31'8", s. 20 k., cpl. 100; a. 4 91" tt., cl. Thresher)

The second Had do was launched by New York Shipbuilding Corp., Camden, N.J., 18 August 1962, sponsored by Mrs. Henry M. Jackson, wife of the Senator from Washington commissioned 16 December 1964, Comer. John G. Williams ;n command

After shakedown out of Ne~ London, Conn., in January 1966, Had do arrived at her home port, Charleston, S.C., 8 February and joined Sub Ron 4. She operated off the Atlantic coast and in the Caribbean until departing Charleston 7 July for the Mediterranean. She participated in number exercises with ships of the 6th Fleet and NATO countries before returning home 7 November. Had do has continued this pattern of service, alternating operations out of home port in the Atlantic with 6th Fleet deployments, through 1967.

Haddo received an eighteen-month "subsafe" overhaul at Charleston Naval Shipyard from August 1969 to April 1970. Following overhaul, Haddo's home port changed to New London, Connecticut, where she became a member of Submarine Squadron TEN. Haddo operated out of New London from 1971 to 1973. In the spring of 1972, Haddo completed the first six-month Mediterranean deployment for an SSN. In the fall of 1972, she again deployed to the Med, returning just prior to Christmas.

From August 1973 until December 1975, Haddo underwent an extensive refueling overhaul at Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. In February 1976, Haddo's homeport shifted to San Diego, California and joined the Pacific Fleet as a member of Submarine Squadron THREE. The transit required Haddo to pass through the Panama Canal.

In the spring of 1977, Haddo departed for the Western Pacific, returning in the fall after an arduous six-month deployment. During the first three months of 1978, Haddo accomplished an intensive Selected Restricted Availability at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington. In December 1978, Haddo again deployed to the Western Pacific, visited New Zealand and returned in 1979.

Haddo arrived in Mare Island Naval Shipyard for another intensive Selected Restricted Availability in February 1980. In August of the same year she deployed to the Indian Ocean, visited HMAS Stirling in Western Australia from 16–22 December 1980, and returned to San Diego in February 1981.

In July 1981, Haddo deployed to the Western Pacific, visited Japan and returned to San Diego in late October 1981. Haddo arrived at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in April 1982 and underwent an extensive modernization and overhaul in January 1984, returning to San Diego.

From February to August 1985, Haddo again deployed to the Western Pacific visiting Japan and Hong Kong. As a result of her successful deployment, and superb operational reliability, Haddo was again awarded the Battle Efficiency "E" for Excellence for 1985. Haddo underwent an intensive Selective Restricted Availability in October 1985 in San Diego. Haddo then deployed to the Western Pacific from August 1986 to February 1987, again visiting Japan and Hong Kong. She completed several months of successful local operations before undergoing her last Selected Restricted Availability in San Diego from January to March 1988.

Haddo conducted a two-month ASW operation in June and July 1988. From February 1989 until February 1990, Haddo was deployed from San Diego over 300 days, conducting intensive operations in support of the National Defense, including a six-month deployment to the Western Pacific visiting Korea, Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines. During her last of six WESTPACs, she also completed the longest continuously submerged period in her 25-year history. In the fall-winter of 1989 and 1990, Haddo participated in the largest Pacific Fleet naval exercise since 1945, PACEX-89, and conducted a two-month ASW operation in the northern Pacific. Haddo was decommissioned and stricken from the Naval Vessel Register on 12 June 1991. Ex-Haddo entered the Nuclear Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program in Bremerton, Washington, and on 20 June 1992 ceased to exist.


Oliver Haddo was a black magician of ill repute. In 1908, he attempted several experiments to create a homunculus for the prophecized Moonchild to use as a vessel. The attempt was a failure and Haddo barely survived a fire at his Staffordshire estate, later assuming the alias of Dr. Karswell Trelawney.

In 1910, Oliver Haddo came to the attention of the League when their member, occult detective Thomas Carnacki had visions of Haddo convening to plot the creation of a Moonchild destined to bring forth the end of the world. Haddo encountered Orlando, Allan Quatermain and Carnacki when they stumbled into his circle of magicians. In response to Carnacki's accusations, Haddo pointed out to him and his colleagues that what Carnacki saw either is wrong or has not happened yet. In fact, Carnacki inadvertently gave Haddo a crucial piece of information that they need to create the Moonchild.

