USS Tudno (1918-1919)

USS Tudno, a 754 ton paddle-wheel personnel ferry, was built in 1891 at Glasgow, Scotland, as the commercial steamship H.T. Jackson. Later renamed Saint Tudno, she was employed in British waters and in the English Channel. Loaned to the U.S. Navy in about October 1918, she was placed in service, with her name shortened to Tudno, carrying passengers between troopships and the shore at Brest, France. This important, if somewhat prosaic, work continued until mid-August 1919, when Tudno steamed to Southampton, England, and was returned to British custody. Her subsequent civilian service, again under the name Saint Tudno, lasted until the mid-1920s.

This page features all the views we have concerning USS Tudno (1918-1919).
