"OFFICIAL" Hawaii thread!! Post your Hawaii notes here. Fancy Serials, Stars, Short Snorte

Ok. I labeled the thread "Official" so I hope people post. I love Hawaii notes. I know alot of you like them as well. I have conversations every week about Hawaii notes through PM's with different forum members. I collect every type and style when it comes to these.

I am hoping to add more short snorters this year. I love researching the names, ships, ect.

I also have a ton of census data on these. I keep a census on Stars, AC, ZB, FC blocks, Canceled notes, Errors, Late plates, Sheets, Low serials, Fancy Serials, starting to do Short Snorters with famous names, Radars, Repeaters, and anything else interesting. If you ever have anything to share please contact me. Also if you ever need help with something contact me and I'll try my best.

If you have a story to go with your notes I would love to hear it.



This first note is one of my favorites. I bought it Feb of this year. I had alot of fun researching this note. I love the embossed seal! It was fun playing with the LED light. I did the best I could with the pics. The bottom pic of the map shows where they left a small atoll Eniwetok (Marshall Islands) and headed toward Manus in the Admirality islands. The USS LST 669 landed October 4th 1944 at the Admirality islands. That trip is the one where they crossed the equator. My note puts them at the equator Oct. 2nd 1944. Time 0500. That is so cool.

The USS Deuel (APA-160) was launched September 9th, 1944 by Oregon Shipbuilding Corp., Portland. It was under a Maritime Commission contract; sponsored by Mrs. J. Himmelright transferred to the Navy October 13th, 1944 and commissioned the same day, Captain D. G. McMillan was in command.

Deuel sailed from San Diego November 25th, 1944, and after training at Pearl Harbor staged at Saipan for the invasion of Iwo Jima. On February 19th, 1945 she helped land the 5th Marines in the initial assault. She stood off the island for 6 days, embarking casualties for transportation to hospitals at Guam. After replacing her boats at Florida Island, and training at Espiritu Santo, she sailed from Ulithi April 4th to transport support troops to Okinawa where she embarked casualties for transfer to Saipan.

From May 28th, to August 27th, 1945 the USS Deuel operated in the Philippines on transport and training duty. She carried Army troops to Japan for occupation duty in September, then returned to San Pedro Bay, Leyte to embark more troops and a civil administration party which she landed at Kure between the 5th and 11th of October. Assigned to "Magic Carpet" duty, she carried servicemen from the Pacific home to the west coast until January 1946, then sailed for the east coast where she was placed out of commission May 17th, 1946, berthed at Norfolk.

Another Valentines day gift from my wife. The seller of the note wrote a letter to go along with it. I thought that was awesome. I am still trying to find a Doug Carter WW2 Pilot out there. My wife contacted the seller and asked if he had any more info or photo's of anyone on the note. She also asked if he had anything on Doug Carter or a photo that we could buy from him, but he didn't. I can only make out one name on this one. If you feel like taking a shot at it I would love the help.

Near solid fancy serial number L77777771C Short Snorter note. I found out with some help that E M 2/C means electricians mate second class petty officer. MM 1/C is a machinist mate first class petty officer. I fell in love when I saw this note. The seller said he had more but never got back to me. Along with this one he had L77777701C and L77777709C. I passed on those. I was hoping he had the solid but I never heard a thing after all the notes that were listed sold.

John F. Kennedy’s older brother Joe signed one of the notes in the largest known roll ever. It consists of 400-500 notes taped together. When the notes are all rolled up they measure 15 inches thick.


*************If anyone here has anything else they would like to share I would love to hear it.***************

Thanks

    Dang Jim, the first two of your three are two of three I need to upgrade. That got my heart pumping as I scrolled down, first seeing one then another. Do you need a non-mule to go with the mule?

    I didn't know there were that many fancy serials left for Emergency notes. Last week a 5-0 binary $10 N. Africa was in Lyns auction (CPMX); I think it was a 5-0.

    Did your victory over Japan note come from a LK auction? I remember bidding on a note like that, same block, raw (if I remember correctly), and the stamp was in the same place. I put in a bid that "should" have won the auction but something happened and my bid was not taken. In either case that is a VERY cool note!

    Was this an ebay find? This is also one of the coolest Hawaii notes i've seen!

  • It is my favorite note. Yes I did buy it off ebay. I would love to find another like it. I did see a LST 898 note last week on ebay but I lost on it image I wish I would have bid higher. Did anyone here wind up with it?

    I also wanted to add that I really like the Victory over Japan stamped notes as well. I will hunt one of those down eventually. Thanks for posting yours Bill. If anyone spots one could you please let me know. I started a census on them hoping I can narrow down how many may have been done.

    I'm glad everyone is helping out. I find the emergency notes fascinating, and with all of the varieties I'll never get bored with them.

    My newest note thanks to Bert!! This one might be cursed image

    Palmyra Island was discovered by "accident" one night in 1798 by American sea captain Edmond Fanning

    Palmyra is officially listed by the U.S. government as an island, but is actually an atoll. The difference between an atoll and an island is that an atoll is formed by the growth of coral around the rim of an ancient ocean volcano that has sunk below the surface of the sea

    8/15/41 was the official opening the air station at Palmyra. Palmyra Atoll Airfield (P16, PLPA), Palmyra Atoll 5.88 North / 162.08 West is near the very center of the Pacific Ocean or about 1000 nautical miles south-southwest of Hawaii in the North Pacific Ocean (or about one-half of the way from Hawaii to American Samoa). The island measures approximately a mile and a half in length by a half mile wide.

