Lloyd Thomas
(DD-764: dp. 2,425; 1. 390'9"; b. 41'; dr. 18'6"; s. 35 k.; cpl. 336; a. 6 5", 12 40mm., 10 20mm., .', 21" tt., 2 dct., 6 dcp.; cl. Gearing)

Lloyd Thomas (DD-764) was laid down by Bethlehem Steel Co., Shipbuilding Division, San Francisco, Calif., 26 March 1944; launched 5 October 1945; sponsored by Mrs. Lloyd Thomas, widow of Lieutenant (jg.) Thomas and commissioned 21 March 1947, Comdr. J. I. Cone in command.

After shakedown off San Diego and a training cruise in Hawaiian waters, the new destroyer departed the west coast 16 January 1948 for a round-the-world training and good will voyage. In company With the mighty aircraft carrier Valley Forge (CV-45) and three other destroyers Lloyd Thomae visited Sidney, Australia, Hong Kong, and Tsingtao, China. After Tsingtao, Lloyd Thomas, William C. Lauwe (DD-763), and Valley Forge proceeded westward, touching Singapore, Ceylon, ,and Saudi Arabia transited the Suez Canal and the Straits of Gibraltar, then steamed north for calls at Bergen, Norway, and Southampton, England. The formation left England 13 March 1948, spent 5 days in New York City, and arrived at home port San Diego 11 June, having steamed 46,168 nautical miles during the 5-month voyage.

During the rest of 1948, the destroyer trained reserves. In 1949. after conversion to a hunter-killer type destroyer at San Francisco Navy Yard, the ship joined the Atlantic Fleet at Newport, R.I., in October and steamed north with the 2d Task Fleet for cold weather .exercises in the Arctic

Returning home from the Arctic. the versatile destroyer operated between Bermuda and Puerto Rico during the first 2 months of 1950. She was re designated DDE-764 on 4 March 1950. Following 4 months of antisubmarine exercises and a midshipmen cruise early in July, the ship departed Newport 15 July for a 5-day call at Koykevik, Icelend. Returning from Iceland in early August, she left Newport for Norfolk 6 September in company with three other destroyers. Just off Norfolk the destroyers rendezvoused with Coral Sea (CVB 43) and escorted the big carrier to the Mediterranean. After rigorous operations v.ith the 6th Fleet and calls at Sardinia, Sicily, and Golfo Juan, France, Lloyd Thomas and her sister destroyers departed Gibraltar 1 November to escort Midway (CVB41) home. They arrived Norfolk 9 November and the destroyers made Newport the next day.

During the next 2 years, the ship conducted antisubmarine operations in the Caribbean and made yearly voyages to the Mediterranean. The 1952 voyage included a NATO amphibious landing on the coast of Denmark (operation "Mainbrace") and port calls in Scotland in England. During 1953 she again operated with NATO, this time in the Mediterranean, and visited Cannes and Naples.

In early 1954, Lloyd Thomas checked out the new canteddeck carrier Antietam (CVS-36) in the intricacies of antisubmarine warfare. From August to January 1955 the destroyer again operated with NATO units in the Mediterranean. Except for a quick run to Lisbon, Lloyd Thomas spent the rest of 1955 operating in home waters. The highpoint of 1956 was a summer midshipman cruise to Spain and the British Isles in company with the famous battlewagon Wisconsin (BB-64).

On 4 January 1957 the ship departed Newport with Destroyer Division 242 and submarine Batfl`h (SS-310) for South America to acquaint our good neighbors in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, and Chile with the newest techniques in antisubmarine warfare. Returning to Newport from Chile 18 March, she conducted local operations until departing 12 August for 5 months of patrol duty in the Mediterranean and Red Seas.

She spent most of 1958 in the Caribbean, with operation "Springboard" that spring and refresher training during September and October. In 1959, besides hunter-killer training off Norfork and a summer midshipman cruise to Quebec, Lloyd Thomas again operated with NATO in European waters. During 1960, the ship returned to the Mediterranean, spending June through September with the 6th Fleet. Between exercises she visited Palma de Majorca, Barcelona, and Naples.

From March to December 1961, Lloyd Thomas underwent a FRAM II conversion, a rehabilitation and modernization program designed to add years of service to de stroyers built shortly after World War II. After leaving New York Naval Shipyard she commenced 6 weeks of refresher training at Guantanamo Bay. Redesignated DD-764 on 30 June 1962, the destroyer operated along the east coast until departing 7 September .1962 for a 6-month tour to the Mediterranean and Middle East. During her duty with the Middle East Force in January and February 1963, the ship visited Ceylon, crossed the equator, and called at the Indian Naval Base in Visakhaptnam. She arrived Newport early in March and resumed operations from her home port.

