The S.S. Mariposa in San Francisco Harbor

On the night of July 11th, Lorne boarded the S.S. Mariposa and set sail towards Hawaii. The Mariposa was one of four luxury ocean liners in the Matson Lines’ “White Fleet” including the S.S. Lurline, S.S. Malolo and the S.S. Monterey.

For the next four days, Lorne and many other military men would be treated as normal First Class passengers, enjoying elaborate dinners and relaxing on the ship’s deck. Lorne saved the passenger list from his voyage as well as meal menus and the daily Matson Line Wireless.
