I just read your comments about my beloved god father captain Wilhelm Frederick Bondeson . He was born in Goteborg, Sweden And rests in the family plot I was notified by the U S consulate when he died. In1947 my father was first mate to uncle bill and was asked to be a god father. He was under cover OSS, officer spoke 4 languages and helped with the German infiltration to the u s.

The Captain was a good friend of my dad and family. We called him Uncle Bill. It was wonderful to see his photo and information on his ship.
Thank you. Judith

Comment:

Thanks to Judith for the posting. She is referring to Captain Wilhem F. Bondeson, master of Michelson, Dutton and Bowditch at various times.

Made a lot of great friends on Hess, Bowditch, and Dutton

Enjoyed long tours on all three ships but the Dutton was my favorite

Between Jan 1984 and Aug 1989 I spent more time on the Dutton than I did at home.

Four months after the Dutton was retired I left NAVO.

I sailed on the last voyage of both the Bowditch and Dutton

Still hear from friends from all 3 ships. Feel free to share my email

I joined Oceanographic Unit 2 while Dutton was in the shipyard (in dry dock) at Wallsend England. We stayed in a hotel at Whitley Bay until the ship was out of dry dock. A couple of my navy shipmates ended up marring local girls. We surveyed mostly in the north Atlantic and visited ports in England, Spain and Portugal. I left when Sutton went into Norfolk for the next ship yard. It was a very interesting tour of duty but since I had a wife and kids back home the separation was a strain.
