The American Battleship
Miles M. Mosley
Received an email from Casey Heninger back in 2010 about
his grandfather and his service on the USS Pennsylvania in the 1920's, here is a
little of that communication:
It was nice talking with this morning. Sorry about my email address going
away. Please let me know what info you might need and I will be happy to
send it to you. My grandfather was Miles M. Mosley and was a Boatswain's
Mate on board from 1924-27. He passed away in 1986 and I remember him
mentioning he worked in the turrets loading shells during firing exercises
of the 14" guns. I inherited his pictures and some memorabilia when he
passed away and it has all been digitized. Would be great to see it archived
on the internet.
Feel free to contact me anytime.
The amazing part of this was the attached photos and
details of which I am going to post here.....
