USS Hubbard During WWII

[Hubbard Photo]
[Back] Hubbard's commissioning, 6 March 1944. The ship's first Commanding Officer was Lieutenant Commander L.C. Mabley. After commissioning, Hubbard carried out shakedown training from Bermuda, then escorted a tanker along the east coast. She then returned to Norfolk, where her original torpedo tubes were replaced by 40mm antiaircraft guns (her 1.1" AA guns were also replaced by 40mm, probably at the same time the torpedo tubes were removed).