The ship returned to the Mediterranean in in My 1964 for the Joint French American amphibious operation "Fairgame II." Then after a brief call at Athens, she spent June and July in the Near East, showing the flag and promoting good will in the nations bordering the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.

From 10 October to 19 November 1964, Lloyd Thomas escorted 28,000 marines from Little Creek to the coast of Spain during operation "Steelpike I", the largest peacetime amphibious operation ever conducted. "Steelpike I" demonstrated that the Navy could quickly and convincingly thwart aggression anyplace in the world.

During 1965 the destroyer, after installing new electronic gear to update her antisubmarine capabilities, trained in Guantanamo, then participated in the late summer antisubmarine operation, CANUS-SILEX, with the Royal Canadian Navy in the western Atlantic. On 15 February 1986 she deployed from Newport again to the Mediterranean. Here during the ensuing months she made an important contribution to the mighty 6th Fleet's influence for peace and order.

Returning to Newport 8 July, the destroyer entered drydock for 3 weeks beginning 29 July, at Bethlehem Shipyard, Boston. Resuming operations on 22 August, she was plane guard for Wasp (CVS-18) during the recovery phase of the Gemini II operation, 4 through 18 November.

On 1 March 1967 Lloyd Thomas, with the rest of Destroyer Squadron l0, departed Newport for another cruise to the Mediterranean. During this deployment the Arab Israeli tensions rose to war level; and the 6th Fleet, including Lloyd Thomas was a vital force in keeping the hostilities localized.

The ship arrived back at Newport 20 July and operated out of her home port the remainder of the year. On 7 May 1968, after a brief tour of exercises in the Caribbean, DD-764 entered Boston for overhaul. Back in full fighting trim in the fall, she returned to local operations out of Newport into 1969.

Lloyd Thomas DD- 764 - History

My favorite ship was my tincan, a FRAM II Gearing class can. The USS Lloyd Thomas (DD-764) was launched as an all-gun DD in 1947, then changed designator in the 1950's as a DDE. She had mount 52 replaced by a trainable MK 15 hedgehog mount. She was again designated a DD in the 1960s when she received a FRAM II configuration. Sometimes mistaken as the Carpenter class (the Carpenter and Lloyd Thomas looked nothing alike). The six ships Lloyd Thomas class consisted of her, Keppler (DD-765), F T
Berry
(DD-858), Norris (DD-859), McCaffery (DD-860) and Harwood (DD-841).

This project took me over 2.5 years to build. It was my first large scale (1/96 scale) attempt of building the "LT" after converting a "Blue-devil" 1/144 into a FRAM II Gearing. I bought the FRAM kit from BaD ships and built the hull from the ribs up. However, I scrapped everything from the weather deck up and built it from scratch with evergreen plastic and plans from Tincan Sailors of the USS Keppler (DD-765).

I made the MK 25 21 inch fixed torpedo tubes and torpedoes from scraps reconfigured John Haynes* very* *fine* fixed hedgehog mount into the MK 15 trainable mount , antennae from piano wire, tiny washers and jeweler's "thing-a-ma-jigs" and lifelines using John Haynes USN stanchions and very fine piano wire coated with "gun-blue" to prevent rust.

I'd like the thank Tincan sailors, William Upshaw and everyone from "Model Warships Underway", John Haynes, BaD ships and the crew of the old Lloyd Thomas for so much technical help. Below are some pictures from start to finish.

A Tin Can Sailors
Destroyer History

Built in Seattle, Washington, the ROWAN was commissioned 31 March 1945 and was en route to the Philippines when the war ended. With the JOHN R. PIERCE (DD-753) and COGHLAN (DD-606), she changed course for Okinawa. Peacetime operations on the West Coast and in the Far East ended in August 1950 when the ROWAN entered the Korean War to screen carriers and support operations at Inchon and Wonsan. One of her more memorable actions off Wonsan occurred in February 1952 when she moved in to cover the KYES (DD-787), which was under heavy attack by shore batteries. After thirty-five minutes, she had silenced three of the batteries, but took a hit that caused considerable damage to her 40-mm Mount 43.

In March 1953 the ROWAN returned to the Korean war zone and while shelling targets in the Wonsan area, she received five direct hits causing injuries to ten of her crew. Back in the Western Pacific (WestPac) in May 1954, she found typhoons to be as much of a threat as the North Koreans. She was patrolling the Taiwan Strait in late August at the start of the Quemoy and Matsu Crisis. On her seventh WESTPAC deployment, she served with the SOUTHERLAND (DDR-743), GURKE (DD-783), and HENDERSON (DD-785) and visited Djakarta, Indonesia, and Singapore. In August 1956, she visited Australia and operated with the carriers ESSEX (CV-9), BOXER (CV-21), BENNINGTON (CV-20), BON HOMME RICHARD (CV-31), and SHANGRI LA (CV-38). While on Taiwan Patrol, she took a beating from Typhoon Louise.

