Photos, awards, and compkete service documents for Navy Captain Allyn Cole jr. Battle of Midway, USNA


Recommended Posts

This amazing grouping is from a class of 1934 USNA graduate named Allyn Cole jr. He was an intel officer and Japanese linguist who was assigned to Japan and further studied in Tokyo before the war. He transfered to Corregidor and then to Pearl Harbor to witness the attack. He remained at PH as an intel communications officer and (according to the family) was a team member of Capt. Jos. Rochefort’s team that decoded the Japanese intent to attack Midway Island. He served on the USS Idaho and USS Wisconsin and Bremerhaven during the post war period. Finally, he served with the NSA and SECDEF where he received the pin and finally retirement. This is a great grouping with images of him receiving the Bronze Star and the Legion of Merit. The early image of him is captured in a sterling silver frame. His graduation from the USNA and further dovuments have FDR’s signature and James Forrestal. He married his spouse in Hawaii in 1941 and there are two photo albums from there. He is buried in Hawaii.
