Ship's cat Peggy was black and white, and had a canine pal in the captain's dog, Mireau. Very shy at first, Peggy felt at home with the crew before long, but her best friend was Mireau. The dog later went missing when the Julia berthed in England, but was found in Portsmouth. Both animals were terrified by all the noise and hid during the invasion. Our photo shows Peggy in the arms of Robert van Damme, Julia's first officer, before D-Day; we are indebted to his daughter Jeanine Hardcastle, of Brussels, for passing it on together with information about the ship.

Later that year she transported World War 1 cargo, and while doing so she carried a Naval Armed Guard unit. The photo shows a J. Hall with the ship's cats, Snow and Mouse. The cat's name is not recorded, but as with many naval felines a dedicated hammock went with the job, and the occupant certainly looks relaxed! One short but quite important role the ship fulfilled later on in the war was to carry Winston Churchill and various Cat of york escort across the Channel to Normandy shortly after Operation Cat of york escort, the D-Day landings. She was scrapped in Their description notes that the kitten was born in the wardrobe of an officer's cabin. On board was ship's cat Jimmy, a large, long-haired, tortoiseshell type who had been adopted by one of the ship's cooks when his former owner, an Australian soldier, had been wounded and was no longer able to look after him.

Jimmy suffered severe Coed escorts nyc to his left ear when a shell exploded near him on deck and he was hit by a piece of shrapnel. Later he was transferred to HMS Renown see entry with photo below. Her ship's cat was Cinders, who probably perished when the ship was sunk off Libya in May HM Landing Craft T The unlikely mascot of this vessel was Susan, a black-and-white cat; in fact, there were two mascots, as there was also Bosun, a boisterous mongrel dog. Susan was given to a lieutenant on the craft shortly before sailing one day and, being a former street cat, was found to have fleas.

Not wishing to transfer these unwelcome guests to the wardroom, and having no flea powder, the officer bathed Susan in warm disinfectant. She appeared to be none the worse and soon settled down to become a favourite of the crew along with Bosun, with whom she became friends. The animals saw several engagements in the English Channel and were in on the action on D-Day. Susan became such a dyed-in-the-wool sea cat that when the war ended and she was taken ashore, she didn't like dry land at all; grass, in particular, terrified her! HMS London The ship had two cats, which are pictured here.

The spotted tabby with the 'prize' of a fish was Minnie the Marines' Cat far leftwhile the handsome tabby and white was the Chief Baker's Cat. Read more about the Yangtze Incident in the story of Amethyst's cat Simon. The strange thing about the black cat was that gunfire never seemed to worry him a bit. He'd walk about on the top of a inch turret when that gun was firing; his fur would stand right up on end, but he'd just look around to see what was happening, and never move. The tabby cat, on the other hand, was terror-stricken by gunfire, and it was a long time before the crew found where he used to hide.

His shipmates swore that when the craft was being strafed by Japanese planes with tracer bullets, Camouflage's idea of fun was to chase the bullets from one ship's rail to the other as they pinged across the deck. He never caught one, which is probably just as well as it sounds a highly risky occupation; but his antics kept the crew amused and helped to relieve their tension in difficult times. On another LST, Tarawa was named after the atoll in the central Pacific Ocean, previously part of the former British colony of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands, where she was rescued as a frightened and half-starved kitten from a smashed pillbox during the WW2 battle there.

She was taken aboard and installed in the officers' quarters, where she looks fairly relaxed about the whole thing. Kodiak, the ship's canine mascot, however, didn't think much of this intruder in his domain, and the two didn't get along, so he stuck with the enlisted men and Tarawa decided she preferred her privileges with the officers! When the vessel returned home for a spell she jumped ship, so Kodiak had his 'empire' to himself again. Camouflage and Tarawa images: United States Coast Guard. Naturally the ship had a Manx cat as mascot, but the holders of the post don't seem to have been very lucky. The first, taken on when the ship was commissioned, was lost at sea during the war.

A replacement was taken on when the ship visited the Isle of Man on an official visit, but it too was lost at sea. Further peacetime mascots seem to have fared little better, and the next two did not live out their natural lifespan either. She had two ship's cats, appropriately named Mary and Mack. He featured on one of the 'lucky black cat' postcards, popular at the time, which crew members could send home to their loved ones. Perhaps he did bring luck, as the ship survived the war. Extensively modernised in the early s, she served in WW2 in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.

