My Father's WWII Diary: Chapter 2

CHAPTER 2:  S.S. El Salvador Victory

            I decided to ship out of the west coast so I went to L.A.

            I signed on the El Salvador Victory in Wilmington, CA in Nov 1944 as a deck hand.

             It was a very uneventful trip.  We went to Melbourne, Australia; Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and Calcutta, India.  The returned reverse order, same ports.

             I can remember only a couple of names of the other crew members.

            We were gone 3 months, landing in Frisco.

            30 days home.