A twelfth WestPac cruise and a FRAM I conversion took her up to the spring of 1965 and combat operations in the Qui Nhon area. On the gun line from 17 May until 10 June 1966, she fired thirteen consecutive missions and expended 3,800 rounds of 5-inch ammunition. Antisubmarine warfare exercises, search and rescue duty with the HENRY W. TUCKER (DD-875), another stint on the gun line, screening duty with the RANGER (CVA-61), and providing gun support for the CHICAGO (CG-11) completed her Vietnam tour. She returned to the U.S. with the RANGER, MCCORMICK (DDG-8), MORTON (DD-948), and RICHARD S. EDWARDS (DD-950).

In September 1967 she and the PERKINS (DD-877) headed for Vietnam. On 25 October she relieved the RADFORD (DD-446) on the gun line. Relieved by the PHILIP (DD-498), she moved on to Yankee Station in the Tonkin Gulf for exercises with the WALKE (DD-723) and SABALO (SS-302). In November the ROWAN returned to the Tonkin Gulf with the WALDRON (DD-699), DAMATO (DD-871), and OZBOURN (DD-846). She relieved the J. W. THOMASON (DD-760) and joined the RICHARD S. EDWARDS (DD-950) to fire harassment and interdiction missions north of Qui Nhon.

On 1 February 1968 the ROWAN was in the Sea of Japan when she and the Soviet merchant ship KAPITAN VISLOBOKOV collided with minor damage to the destroyer. Repairs complete in early March, she joined the DEWEY (DLG-14) and later the PREBLE (DLG-15) on picket station. April 1969 found the ROWAN in the Sea of Japan for a fleet build-up in response to North Korea’s downing of a U.S. EC-121 aircraft. Screening and picket duty in the Japan and Yellow seas with the MAHAN (DLG-11) and STERETT (DLG-31) took her into June and duty on the gun line in Nha Trang Harbor pounding enemy locations in the I and II Corps areas. In September she headed for home with the TICONDEROGA (CVA-14), BUCHANAN (DDG-14), and CHEVALIER (DD-805).

The new decade found the ROWAN home-ported in Yokosuka, Japan. She began 1972 on Yankee Station and with the RICHARD B. ANDERSON (DD-786) and LLOYD THOMAS (DD-764) served as escort for the HANCOCK (CVA-19). With the sudden invasion by North Vietnam into South Vietnam, the ROWAN joined the gun line on 7 April. On 9 April she was riding shotgun for the JOHN R. CRAIG (DD-885) off Cap Lay. As the CRAIG began to fire, shore batteries opened up and tore a two-foot hole in her side. The ROWAN’s guns silenced the enemy batteries and covered the damaged ship as she retired. She moved on to support South Vietnamese troops in the Delta area and then led U.S. and Vietnamese ships in the Gulf of Thailand to intercept and destroy a North Vietnamese trawler loaded with arms.

In May the DENNIS J. BUCKLEY (DD-808) relieved the ROWAN, which returned to the DMZ and the gun line. With the PROVIDENCE (CLG-6) and the guided missile destroyer ROBISON (DDG-12), she was back on the gun line in June, conducting nightly raids on North Vietnamese supply routes and depots and daytime surveillance operations. She returned to the gun line on 25 June and later helped support the South Vietnamese counter offensive to retake Quang Tri. Freshly armed with Shrike missiles, the ROWAN joined the NEWPORT NEWS (CA-148), PROVIDENCE, and ROBISON on a strike against Haiphong Harbor. Leaving the harbor, the NEWPORT NEWS and ROWAN sank two North Vietnamese PT boats. The ROWAN spent ten days in September on the gun line and in October joined the BAUSELL (DD-845) for escort duty. During combat operations in November, she served with the RAMSEY (DEG-2), HENRY B. WILSON (DDG-7), and RICH (DD-820) for night raids against targets near Vinh, Dong Ha, and Brandon Bay. In December she and the PARSONS (DDG-33) visited Keelung, Taiwan.

Battle Damage

"Scores of US warplanes and several destroyers pounded targets inside North Vietnam Friday,
carrying into a second day the biggest air and naval onslaught since the 1968 bombing halt.
Countering enemy ground offensives on three fronts, waves of other bombers and destroyers
raked North Vietnamese positions in the northern sector of South Vietnam,
and the US 7th Fleet announced that one of it's ships had been hit.

Spokesmen said the destroyer Lloyd Thomas was hit by enemy artillery and automatic weapons fire
while it was shelling North Vietnamese targets just below the demilitarized zone. Three Americans were wounded
and the ship sustained light damage, the Navy said. It remained on the firing line."
