Response to Passage aboard Bloemfontein

 

John,

Just to remind, the former USAT Republic had become the commissioned naval transport USS Republic in late July 1941. Guys aboard during the course of the Pensacola convoy spoke to the end of their days of USAT Republic, because surviving signs and other indicators specifying her USAT status were apparently common. But 'twas no longer so.
[see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Republic_(AP-33)]

Might as well get it right.

Nelson
