Topic: USS Conecuh AOR 110


  
  USS Conecuh   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
On 1 October her name was changed to Conecuh and she was redesignated AO-110, but lack of funds delayed her conversion and she was placed out of service 24 October.
Her classification was changed to AOR-110 on 4 September 1952 and she was converted to a replenishment fleet tanker.
Conecuh proved the feasibility of the combination oiler-replenishment ship, experience gained during her operations led to the development of the fast combat support ship (AOE) in the United States Navy.

However having her for such a short time there are no records that a ship of this name ever existed in the Royal Navy.
She later became USS Conecuh (AOR-110) I did pinch the battle ensign from the ship but unfortunately this somehow disappeared many years ago, I do however have a corkscrew from the ship and it brings back all the memories when I open a bottle of wine.
It was during my time in Hamburg we met some Americans in the Red Shield Club this was a club specially for the forces, they could certainly put it away the beer they were as bad as our lot.

At the end of the war, Dithmarschen and Nordmark were surrendered to the U.S. and Royal navies, respectively.
Dithmarschen was commissioned into the U.S. Navy as USS Conecuh (AO 110) and became the test platform for experimentation with multicargo replenishment ships, from which the current forms of the replenishment oiler (AOR) type were derived.
For a detailed account of the German origins of the AOR concept, see Thomas Wildenberg, Gray Steel and Black Oil: Fast Tankers and Replenishment at Sea in the U.S. Navy, 1912—1995 (Annapolis, Md.: Naval Institute Press, 1996), pp.
