Ahoy All Gators & Gator Gals,

Just want to share this piece of LST history with you. It is a postal cover cancelled in Quincy, MA, June 2, 1944 at 8:30 PM on the occasion of the launching of an LST by Bethlehem Steel Company, Shipbuilding Division at the Quincy Yard.

I know all of you LST gurus will jump right on this one ~ which LST was it?

Both the LST 1026 and LST 1027 were launched on June 6, 1944. Since it was at 8:30 PM I would guess it was the 1027.
