    locating official WWII Coast Guard records of Merchant marine sinkings in WWII


      Where would the records for Case No. 178, conducted by the Merchant Marine Hearing unit, U.S. Coast Guard, Palermo, Sicily, 12 March 1944, regarding the sinking of the William B. Woods #243472 by enemy action on 10 March 1944, be located?  I have a copy of the Merchant Marine Captain’s deposition, but no information on any final resolution. Any help appreciated.