Oliver Haddo later contributed his service to the British government during World War II. During the post-war era, Haddo wrote the On the Descent of the Gods based on his collective research on the history of the paranormal. Reportedly, Haddo died destitute in Hastings in 1947. However, Haddo's spirit lived on and possessed Kosmo Gallion, and from there created the Cult of Gallion to continue his plan for the Antichrist. In 1969, Haddo intends to transfer his spirit to the body of Terner, the lead singer in the band Purple Orchestra. As Haddo prepares his ritual, he is confronted by Mina Murray on the astral plane. Haddo overpowers Mina, though he reveals that his possession of Terner will not affect his planned birth of the Antichrist. Unfortunately, the plan went awry as Gallion was killed by Jack Carter for the murder of Basil Fotherington-Thomas. Haddo was then forced to enter the body of Tom Riddle.

As Tom Riddle, Haddo attended an "invisible college" devoted to teaching magic and subsequently becoming headmaster. Haddo soon founded the Antichrist, a student marked as a baby by Haddo with a distinctive scar who was subsequently manipulated into accepting his destiny through various adventures against an arch-nemesis portrayed by Haddo himself. The Antichrist came to learn the truth behind Haddo's manipulations and was driven mad, so he went into a rampage on the college and massacred its students and faculty. Haddo was decapitated by the Antichrist, who took his still-living head with him. Haddo's living head then spent the next decade in a cage in the Antichrist's house, while the Antichrist medicated himself with antipsychotic pills, and tried to put-off his eventual role in the Apocalypse.

The Antichrist was eventually confronted by Mina Murray and Orlando. God, in the form of a woman named Mary, then intervened by turning Haddo's Antichrist into a chalk drawing, preventing the Apocalypse and saving mankind. Haddo's head was taken away by God/Mary Poppins to the Blazing World.

About a year later, when Jack Dakkar and Mina were investigating the Blazing World's suspicious activities following Jimmy Bond's nuclear attack, they stumbled across Haddo's decapitated head still in its cage. Frightened by her sudden reappearance, the head begged her to leave him alone.

This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during its lifetime. The list is in chronological order.

    Gato Class Submarine
    Keel Laid October 1 1941 - Launched June 21 1942

Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each name of the ship (for example, Bushnell AG-32 / Sumner AGS-5 are different names for the same ship so there should be one set of pages for Bushnell and one set for Sumner). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each name and/or commissioning period. Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.

It was founded in 1899 by Henry G. Morse (1850–2 June 1903), [note 1] an engineer noted in connection with bridge design and construction and senior partner of Morse Bridge Company. [1] The original plan was to build a shipyard on Staten Island, thus the name of the company. [2] Plans to acquire a site failed and, after exploration as far south as Virginia with special attention being paid to the Delaware River area, a location in the southern part of Camden, New Jersey, was chosen instead. [3] Site selection specifically considered the needs of the planned application of bridge building practices of prefabrication and assembly line production of ships in covered ways. [4] Construction of the plant began in July 1899 and was so rapid that the keel of the first ship was laid November 1900. [1] That ship, contract number 1, was M. S. Dollar, later to be modified as an oil tanker and renamed J. M. Guffey. [5] [note 2] Two of the first contracts were for passenger ships that were among the largest then being built in the United States: #5 for Mongolia and #6 for Manchuria. [6] Morse died after securing contracts for 20 ships. He was followed as president by De Coursey May. [1]

On November 27, 1916, a special meeting of the company's stockholders ratified sale of the "fifteen million dollar plant" to a group of companies composed of American International Corporation, International Mercantile Marine Co., W. R. Grace and Company and the Pacific Mail Steamship Company. [7] [note 3]

New York Ship's unusual covered ways produced everything from aircraft carriers, battleships, and luxury liners to barges and car floats.

