USS ASTERION WAK-123

Shown as the steamer SS EVELYN c 1918. She was 382'2" displacing 6,160 tons and launched on May 9, 1912. She operated commercially between the east coast and the West Indies. Acquired by the U.S. Navy in 1942 and renamed USS ASTERION AK-100, later redesignated AK-63. Her Naval service was actually as a "Q ship" with her armament concealed to help end the sinkings of commercial craft off the U.S. coast. She had a very colorful Naval career earning one battle star during WWII.

On December 16, 1943 she was transferred to the Coast Guard and on January 12, 1944 designated WAK-123 although she never saw service in that capacity but converted for weather ship duties on stations 3 and 4. She was decommissioned on July 20, 1944 and sold for scrap on September 10, 1946.

USCGC NORTHLAND
GREENLAND WWII

The 216 foot CGC NORTHLAND was commissioned in 1927 to replace the aging Cutter BEAR. Her original configuration was to be twin masts with sail. With the onset of WWII her after mast was removed along with all sails and a crane and a aircraft were added aft for recon.

On September 1, 1944 her crew made the first naval capture of WWII when a German trawler was seized in Greenland. She later captured German radio and weather stations in the same area and earned two Battle Stars. She was decommissioned in 1946.
