Good Morning Gents! Well it is morning here in Biloxi, Mississippi, USA.
On 14 April 1936, Smith Thompson DD-212, while en route from Manila to Shanghai, was rammed amidships by Whipple (DD-217). There was no loss of life, but Smith Thompson was seriously damaged and had to be towed back to the Philippines by Barker (DD-213), arriving in Subic Bay on 17 April. Inspection showed the ship not worth repair, and Smith Thompson was decommissioned at Olongapo on 15 May, struck from the Navy list on 19 May, and sunk at sea off Subic Bay on 25 July 1936.
As of 2005, no other ships have been named Smith Thompson.
You might want to know that also, no cruiser was ever named after the State Capital of North Dakota!
