I have tried for many years to bring this to your attention. Even this year, again calling your Commander in Northwood. I have discovered our dad is not the only forgotten vet who has been disrespected.


Please help add my father’s name to your roster or print in the paper where or who I should call to finally, after 15 years, get this matter put to rest. Anchors Away.

Jim Dalrymple, Shipyard’s Plank Owner, Retires

With Over 47 Years Of Service

As Printed In The The Portsmouth Periscope, May 28, 1976


James M. Dalrymple, Portsmouth’s plank owner, joined the retired ranks this month with 47 years and 7 months of Government service. He held the position of data communications equipment supervisor in the Administrative Department. He plans to travel and see the United States. He lives in Northwood.


He is from South Boston, Mass. and attended Boston Latin High School. He enlisted in the Navy in 1928 and served 22 years on active duty. He attended Radioman School at Hampton Roads and Navel Operating Base, Norfolk, VA and Submarine School, New London, Conn.


His first submarine was the SS23 (SS128) which arrived at Portsmouth in August 1930 for overhaul. While at PNS, he met Marion Henson of Portsmouth and they were married in February 1931. She passed away in August 1975.


Dalrymple served on numerous other submarines, including the Portsmouth-built Sea Raven (SS196). He also had sea duty on a cruiser, submarine tender and a destroyer. He served in the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean and Mediterranean.


He was a radio communications operator on Sea Raven when the submarine was in the Philippines during the Japanese attack on Manila at the outbreak of World War II. He was attached to the submarine tender Proteus (AS19) during signing of the Peace Treaty in Tokyo Bay.


Dalrymple retired from the Navy in 1950 and shortly afterwards accepted employment at the Shipyard. He started out as a teletype radio operator and has been with the Communications Division 25 years and 7 months.




Paying It Forward


On May 30th I went to the Northwood Hannaford to pick up a few things. I wrote a check at the Pharmacy but had left my ID in my car. I have trouble walking, but told the Pharmacy Technician I would be right back. The woman behind me in line stepped forward to pay for my purchases. I objected, saying it was not a problem, that I could go to my car and return, but she insisted and would not take no for an answer. I repeatedly asked her for her name and address to reimburse her, but she declined to give it to me. She was a kind stranger who will never be forgotten. Many thanks.
