Herbert L. Pratt

 

Herbert L. Pratt was acquired from the Atlantic Refining Co. and commissioned at Philadelphia 10 June 1918, Lt. Comdr. A. H. Peterson in command.

 

Taking on a full cargo of fuel oil, she sailed for France on 30 July, arriving in Brest on 2 September via New York and Halifax. At Brest she discharged her cargo to American destroyers and other ships, returning to New York 28 September. A second transatlantic voyage, from New York to Plymouth, England, occupied Herbert L. Pratt from 17 October to 11 December 1918.

 

The tanker decommissioned at New York 18 January 1919 and was returned to her former owner.