During World War I, New York Ship expanded rapidly to fill orders from the U.S. Navy and the Emergency Fleet Corporation. A critical shortage of worker housing led to the construction of Yorkship Village, a planned community of 1,000 brick homes designed by Electus Darwin Litchfield and financed by the War Department. Yorkship Village is now the Fairview section of the City of Camden.

New York Ship's World War II production included all nine Independence-class light carriers (CVL), built on Cleveland-class light cruiser hulls the 35,000-ton battleship USS South Dakota (BB-57) and 98 LCTs (Landing Craft, Tank), many of which took part in the D-Day landings at Normandy.

After World War II, a much-diminished New York Ship subsisted on a trickle of contracts from the United States Maritime Administration and the U.S. Navy. In 1959 the yard launched the NS Savannah, the world's first nuclear powered merchant ship. The yard launched its last civilian vessel (SS Export Adventurer) in 1960, and its last naval vessel, USS Camden, was ordered in 1967. The company's final completed submarine was USS Guardfish (SSN-612) , which had been ordered in the early 1960s, but construction was halted from 1963 to 1965 because of the loss of the USS Thresher. Guardfish was commissioned in December 1967.

In 1968, lacking new naval orders, NYS ceased operations. USS Pogy (SSN-647) , then under construction, was towed to Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for completion.

Haddo Babies

There's a very special couple of days coming up this weekend as we celebrate the 70th anniversary renuion of the the Haddo Babies.

Part of Haddo House operated as a maternity hospital during World War II - 1259 children were born there during that period. Many were born to local Aberdeenshire women, but a significant number of evacuees from Glasgow and even as far afield as London gave birth there.

This weekend we're holding two days of events celebrating the history of the Haddo Babies and getting together Haddo Babies and their families for a grand reunion.

On Saturday 8 August, there will be a talk for visitors telling the story of Haddo’s stint as a maternity hospital followed by a short tour of some of the rooms associated with the Haddo babies. The talks are at 11.30am, 1.30 and 3.30pm. Then on Sunday 9 August, there’s a family day celebration especially for anyone born at Haddo House, and their families.

Anyone born at Haddo between 1939 and 1945 gets in free on Sunday 9 August. If you or a member of your family was a Haddo Baby and you'd like some more information about Haddo Maternity Hospital (or if you have photos, stories or anecdotes about the Haddo Babies) then please contact [email protected]

If you'd like to book on any of this weekend's tours then you can book online at www.nts.org.uk or call the house on 0844 493 2179.

Two Days of Summer

After what seems like an endless year of damp, rain and drizzle, we've actually had a few gorgeous sunny summer days this week- and it's forecast to stay dry for the last week of the holidays as well.

The sun means that we've started seeing lots of butterflies in the flower meadow again, found a couple of cream spotted ladybirds around the lake, and the Doolies are full of grasshoppers churring in the longer grass- hard to see but if you listen very carefully and follow the sound you might be able to catch a glimpse of them before they jump away! We had an extra treat on Saturday as well as this lovely Osprey with a massive fish in its talons cruised over the lake.

The park, gardens and playground are open all day every day- we can get quite busy on sunny days at the moment (especially early Sunday afternoons) so why not think about coming over in the morning or even in the evening after dinner if you don't want to wait for a parking space.


Oliver Haddo

Oliver Haddo was an English occultist, ceremonial magician and writer, who was born in 1875 and allegedly died in 1947.

Oliver Haddo was educated at Eton and left Oxford University in 1896, where he had been an intimate friend of Dr. Frank Hurrell. After studying medicine in Paris, Oliver eventually became disillusioned with the limitations of science, and became obsessed with the mastery of magic. His goal was to create life, using ancient and occult secrets. He began experimenting with magic in the castle Skene, his ancestral home, about three miles from the village of Venning in Staffordshire, England.

Needing the life blood of a virgin to create life, in 1908 Haddo used supernatural means to seduce an art student named Margaret Dauncey. The two were married and Haddo took her back to his castle. There, Haddo murdered her to complete his experiments. Margaret's former fiance, Arthur Burdon and his mentor, Dr Porhoët, attempted to save Margaret, but fail. Arthur did, however, succeed in apparently killing Haddo. He narrowly escaped the fire at his Staffordshire estate, and was able to continue his studies in the occult.

