I am just posting this album of my grandfather’s, Phillip B Hutton.  I only know as of now without further researching that he was in the Navy, I have a photo of him in a sailor uniform.  There was a huge framed photo that was always in their home that said “In remembrance of my cruise in the Phillipines.  There were some military patches in the frame and a picture of him in uniform along with a ship.  This is an album of his.  Below is the cover which is black as you can tell and it says Logalbum U.S.S. Raleigh.



There were a lot of these diary pages just loosely inside the cover.



The best that I can make out the writing on this page is as follows:  Copenhagen Denmark. U.S.S. Raleigh July 1924 and on the other side…Copenhagen Denmark 1924.

The best that I can make out what this says is …Jimmy Doran Mack U.S.S. Ral.

I hope that you can make these out.  They are fading.  I would welcome any comments that you may have.

I will add more photos later.


** Since posting this, I received a comment from someone as follows:

The USS Raleigh was a light cruiser that saw action in WWII. She was moored at Pearl Habor on December 7th, 1941 and was hit by one japanese torpedo in her #2 boiler room. There was no loss of life. She was decommissioned at the end of the war, interesting history!
