Ens. Andrew Simons served on submarine chaser SC 296.
This set of photos, submitted by his son, Carlton Simons, shows images from the post-war service of SC 296, at which time the chaser traveled from Charleston, SC to Seattle, WA. Points along the way included Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; the Panama Canal; Corinto, Nicaragua; Acapulco, Pichilinque and Magdalena, Mexico; San Diego and San Francisco.
Thanks to Carlton Simons for submitting the image scans to The Subchaser Archives