In 1910, Oliver Haddo came to the attentions of the League when their member, occult detective Thomas Carnacki had visions of Haddo convening to plot the creation of a Moonchild destined to bring forth the end of the world. Haddo encountered Orlando, Allan Quatermain and Carnacki when they stumbled into his circle of magicians. In response to Carnacki's accusations, Haddo pointed out to him and his colleagues that what Carnacki saw either is wrong, or has not happened yet. In fact, Carnacki inadvertently gave Haddo a crucial piece of information that they need to create the Moonchild.

During the post-war era, Haddo wrote the On the Descent of Gods based on his collective research on the history of the paranormal. Reportedly, Haddo died destitute in Hastings in 1947. However, Haddo's spirit lived on and possessed Kosmo Gallion, and from there created the Cult of Gallion to continue his plan for the Antichrist.

The Antichrist was eventually confronted by Mina Murray and Orlando. God, in the form of a woman named Mary, then intervened by turning Haddo's Antichrist into a chalk drawing, preventing the Apocalypse and saving mankind. Haddo's head was taken away by God/Mary Poppins, and never seen again.

Haddo had blue eyes, a heavy face, large hands and smoked cigars. Haddo describes his family history thus:

"In my origin I am more to be compared with Denis Zachaire or with Raymond Lully. My ancestor, George Haddo, came to Scotland in the suite of Anne of Denmark, and when James I, her consort, ascended the English throne, he was granted the estates in Staffordshire which I still possess. My family has formed alliances with the most noble blood of England, and the Merestons, the Parnabys, the Hollingtons, have been proud to give their daughters to my house."

Haddo demonstrated his magic abilities in a number of ways. He could apparently command snakes by speaking to them in Arabic. He also proved that he was immune to the venom of one of the most poisonous snakes in the world and able to heal himself of minor wounds. Haddo seemed to be capable of appearing and disappearing in rooms as though he were able to teleport. He also had the ability to mesmerise people, and give them visions of hell. As an occult scientist, he also managed to create life, in the form of nightmarish semi-humanoid creatures in glass tubes. In addition to his knowledge of magic and medicine, Haddo was also a skilled hunter and marksman and could speak Arabic.

USS Dale (DLG-19) on the launching ways at New York Ship in July 1962. Completed as a large guided missile destroyer in 1963, she served until 1994, being sunk as a target in 2000.

As naval contracts for new construction or conversion work dried up in the mid-1960’s, the shipyard found it increasingly hard to maintain its employee base of skilled yard workers.

As government contracts continued to dwindle, along with increased competition from foriegn shipyards for scarce private merchant construction, “The Yard” was forced to begin laying off skilled yard employees by the mid-1960’s.

The last nuclear submarine built at New York Ship, USS Pogy (SSN-647), was launched in June 1967, and towed across the Delaware River for completion at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. Like her sister boats USS Pollack (SSN-603) and USS Haddo (SSN-604) which were completed later, all served with distinction through the Cold War and into the 1990’s.

The last naval ship completed at New York Ship: USS Camden (AOE-2). She went out of service after 38 years in September 2005.

The last ship completed at New York Ship was a large replenishment oiler, appropriately named USS Camden (OE-2). With her completion, New York Shipbuilding Corporation closed its doors in October 1967.


History and heritage of Aberdeenshire

Scotland’s rich heritage spans the length and breadth of the nation, from Shetland to Dumfries and Galloway. Hundreds of fantastic, historic properties from prehistoric dwellings to castles, abbeys and cathedrals tell the story of Scotland and the people who have called it home. Visitors to Aberdeenshire, known as Scotland’s castle and whisky country, have the opportunity to explore both the dramatic coastline and the wide open rolling countryside found inland.

Stunning architecture

This is an area that has a rich prehistoric and historic heritage and it is home to a number of intriguing Historic Environment Scotland (HES) sites that offer a fascinating insight into the past.

