Ship Name and Designation History

This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during its lifetime. The list is in chronological order.


    Northampton Class Light Cruiser
    Keel Laid 2 July 1928 - Launched 1 February 1930

  1. USS AUGUSTA CL-31
    Commissioned 30 January 1931

  2. USS AUGUSTA CA-31
    Redesignated Heavy Cruiser (CA) 1 July 1931
    Decommissioned 16 July 1946

    Struck from Naval Register 1 March 1959
    Sold 9 November 1959 for scrap
Augusta CA31 Crest.jpg

Naval Covers

This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date range for covers on that page.

  1. USS Augusta CA-31 Covers Page 1    (1932-1946)

 

Postmarks

This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each incarnation of the ship (ie, for each entry in the "Ship Name and Designation History" section). Within each set, the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
 
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the existing example.
