Pre-WWII 1929 US Navy Good Conduct Medal USS Penguin AM33 Pharmacists Mate Named Tabs. Named to Paul E Pirrone who was a Pharmacist Mate USS Penguin Lapwing-class Minesweeper. Served in Haitian Campaign, China WWI, and Interwar period around the world. Direct from his Estate. Both Clasps are named and engraved to! Choice medal more of his medals will be available this week. Arrived in New York in November 1919 and, after a major overhaul, was sent to join the Pacific Fleets Mine Squadron 4, which was based in the eastern Pacific. Continued working as a minesweeper until 1 June 1922, when she was decommissioned and placed in reserve at Pearl Harbor. Was re-commissioned 13 October 1923 and was converted into a gunboat for service with the US Navys Asiatic Fleet. She left Pearl Harbor and headed west to become part of the famous Yangtze Patrol and was based at Shanghai. Although this was supposed to be only a temporary assignment. Remained with the Yangtze Patrol for seven years, protecting American lives and property while battling Chinese pirates and warlords. Sailed to Cavite in the Philippines for a brief period of time before being ordered to go to Guam. With the coming of World War II in the Pacific, Japan invaded China and was making ominous moves towards many of the islands in the region. Was ordered to increase her patrols around Guam and to guard against any Japanese warships that could potentially threaten the island. No one really knew, though, what the small and poorly armed gunboat could do if it encountered units from the enormous Japanese Navy.
