Earnal S. Campbell SS Henry Bacon W W 2

Earnal Spurgeon Campbell (born December 28, 1921, Eldridge, Al ) is an honored World War II veteran of the United States Merchant Marine. His part in the rescue of 19 Norwegian refugees was recorded in The Last Voyage of the SS Henry Bacon. This was later recognized by several governments, including Russia and Norway. Campbell recalls the February night in a lifeboat in the Arctic filled with terrified refugees, his efforts to send SOS signals in gale-force winds, and of their miraculous rescue. Decades later, he and the survivors were reunited when he was honored by the Norwegian government. Campbell's odyssey includes Cold War episodes in Eniwetok and Thule, Greenland and a 20-year career with Radio Free Europe.


The Liberty ship SS Henry Bacon was the last allied ship sunk by the Luftwaffe in World War II. Twenty two crew members and seven members of the United States Navy Armed Guard lost their lives in this action. The vessel was named after Henry Bacon, the American architect who designed and built many monuments and settings for public sculpture, including the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Sent him 2 photos (photos of the Henry Bacon) on 28 May and got them back signed on 10 Jun. Signed them From Spud.. then his full name... Radio operator on the Henry Bacon when it sank in the Arctic Ocean in 1945.

Return address on the envelop says
