Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
January 9, 1951 REQUIN departs for the Mediterranean for her first deployment with the US Sixth Fleet.

During one picket mission, REQUIN's radar watched picked up a fast moving surface contact. They reported the contact as being on a heading of 090 and moving at 45 knots. The captain, thinking the men weren't seeing things right, ordered the watch to recheck and test the radar displays and antennas, thinking the contact's speed somewhat excessive. When the contact again was reported at the same speed and bearing, the radarman on duty went to the bridge, reported that everything checked out and nothing was malfunctioning. When asked if he had been drinking alcohol, the radarman replied in the negative. As a result, a radio message was finally sent to the contact. The contact later turned out to be the new passenger liner SS UNITED STATES, which had just gone into service and was conducting speed runs during her maiden voyage.
