bali Strait. There, however, they soon encountered the Bali Attack Unit consisting of the Japanese destroyers HOTSUHARU, NENOHI, WAKABA, and HATSUSHIMO.

Around 0215, ALDEN spotted one destroyer almost due east of her, followed by two or more a short time later. Emerging from the coastal waters to clear a reef, the Americans apparently came into the enemy's sight soon thereafter, since gunfire erupted from the Japanese ships within 15 minutes' time. A five-minute running gun duel ensued between the two groups of destroyers before ALDEN and her sister ships checked fire and laid smoke. At a range of about 12 miles, the Japanese opened up again at 0250 the Americans, however, held their fire, reasoning that the enemy sought to force them into revealing their position by firing back.

Continuing on at 28 knots, the four "four-pipers" emerged from the encounter unscathed. As they neared their destination Cdr. Thomas H. Binford, Commander, DesDiv 58, paired his ships, the ones with Australian charts (ALDEN and PAUL JONES), with those which did not (JOHN D. EDWARDS and JOHN D. FORD (DD-228)), and the destroyermen reached Fremantle on the afternoon of 4 March 1942.

Reporting to Commander, Australia-New Zealand area, on 28 March 1942, ALDEN operated in the waters of the Southwest Pacific until sailing for Pearl Harbor, reaching her destination on 7 June en route to the west coast of the United States. Following an overhaul at the Mare Island Navy Yard, ALDEN commenced convoy escort duty between San Francisco and Hawaiian waters on 11 August 1942. Over the next eight months, ALDEN carried out this prosaic, but highly important, task until she departed Mare Island on 9 April 1943 for the Caribbean. Transiting the Panama Canal on 16 April and reporting that day to Commander, Caribbean Sea Frontier, she continued on to Trinidad, arriving there on 25 April.

The destroyer spent the next two months shuttling convoys between Trinidad and Guantanamo Bay, before she proceeded north to the New York Navy Yard, which she entered on 28 June for repairs and alterations. Upon completion of this availability, ALDEN sailed for Norfolk on 11 July, and joined a Morocco-bound convoy soon thereafter, reaching Casablanca on 28 July. After returning to the United States via Gibraltar, the ship entered the Charleston (S.C.) Navy Yard for a drydocking on 27 August. She sailed for Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, on 7 September and ultimately proceeded thence to Brazilian waters, reaching Recife on 8 October.

Underway for Caribbean waters on 4 November, ALDEN reached Trinidad ten days later, and sailed on 26 November as escort for the Army transport GEORGE WASHINGTON. Seeing that ship safely to her destination, Key West, Fla., on 1 December the destroyer proceeded to Charleston, arriving there on the 3d for upkeep. She steamed thence to Casco Bay, Maine, and refresher training, before she headed back to Norfolk, arriving at that port on the last day of the year 1943.

ALDEN sailed for North African waters on 5 January 1944, in a hunter- killer group formed around the escort carrier GUADALCANAL (CVE-60). On 16 January, a pair of Grumman TBF-1c "Avengers" from GUADALCANAL's Composite Squadron (VC) 13 caught a pair of U-boats on the surface, rendezvousing near the Azores and attacked, sinking U-544 before she could transfer radar detection gear to U-129. Reaching Casablanca on the 26th, the task unit sailed for the United States three days later, and reached Norfolk on 16 February. Shifting to the Boston Navy Yard for repairs and alterations soon thereafter, ALDEN returned to Norfolk on 12 March.

The destroyer sailed the following day for Tunisia as one of the 16 escort vessels shepherding convoy UGS-36, 72 merchantmen and 18 tank landing ships. Escort vessels drove off what was believed to be a U-boat late on 31 March, and six hours later, early on 1 April, 22 German aircraft attacked UGS-36. ALDEN, in the rear guard, aided in the defense of the convoy, as the escorts shot down two enemy aircraft and probably damaged two others. Ultimately, UGS-36 reached its destination, Bizerte, on 3 April. Nine days later, ALDEN sailed for the United States, reaching Hampton Roads on 1 May.

Following a brief availability at the Boston Navy Yard, ALDEN departed Boston on 27 May for New York, reporting for duty under Commander, Service Force, Atlantic Fleet, soon thereafter. She then operated out of Norfolk during June, principally on local escort duty. During this time, she screened WISCONSIN (BB-64) during a phase of that new battleship's shakedown training.

Following emergency repairs to a damaged propeller, ALDEN resumed escort operations, this time with ELOKOMIN (AO-55), as she convoyed the ship from Norfolk to Baytown to Galveston, thence to Guantanamo Bay and back to Galveston, before she escorted the oiler on a trip from Galveston to Bermuda, Casco Bay and Norfolk.

Undergoing an availability at the Norfolk Navy Yard upon conclusion of this duty in August 1944, ALDEN escorted CHICOPEE (AO-34) from Norfolk to Bermuda before the destroyer then convoyed ADAIR (APA-91) and the ill-fated ammunition ship MOUNT HOOD (AE-11) from Norfolk to the Canal Zone. Relieving sister ship JOHN D. EDWARDS under the auspices of Commander, Panama Sea Frontier, ALDEN operated in Panama waters as a training ship with submarines into November 1944, after which time the destroyer returned to Norfolk.

After she had suffered damage in a collision with the fast transport HAYTER (APD-80) on 31 January 1945, ALDEN underwent repairs in the Norfolk Navy Yard. Her availability extended to 28 February, ALDEN emerged from the yard soon thereafter and joined the escort of a Mediterranean-bound convoy, UGF-21 on 1 March. Subsequently returning to the United States with convoy GUF-21, the warship escorted the oiler MATTAPONI (AO-41) between Bermuda and Guantanamo, and CHIWAWA (AO-68) between Guantanamo and Bermuda before the destroyer returned to Norfolk. Then, following tender availability at Tompkinsville, ALDEN sailed for Mayport, Fla., on 2 June, where, upon her arrival, she was assigned plane guard duty with GUADALCANAL, the ship assigned to conduct carrier qualifications for fledgling pilots out of the Naval Air Station at Pensacola.
