model 147B "sword" gear.A very special piece of anti sub equipment. Each unit
came with a British trained operator. In this case it was me. I remember Lt
Moscowitz was the Exec, Steven Karkee(sp) Captain and as the only Navy man on
the USCG manned ship, he was not sure my orders were not an error. I stayed with
her to the Pacific and back to green Cove, through her decommissioning. We were in
