He had spent most of his life in Coloradocounty, residing in Columbus for the past 15 years. Abrother John Jacobs, died in Galveston lastJanuary.
Aft low pressure The piston and slide valve rods were all fitted with metallic packing to the stuffing boxes, and all pistons fitted with packing rings and springs.
The high-pressure valve was of the piston type, whilst the remaining ones were of the balanced type. With the ships being twin screw, the engines were fitted with a shaft coupling to the crank shaft at the forward end, allowing the engine to be turned end to end to suit either port or starboard side fitting.
The LCT needed lifting onto the deck of the ship, being carried on wedge-shaped support blocks; at the time of launching she was set down on the "launch ways" by simply slacking off bolts in the wedge blocks, allowing the launch way to take the weight.
To carry out a launch, the LST was simply heeled over about 11 degrees by careful flooding of tanks in the hull. This method was used for moving LCT5s from Britain to the Far East, although there seems to be no reference to LST 3 s being used, most being completed late in or after the war.
Even at the end of the war there was a need for more ships able to carry minor landing craft, and two of the LST 3 s then completing were specially fitted to carry LCM 7. They were hoisted on by means of a specially fitted ton derrick; This ton derrick replaced a ton derrick, two of which were the standard fit of the LST 3.
The ton derrick was taller and generally more substantial than the 15 ton one. The LCM 7 s were landed on trolleys fitted with hydraulic jacks.
These ran on rails down each side of the deck, and were hauled to and fro by means of winches. The stowage was filled from fore to aft as each craft was jacked down onto fixed cradles between the rails.
While these ships were able to carry LCMs, they were only able to carry out loading and unloading operations under nearly ideal weather conditions, and therefore could not be used for assault operations; they also lacked the facilities to maintain the landing craft which the Dock Landing Ships provided.
Range was 50—80 miles on 64 gallons. Armament was typically a Bren light machine gun aft; with two Lewis Guns in a port forward position.
They had two Quonset huts erected on the main deck to accommodate 40 officers. Berths on the tank deck berthed an extra men. A bake shop and 16 refrigeration boxes for fresh provisions augmented the facilities normally provided for the crew.
Four extra distilling units were added, and the ballast tanks were converted for the storage of fresh water. Knox, Kentucky, buildings were erected as exact mock-ups of an LST.
Tank crews in training learned how to maneuver their vehicles onto, in and from an LST with these facilities. One of these buildings has been preserved at Ft. Knox for historic reasons and can still be seen.
They participated in the invasions of Sicily Operation HuskyItalyNormandyand southern France in the European Theater and were an essential element in the island-hopping campaigns in the Pacific that culminated in the liberation of the Philippines and the capture of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
Despite the large numbers produced, LSTs were a scarce commodity and Churchill describes the difficulty in retaining sufficient LSTs in the Mediterranean for amphibious work in Italy, and later the logistics of moving large numbers to the eastern theatres, while still supplying the large armies in Europe.
The LST proved to be a remarkably versatile ship. A number of them were converted to become landing craft repair ships ARL. In this design, the bow ramp and doors were removed, and the bow was sealed. Derricks, booms, and winches were added to haul damaged landing craft on board for repairs, and blacksmith, machine, and electrical workshops were provided on the main deck and tank deck.
LSTs putting cargo ashore on one of the invasion beaches, at low tide during the first days of the Invasion of Normandy in June, Barrage balloons are overhead and a US Army " half-track " convoy is forming up on the beach.
They supplemented the many standard LSTs, which removed casualties from the beach after landing tanks and vehicles. They possessed a special advantage in this role, as their size permitted two or three LSTs to go simultaneously alongside an anchored battleship or cruiser to accomplish replenishment more rapidly than standard ammunition ships.
Note additional L-4 type aircraft stowed alongside the deck. In the period 6 June to 26 June Allied fighters controlled by the FDTs resulted in the destruction of 52 enemy aircraft by day, and 24 enemy aircraft by night.
It has been estimated that, in the combined fleets assembled for the war on Japanthe tonnage of landing ships, excluding landing craft, would have exceeded five million tons and nearly all built within four years.
Throughout the war, LSTs demonstrated a remarkable capacity to absorb punishment and survive. Despite the sobriquets "Large Slow Target" and "Large Stationary Target," which were applied to them by irreverent crew members, the LSTs suffered few losses in proportion to their number and the scope of their operations.
Although the LST was considered a valuable target by the enemy, only 26 were lost due to enemy action, and a mere 13 were the victims of weather, reef, or accident.Volume 6: Thirty-five years after the appearance of Volume 5 of Life & Teaching of the Masters of the Far East, ten dusty cartons were discovered in the DeVorss warehouse, some of which held Spalding manuscripts, paper, letters, photographs, and other materials related to this man whose name has been a legend in metaphysical and truth .
