NBC! Re: NBC acronym (not Nuclear, Biological, Chemical)
"NBC -- Navy Beach Commando" From the Naval History and Heritage command. These would probably be support craft for such. Best I can come up with. Site below. DonH https://www.history.navy.mil/research/library/online-reading-room/title-list-alphabetically/u/us-navy-abbreviations-of-ww2/n.html
A member on my SMALL NAVAL COMBATANTS Facebook group asked this question: "I am researching some former WWII craft and in the annual list of US Merchant Vessels I have found a series listed with their military designation as "NBC-" Numbers go up to at least 990 so there were a lot of them. I looked up two which went over to civilian use, one was 61' and the other 195'. ?? I have not been able to figure out what these military "NBC" vessels were. Anyone know and can provide a reference somewhere?" I have no idea and thought maybe someone here might know.
