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.

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.

NAMESAKE - Captain Wallace Ludwig Lind, USN (18 June 1887 – 12 April 1940).
Wallace Ludwig Lind, born on 18 June 1887 in Brainerd, Minn., was appointed a midshipman on 30 June 1905 and commissioned an ensign on 5 June 1911. Ensign Lind served on Stewart (D-13), Denver (C-14), Goldsborough (TB-20), and Cheyenne (BM-10). On 31 August 1915, he departed Cheyenne and, one month later, arrived at the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md., for a post-graduate course in steam engineering, following which he attended Columbia University for special instruction. Lind served on board Rhode Island (BB-17) from 2 March to 12 July 1917 and was then detailed to New York, N.Y., for duty on board President Lincoln (Str) as engineering officer and, later, as executive officer. It was during this assignment that he was awarded the Navy Cross for heroism. On 4 May 1920, he reported to Michigan (BB-27) as first lieutenant followed by a tour as first lieutenant on Arizona (BB-39). Lind assumed command of Capella (AK-13) on 5 June 1922 and, upon being detached from that ship, reported to the Naval Air Station, San Diego, Calif., on 18 April 1923 for duty as executive officer. Upon the completion of his duties there, he served as engineering officer of Arizona. This was followed by instruction at the Naval Unit, Edgewood Arsenal, Edgewood, Md., and at the Naval War College, Newport, R.I. Into the 1930's, Lind served as executive officer of Medusa (AR-1), Altair (AD-11), and Omaha (CL-4); followed by shore duty at the Navy Yard, Boston, Mass. From 1935 to 1938, Commander Lind was assigned to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. During this period, he received his promotion to captain to rank from 30 June 1937. Captain Lind died on 12 April 1940 at Baltimore, Md.

The ship sponsor was Mrs. Wallace L. Lind.
