Comments: My father, Paul Mancuso, was one of the 61 Survivors of the USS Hobson Wasp collision. He passed away 2/16/14. I was wondering if there are any other living survivors left? Dad did not speak much about that night. I still have newspaper articles, telegrams to his mother, the watch he was wearing.

Comments: There was an article about The U.S.S. Hobson which
collided with The Aircraft Carrier Wasp. The story
was in The Bergen Record of Northern New Jersey.
They had some of the sailors stories that were on
board the Hobson and also off the Wasp. Anyone that
might have lost family members and are seeking some
information should check out this article. I am
sorry for all of you that lost a family member.

I helped scrub the oil off of the duty radar operator and gave him my bunk for the night. He told me all about it except he couldn't remember everything after being hit on the head by a raft droped from the Wasp. Some how he was picked up by our Whale boat crue and brought aboard our ship. I will never forget that night.

I've only ever had one photo of him in his uniform and was hoping perhaps some fellow shipmates of his had some from his time on the Hobson on which sadly he lost his life.I never had the chance to meet him as he died many years before I was born in 1968 but I remember fondly the stories my grandmother passed onto me. She said all he ever wanted to be from the time he was a kid was a sailor. So badly so that he lied about his age to join the Navy alittle earlier. Any personal knowledge of him or what he did daily on the ship would be greatly appreciated.

He told stories of the Hobson. One time, a bunk below him caught fire. With torpedoes below the bunks, that was a problem. He was taken before the captain, where it was discovered that he was the only man on the ship that didn't smoke. The guy below him was guilty. He managed to steal steaks from the officers mess. He figured out how to wire them to boiler pipes and broil them. He was very popular. I would love to hear any stories. Thanks. His son...

Unit: PHIBLANT [AMPHIBIOUS FORCE-ATLANTIC FLEET

Service or Relationship: NAVY VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: "A Survivor's Story" is not mine but that of a Quartermaster 2nd Class whose name I do not recall. He had written an article published in either ARGOSY or TRUE magazine maybe 50 years ago, but somehow the issue got lost over the years.

His story struck home for two reasons; first, he was sleeping in his bunk in the same compartment as I had on my third Naval Reserve training cruise in 1950 on Ludlow DD438, also a Benson-Livermore class. I remembered quite well the "ladder" [more like a very narrow stairway complete with risers--some ladder!] leading to the head he had to swim up and through UNDER WATER!

Second; I had a similar experience in November, 1952 when my ship Ruchamkin APD89 was rammed by a Texas Co. tanker of 10,000 tons 60 miles off Cape Henry, VA at about 0215h on 11/14. We had taken an Army Recon unit (41 members) aboard at Little Creek two days before to demonstrate the latest in amphibious assault. We had taken them back aboard about 4 hours before. APD's have a troop compartment on each side (in place of weather deck on a DE) and they were assigned to the port compartment. Unfortunately the tanker rammed our port side, but providencially at the after motor/engine room. How much does a 6,000HP electirc motor weigh? Try lifting a six HP motor, then multiply that by 1,000. Enough, for it to keep us from being cut in half and going down at least as quickly as the Hobson.
My compartment was just aft of this but we caught the rebound. I slept just to starboard of the ladder to topsice. I awoke to complete darkness--no power and the battle lamp batteries had gotten run down. I somehow knew I could not use that. I got down nearly hip-deep into sea water, fuel oil from our ruptured tanks below, and crude oil from the tanker's bow. I saw later that the tanker bow had crushed it. I knew my way in the dark back through the cargo hold to Steering Aft and out throufh that hatch. It was just about as dark with no moon and no stars. Something, or someone!) told me to go up and over the boat deck using the starboard ladder and between the the 4 double-stacked LCVPs and then up the ladder to the signal brige. Only then did I learn what had happened. If I had used the port ladder to the boat deck I, without shoes, would have fallen onto torn and jagged steel, and then into the sea.

We were towed that morning by a Navy seagoin tug into the Portsmouth Navy Yard. Most unfortunately, seven of our army "passengers" were killed, and a number of my shipmates sleeping on the starboard side were seriously injured but did recover.

Well, my ship, my home for 2 years, did not sink and I survived as you may have guessed by now! We were still in the Med when the news broke about the Hobson/Wasp collision, and this was still fresh in my mind. When I read the magazine article I could certainly emphasize with this particular Hobson Survivor, in particular since I was a QMS3 at the time, standing both Quartermaster and Signalman watches.

My primary reason for posting this was to hear from another Hobson survivor who may have known the author of this article, as well as from anyone who might know where I can find his story on the Internet.

I would be pleased to hear any who would be interest in either of the above events or anything pertainig to these.
