SS EDWARD H. CROCKETT [LIBERTY SHIP]

This is the story of a Liberty ship......her merger life span of helping where she could....talking part in six Convoys.  She had guts...and she gave it her all....just like the gentleman that she was named after...Mr. Edward H. Crockett.

I have provided a brief bio of Mr. Crockett...as well as providing some insight on the dangers of being and escort vessel for these North Atlantic Convoys that the  Crockett was involved in.

So....if you have an interest in these 'Liberty's'...this one is fairly typical of what you'll see come to view on this blog of mine.....to do the histories on these "Ugly Ducklings" is a passion of mine....hope it is a good read as well as being informative.


Hope you enjoy
