Locy Type 3
Submarine Division Fourteen / Battle Fleet


"In May 1931 eleven of these submarines moved to the Philadelphia Navy Yard, where they were decommissioned and placed in reserve (the other nine boats remained active). The mail clerk of Submarine Division Fourteen, Battle Fleet produced commemorative covers for these events. The name of each submarine was given in the killer bars of the cancel. Once again, the division post office was not aboard each boat; it was located at the yard along with the staff of the division." USCS Postmark Catalog, 5th Edition.
