Question On Division
I'm wondering if anyone can answer a question for me. I am trying to find what division my dad was in while serving on the battleship Nevada, 1940-46. All I see in his records is WT1c as the rate. What is the difference between Div. and Rate? Later on in his Navy career he was in the E division. He has a comendation letter for "keeping perfect steam" in the boiler room during a battle off the coast of Cherbourg, France June 25, 1944. My dad never talked much about what he did during the war and I'm having a hard time understanding some of his records.
Thanks in advance,