HES cares for the largest number of historic visitor attractions in the country, holding the key to more than 5,000 years of Scottish history and culture. These attractions offer great days out for both young and old, with lots to see and do. This area is home to 23 HES properties including six castles and eight significant stone sites.

Huntly Castle, the most visited HES property in this area, is the ancient seat of the Gordons and is remarkable for both its stunning architecture and stirring history. The castle served as a baronial residence for five centuries and underwent several transformations before reaching its present form. The surviving remains at the site tell the story of the development of the Scottish castle from the motte and bailey of the 12th century, through the tower-house castle of the later Middle Ages, to the stately stone palace of the 17th century.

In terms of historical significance, Huntly Castle certainly holds a position in Scottish history. The castle gave shelter to Robert the Bruce during his struggle with England in the early 14th century, and the first stone castle on the site witnessed the height of the struggle between the Stewart king, James II, and the over-powerful Black Douglas family. The grandeur of the castle and the importance of the Gordons meant that royalty, and others of distinction, often visited and enjoyed its splendid architecture which features many impressive characteristics including fine heraldic sculptures and inscribed stone riezes.

Present-day visitors can also enjoy these aspects of the castle and interpretative displays bring the site to life. There is the opportunity to take away a memento from your visit with a gift from the shop and even enjoy a picnic in the grounds.

Not far south from Huntly Castle, open during the summer months, is the popular Kildrummy Castle. Although ruined, there is still an atmosphere of confidence and also serenity. It is not known who built the castle and when, but evidence points to an earl of Mar and a date somewhere in the middle of the 13th century.

Throughout its long and distinguished history Kildrummy was never far from the political spotlight. During the wars with England in the early 14th century the castle gave shelter to the Bruce family and its strength was tested on several occasions. It was with John Erskine’s ill-fated Jacobite risings in 1715 that Kildrummy’s story came to an end. At this time it was abandoned as a fortress and residence, and the ruins are now all that remain.

Pictish heritage

Further inland, with a remote moorland setting, is Corgarff Castle. The impression that Corgarff is something out of the ordinary is confirmed as you draw near and the 18th-century star-shaped perimeter wall surrounding the tower is revealed. Many tower houses were seen as old fashioned by the 1700s and Corgarff would probably have been left to decay had it not been for its important strategic position.

Notable in the castle’s history is the horrific tragedy of 1571 when 24 people died in a fire this story is remembered in the ballad Edom o’ Gordon. Today the castle stands in beautiful, tranquil countryside, offering a reflective insight into the area’s past. With such a setting sturdy footwear is recommended for visitors as they enjoy the interpretive signage around the site.

Noted for its highly-ornamental gatehouse, Tolquhon Castle is one of the more picturesque castles in the Grampian countryside. Although a noble residence for over 500 years, the present ruins are largely the hallmark of William Forbes, seventh lord of Tolquhon. In 1584 he instigated a comprehensive rebuilding programme at the site and following its completion six years later he had a house that was one of the finest of its day.

Sadly William did not have long to enjoy his new house as he died in 1596: he had built an elaborate monumental tomb in Tarves Kirkyard, which is one of the most noteworthy monuments of its kind in Scotland with a interesting mixture of Gothic and Renaissance elements. Both the castle and the tomb are open to the public all year round, telling a remarkable family history which visitors can reflect on with a picnic in the castle grounds.

Picardy Symbol Stone, eight miles south of Huntly

The importance of the Pictish heritage of the Aberdeenshire area is demonstrated with a number of significant stone sites. The Picardy Symbol Stone, eight miles south of Huntly, is one of the oldest, simplest Pictish symbol stones possibly from as early as the 7th century. Just north of Kirkton, the Dyce Symbol Stones are also worth a visit. One has the older type of incised symbols and other has symbols accompanied by a cross and decoration.

Just north west of Inverurie is the Brandsbutt Symbol Stone, an early example with an ogham inscription, and there is also the Maiden Stone which is a 9th-century cross slab which bears a cross on one side and Pictish symbols on the other.

These are just a few of the sites in the care of HES in the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire area. The rich built heritage of the area is really outstanding and with so much to see and explore you are guaranteed never to have a dull moment.
