Quote from: caberney on December 14, 2020, 10:19:00 PMYour question about INT. O. is Intelligence Officers. I was able to research Seaman Swindle's Career by checking out ship muster on Ancestory. I went to the local library and they hooked me up with the resources. You don't necessarily have to got to the national archives, especially now. You have the guys serves number. If you want or need help let me know.
