Blog: Debunking Military Lies, Part 4: Hubbard's Fibs and Follies Afloat - 2018-05-31
In Part Three, we looked at Hubbard's return home from Australia and the associated mythology surrounding this journey, as well as uncovering the truth about his alleged use of Pan American's Philippine Clipper to get from Brisbane to Honolulu and on to San Francisco.
In Part Four, we turn to Hubbard's brief time as a cable censor, his disastrous first attempt at command and his eventual admission to the Submarine Chaser Training Center (SCTC) in Florida. We'll look at Hubbard's record as associated with the converted fishing trawler Mist, eventually recommissioned as the coastal patrol craft USS YP-442, as well as the Church of Scientology's claims about his combat record in the Battle of the Atlantic. I'd like to once again thank Chris Owen in particular for his previous research, which was invaluable to me in providing much of the historical context for this post.
