Dear Mr. Thompson,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Logbooks of U.S. Navy Ships and Stations, 1941 - 1983 in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) that include the deck logs of the USS Clamp (ARS-33) for 1944. For access to and/or copies of these logs, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com.
We also located World War II War Diaries, Other Operational Records and Histories, ca. 1/1/1942 - ca. 6/1/1946 in the Records of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations (Record Group 38) which contains war diaries and reports concerning the USS Clamp’s activities during World War II. These records have been digitized and can be viewed online through the Catalog. Please keep in mind that the Catalog does not always list files in chronological order.
In addition, we searched the website of the Naval History and Heritage Command and located an article about the Clamp.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