    In 1934, Palmyra Atoll was placed under the Department of the Navy. When the U.S. Navy took over to use the atoll as a Naval Air Station on August 15, 1941, the atoll was owned privately by American citizens, including Hawaiians. Although the private-ownership status of the island was eventually resolved in favor of the Fullard-Leo family, the island was still used as a naval air facility during World War II in the Pacific. Palmyra also became a base of operations for air attacks against Japan. As a result, military relics can be found in abundance there such as old gun emplacements, ammunition and fuel dumps, abandoned war equipment, machine-gun bunkers, underground tunnels and buildings, as well as what is left of the old landing strip, lending a timeless and ghostly feeling to the place.

    Hal Horton, a former Navy officer was stationed on Palmyra from 1942 to 1944 and had this to say about the island:

    "Once one of our patrol planes went down near the island. We searched and searched but didn’t find so much as a bolt or piece of metal. It was weird. Like they’d dropped off the edge of the earth. Another time, a plane took of from the runway, climbed to a couple hundred feet, and turned in the wrong direction. They were supposed to go north and they went south instead. It was broad daylight. We never could figure it out. There were two men aboard that plane. We never saw them again. We had some very bad luck on that island. Old salts in the Pacific called it the Palmyra Curse. (The island)...is very small. You (could) fly over it at ten thousand feet and not see it if there (were) a few clouds in the sky. Once we heard a plane over head trying to find us, but he crashed in the drink before he could find the runway. We didn’t get to the poor guy fast enough. Sharks found him first."

    A June 30, 1944 Navy layout of the facilities on Palmyra depicted a total of 3 runways. The earliest aircraft accident to be recorded on the Palmyra airfield was in June 16, 1942. A U.S. Army Air Force Douglas C-53 (41-20069) flew from Honolulu to Palmyra, where it was damaged beyond repair.

    Primarily, Palmyra functioned as a refueling station during World War II for long-range air patrols against Japan and extended submarines missions in the Pacific. The island itself was attacked only once when a Japanese submarine surfaced offshore and began shelling the beach and a dredging barge with it’s deck gun. A five-inch gun battery on the island drove the submarine off.

    When Hawaii achieved statehood in 1959, Palmyra, which had been officially part of the City & County of Honolulu, was explicitly separated from the new state as an Incorporated Territory of the U.S., administered by U.S. Department of Interior.




    A book called "And the Sea Will Tell", is based on a true story of a double murder that took place on Palmyra Atoll in 1974.

    The "Palmyra Curse". According to this tale, although Palmyra appears to be a tropical island paradise, there also seems to be a supernatural pattern of disaster and near-disaster associated with the place. While many people who have ventured to Palmyra have described it as nothing short of a true paradise here on Earth, quite a few sailors who visited the island in the time before and after the murders took place have commented on the sense of "something not being quite right" on Palmyra and speak in cloaked terms of a malevolent aura and a foreshadowing of doom that the island seems to possess. Listen to Richard Taylor, a yachtsman who spent time on Palmyra in 1977 and who had this to say in his testimony at the murder trial:

    I had a foreboding feeling about the island. It was more than just the fact that it was a ghost-type island. It was more than that. It seemed to be an unfriendly place to be. I've been on a number of atolls, but Palmyra was different. I can't put my finger on specifically why, but it was not an island that I enjoyed being on. I think other people have had difficulties on that island.

    Norman Sanders, another yachtsman who conducted geological experiments on Palmyra and who testified at the double murder trial, had this to say about the island:
    Palmyra is one of the last uninhabited islands in the Pacific. The island is a very threatening place. It is a hostile place. I wrote in my log: "Palmyra, a world removed from time, the place where even vinyl rots. I have never seen vinyl rot anywhere else."

    He also wrote that "Palmyra will always belong to itself, never to man. It is a very forbidding place."

    You're doing some nice work Tom. The story you found on Lieutenant Robert Lawson and LST 669 is one of multiple millions of storys associated with these notes. One part that I pick up on was where it says on Oct 20th, 2 1/2 miles from shore the doors opened and the amphibious tanks were unloaded. There must be tens of thousands of storys having to do with these tanks. What an idea, take a giant chunk of steel in the form of a tank and make a boat out of it.

    A couple years ago there was an episode on the History or Discovery channel (Deep Sea Divers?) where they dove in the ocean, I'm thinking Normandy, and found some of these tanks on the bottom, propellers intact. They showed some old army footage of how they were supposed to work; flexable (flimsy) sides that would be raised for flotation. I guess it worked ok in calm waters but on D Day the water was not calm and most sunk. I would think a soldier would normally feel safer being in a tank compared to running on foot but it's hard to imagine what was going through their minds while inside these just before the LST doors opened.

    My thoughts are just wandering now, and I'm thinking how peoples perception of time varies. To a teenager or 20 sum year old WWII happened a very long time ago, almost ancient history. It was raging on ten years before I was born, but I think of it as though it was just the day before yesterday. There are still a lot of people around that lived through the war. It really was not very long ago; with todays lifestyles we need these reminders of yesterday.

    Thanks Bill. I like the Lieutenant Robert Lawson story because he was on the LST at the time when the note was typed. He may have typed it for all I know. When the 669 left Eniwetok (Marshall Islands) and headed toward the Admirality islands they crossed the equator.

    I will never get tired of searching these snorters. I hope down the road I can find more LST 669 stories/info

    Tom, in your list of low serial numbers you can add $1 C00000071C in 65EPQ.

    Has anyone seen a serial #1 or in the cases where the block did not start at 1, the first note of the block?

  • Thanks Bill I added it to the list.

    Before I bumped this the other day I added a few low serials, the info on the VJ notes (how many stamps and where they are located) and another error note.

    I sat down the other day and wrote every name that I could make out on my snorters and tried to find a match on Myshortsnorterproject.com. They have a master list of the names on the snorters that people submitted that you can compare your notes to.

    I will add the names on here eventually. And I would like to post my notes on the site.
