i am looking for information on the Zebulon B. Vance during WWII. Specifically during the period in 1945-47 when it did duty as a Liberty Ship transporting War Brides from Great Britain to the U.S.
I am trying to find information on Louis B. Smith, who was a boatswain on the ship. He may have been a career Merchant Marine as he appears on some crew lists of other vessels in later years. He may also have attended a MM school before entering the service.
if anyone may have any information or have been a shipmate, i would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks, Linda

Hi - Wish I could help - I was on the Vance for three weeks in November 1946 - but I was only five, so I didn't get much chance to meet or remember the crew. We went from NYC to Liverno, Italy.

Thanks for your response. no, I guess at 5 you wouldn't have remembered too much.

Not many WWII merchant marines left now, so not expecting many response.
