February 13, 1942
BEACON, Philadelphia Navy Yard, February 13, 1942
* USS Butler & USS Gherardi launching w/ photo
* World War II destroyers
A military paper produced at the Navy Yard, which was a major site for not only the building of new warships but also the repair of vessels damaged in the war. As would be expected there is a great wealth of war-related content, with an emphasis of naval items.
This issue is special as it has coverage on the launching of the USS Butler and USS Gherardi with related photo (see photos). Great and very rare to have in this title.
Eight pages, 10 1/2 by 16 pages, printed on high quality paper, nice condition.
