U.S.S. Pigeon 1938 Photo
My father, Lloyd Jefcoat passed away Feb 26, 2005. Dad served in the US Navy from 1934-1940 and reenlisted in 1940 with the Seabees. In going through his old photos, I've found a photo of four of his shipmates taken aboard the USS Pigeon. The notation on the back is: "U.S.S. Pigeon, 1938.....Clause (Torp. 3rd Class), Dors (Seaman 1st Class), Whitaker (Seaman 2nd Class), and Bogle (Seaman 1st Class)". Does anyone recognize these names?? There are many other photos, I developed 70-year old negatives that Dad had stored away. Shipmates, ships, China, Forbidden City, Philippines, Cavitte Ammunition Depot; ships include Canopus, Pigeon, Pompano. Another photo of Dad is dated October 1935, notation on back is: "Taken at Temple of Heaven, Peiping, China. 7 meteoric rocks in the background". The picture with this one is of 3 shipmates standing in front of the direction sign for the meteoric rocks. If anyone remembers my dad or men he may have served with, please write.
