    Seeking records about Robert John Prescott


      I am looking for the name of the vessel & crew of Sailors on board a vessel docked in Brisbane, Australia harbor around February-March 1944. I'm especially looking for Sailor Robert John Prescott.

          Dear Mr. Reisman,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We suggest that you request a copy of his Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). OMPFs and medical records of enlisted men of the U.S. Navy who were separated from the service after 1885 and prior to 1958 are located at NARA's National Personnel Records Center (NPRC) in St.Louis.  This file will include basic biographical information as well as documentation of military service (training, evaluations, correspondence, and movement).  To request these records, please mail a completed GSA Standard Form 180 to National Personnel Records Center 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, MO  63138-1002. You can also fax the form to 314-801-9195. Veterans and their next of kin can also use eVetRecs to request records. See eVetRecs Help for instructions. For more information see Official Military Personnel Files (OMPF), Archival Records Requests.


          Due to the coronavirus public health emergency, the National Personnel Records Center is servicing only urgent requests related to homeless veterans, medical emergencies, and funerals which may be faxed to 314-801-0764.  We thank you for your patience and look forward to resuming normal operations when the public health emergency has ended.


          We hope this is helpful!
