Navy Muster Rolls Designation (LC)

Recommended Posts


Hello, I am researching a group of Navy uniforms from a vet aboard one of the Liberty Ships that operated at Iwo and Okinawa. Upon reading his files, most of the war he remained a “F1c (LC)”. I understand the F1c but I heard “LC” stood for “Landing Craft.” If so, would that mean it was likely that this vet may have help land Tripp’s directly onto the beaches?


His ship operated the first 9 days of Iwo landing Marines of the 4th Division.

It is my understanding that with LC next to his rate, he would have been part of a landing craft crew. So yea, good chance he made trips ashore with troops/supplies
