Volume 1B

"B" Ships

The original Volume 1 of DANFS, containing ships with "A" and "B" names, is long out of print. A new Volume 1A, containing "A" ships only, has been published, but no listing of "B" ships is currently available. To fill this gap, we have made a special effort to transcribe the entire "B" section of the original Volume 1. By placing all the "B" histories online, these records are once again readily accessible to the public, without the need to search for a rare copy of the old Volume 1 publication.

These histories have been transcribed by Larry Jewell with HTML markup and final formatting by Andrew Toppan.
