USS Hubbard During WWII

[Hubbard Photo]
[Back] Hubbard's construction - she is shown moored with Hayter (DE 212) while fitting out at Charleston; the two ships were launched the same day. Hubbard was sponsored by Mrs. Helen L. Hubbard, widow of Commander Hubbard. The original captions on this page are puzzling - the photo captioned "Commissioning March 6, 1944" was clearly taken well before her completion and commissioning. Also, most references list both DE 211 and DE 212 as being laid down 11 August 1943 and launched 11 November 1943, not in June 1943 as indicated in the original caption. [Next]
