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.

    Sentinel Class Fast Response Cutter
    Naming Ceremony 27 February 2015
    Keel Laid - Launched 21 March 2019

    Commissioned 8 June 2019

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 name of the ship (for example, Bushnell AG-32 / Sumner AGS-5 are different names for the same ship so there should be one set of pages for Bushnell and one set for Sumner). 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. USCGC Joseph Doyle WPC-1133 Covers Page 1     (DATE RANGE)



This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a separate set of postmarks for each name and/or commissioning period. 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.

Other Information

NAMESAKE - Joseph O. Doyle, USCG (17 April 1836 - 20 August 1905)
Born in Canada, Joseph lived at the family homestead until 1853 when he decided to strike out for himself. He went to Oswego, New York and became a skillful boat builder. After learning this trade he became a successful fisherman. In 1858 he decided to become a trader. He built himself a boat and traded in fruit and fish between U.S. and Canada. It was while engaged in this business that he was capsized by the carelessness of his mate and swam through heavy surf to Yorkshire Island, where he lived for eighteen days until rescued by a passing schooner. On July 11, 1878 he was appointed keeper of the Charlotte, New York Life Saving Station. As keeper, he secured the appointment of a paid crew and became known as one of the most distinguished surfmen attached to the U.S. Life-Saving Service. His efficiency upon the occasions of shipwreck was always notable, but during 1878 he achieved two rescues so impressive that he was awarded the Gold Lifesaving Medal on 2 August 1879. Doyle held the position of keeper for 17 years and was medically retired 23 October 1893 due to injuries received in service.
