Comments: I'm making this entry on behalf of my father, Warren R. Tompkins. He
served on Windham Bay throughout the Korean War. He was a Lieutenant
and was the ships navigator for most of that time. I'm sure he'd like to
hear from anyone that remembers him. He is alive and well at 85 but his
eye sight has gotten to the point where it's hard for him to use the
computer. His memory is fine and he has often told me of his endless
Pacific crossings during Korea taking planes to Japan, Vietnam, Formosa,
and other places.

Keywords: Discovered this site in Oct. 09 and it spurred a lot of memeories and hoping to hear from some of my shipmates. Some smiling memories are when we picked up 3 of General Chenaults HUGE cargo planes in Guam, I believe it was and journeyed on to Japan. We anchored out for a day or two and when the tide turned the ship sideways to shore we looked like a huge ship that would fly. The wing spans on the three planes were so wide they overhung the flight deck by dozens of feet. When I went ashore one or some of our shipmates made the Japanese believe we had a new weapon. A ship that would fly. Does anyone remember when one of our crew snuck a bird of somekind aboard and the word trickled up to Captain Jung and the word was passed over the bitch box that the CHICKEN that was brough aboard would have to be put ashore or there would not be liberty for anyone at the next port of call

Comments: It's nice to know that someone knows something about the good old Windham Bay CVE 92. I had never been away from home until I joined the Navy.
The trips were long, sometimes rough. I remember the waves coming over the flight deck, the cracks in the hull, to dry docks in Pearl, the different countries we saw,and the miserable lives people lived in those foreign places.
I remember some characters aboard ship, but I don't remember their names as that is not important today. My best friend was Charles Zuber, now deceased, I worked with a Johnson from, down South, and a livewire Joe Decuio, from back East.
While I was in the deck force, I remember being the only guy with enough nerve or foolish enough to spray paint the underside of the flightdeck overhang, above the fantail, and our measley 5"38 cannon. The sea was rough that day and the bostain chair swung back and forth as I was spray painting the ship, and myself.
I can remember the end of the war in 1953. It was announced over the intercom and I was standing on the fantail.I was sure glad. There is a lot more that could be said in that a tour of duty aboard the USS Windham Bay was certainly a great and worthwile adventure.

P.S. My 21 year old grandson served a full tour of duty (6Yrs) aboard the USS Enterprise during the latest US envolvement.

The escort carrier stayed with the Reserve Fleet until hostilities erupted in Korea during the summer of 1950. On 28 October 1950, she was recommissioned at Bremerton, Wash., Capt. Charles E. Brunton in command.


On 20 November, she steamed south to California, visiting San Francisco on the way to San Diego where she arrived on 2 December. After 11 days, the escort carrier returned to San Francisco whence she embarked upon a voyage to Pearl Harbor on the 19th. Returning to the west coast at Alameda on 2 January 1951, the warship headed west again five days later.


She arrived in Yokohama, Japan, on the 24th and unloaded a cargo of aircraft for use in the Korean conflict which the United States had entered under the auspices of the United Nations. Departing Japan two days later, she visited Saigon in French Indochina and Manila in the Philippines before shaping a course back to the United States.


WINDHAM BAY reentered San Francisco Bay on 24 February. At this juncture, the escort carrier settled into a routine of transpacific resupply voyages between the United States and Japan. Over the next 20 months, she made nine round-trip voyages, beginning each at either San Francisco or San Diego, stopping always at Yokosuka, and returning always to San Francisco. She broke that nine-voyage routine in October and November 1952 when she visited Takao, Japan, and Bangkok, Thailand before returning, via Japan, to the west coast at Alameda on 9 December.


WINDHAM BAY continued her aircraft ferrying voyages between the United States and Japan during 1953. The war in Korea, however, began to subside in intensity at about the same time, and her passages began to take on more of a peacetime character. She began making more stops and side trips in addition to Yokosuka--notably to Hawaii, the Philippines, and at other Japanese ports.