Although we don't know its story, Saipan the cat was no doubt named after the Pacific island, one of the places where New Mexico saw action in Cats in the Sea Services. Named after the Nizam of Hyderabad who helped to pay for her, the ship was owned by Britain's Royal Navy but sailed under the Australian flag during WW2. After hostilities ceased she was returned to Britain but didn't see active service again, and was broken up in Australian War Memorial HMS Orion On board here was intrepid ship's cat Nigger, who insisted on staying on the bridge to keep an eye on things while the ship was involved in the shelling of Salerno, in Italy, in September But the following month, a letter written by Orion's commander said, 'Unfortunately Nigger is not with us at present.

He wished to remain on active service in the Mediterranean, so he was temporarily allowed to transfer to one of His Majesty's battleships in the sphere of operations. We hope, however, to have him back before long. Before long she was needed in the Pacific to help combat the Japanese advance across south-east Asia. It seems likely that's where a small black kitten joined the crew as mascot and was named Red Lead. Some accounts relate that he knocked over a tin of red lead paint and needed a serious clean-up afterwards, hence aquiring his name. He quickly became a favourite and, as cats do, found the most comfortable spot to sleep, in Captain Waller's cabin.

At the end of February battle was joined with a Japanese convoy attempting to make a landing on the island of Java; Allied ships were badly outnumbered and in the fierce fighting that followed many were badly damaged, and some were sunk. The noise and chaos of battle, which included aircraft flying close overhead, frightened Red Lead and he spent the entire time in 'his' cabin, until Perth finally withdrew and returned to harbour. At that point the kitten seems to have decided he'd had enough of battle and that it would be prudent to seek a quieter and safer home.

He crept quietly down the gangplank, but unfortunately for him a sailor saw him and brought him back on deck, ignoring his loud protests. It was a bad omen, and the sailors knew it. Perth sailed into battle again the following day and met a large fleet of Japanese warships. He's shown here in when the ship was in the Hebrides, in Scotland, with a large fish that had been killed by a depth charge. The story goes that Churchill noticed the ship's large, black cat Blackie apparently about to cross the gangway to the American destroyer USS McDougal, moored alongside, whereupon he bent down to stroke the cat, the distraction successfully averting a possible desertion.

Churchill was very fond of cats and at the time had his own 'Nelson' at home. Blackie was, of course, renamed Churchill and was a much loved mascot. Despite extensive searches, he finally had to be left to his fate. Here in this earlier photo, probablyship's cats Zaba 'Frog' and Tygrys 'Tiger' are being encouraged to make friends with a stowaway thought to have escaped from an oiler. The name of the third cat is not recorded. Polish sailors make a big fuss of their pets, as it's considered an ill omen if cats voluntarily leave a ship before it sails. She saw service in both world wars, but was scrapped in Here she is off the Gallipoli Peninsula in during the Dardanelles campaign, and the ship's cat, name unknown, is seen 'exercising' on one of the 15 inch guns that formed the ship's main armament.

USS Ranger Launched in and commissioned the following year, Ranger was the first American ship to be purpose-built as an aircraft carrier, and the only one of eight pre-WW2 carriers to survive the war intact, perhaps because she never engaged the Japanese in battle. In when the photo was taken she was on training duties in the United States, including Hawaii. HMS Renown Formerly ship's cat of HMS King George V see entry aboveJimmy was transferred in September to the newly-commissioned battle cruiser Renown, where he became ship's mascot and was reportedly usually to be found in the galley well, he had been a cook's cat!

He probably had a rather quieter time than with his previous ship, as Renown saw no combat action during the rest of WW1.

Jimmy was later 'decommissioned', and he died in in a Chelsea cats' home in London. The ship's cat was rescued, along with the surviving crew, by the naval trawler HMT Pict and remained on board as its cat. He was given the name Rinda after his kf ship. A page on the Rinda yprk the WarSailors site includes a description of ecort sinking and its aftermath based on a Norwegian published account. The ship capsized very quickly, taking all but one Cat of york escort with it, and survivors who had managed to reach it were still looking for anyone left in the water: In October the crew of No.

He was never seasick, always cheerful and a great companion and source of comfort to the men. One winter's night, when it was snowing and bitterly cold, crew members were unloading boxes of ammunition from railway wagons and carrying them to the boat. Someone heard a strange noise, and called on his mates to stop cursing and grumbling for a moment; there was a faint mewing, and by using a torch the men located a small, cold and pathetic kitten hiding under one of the wagons. Back on board on the mess-deck, the freezing cat was gently warmed up by putting it in one of the galley's warm ovens with the door open, and then on top of a bulkhead heater. A bowl of evaporated milk with a dash of rum in it was quickly lapped up, and the little soul became a mess-deck resident and a crew member, although he never had a proper name other than That Bloody Cat or TBC.
