Note:  The crew photo, counting the ship's mascot has 84 entries, however, the list of names that goes with the crew photo only has 79 names (see link below) - including the ship's mascot.  Two missing names were added after the sailors were identified by family - which leaves 3 unknown sailors.  Using the positions of a few that were positively identified by family, along with rank, rate and trades that are visible, the names were assigned as I believed correct.  If I've misidentified as sailor - please send me an email so I can make the correction.


Names in blue were identified by family members.
