    Seeking records of LSIL-1091

    Paul Greenough Newbie

      I'm having difficulty finding the location of the ship log and other records for LSIL-1091, an LCI vessel assigned to the US Navy's Pacific Fleet Epidemic Disease Control Unit No. 1 during the Korean conflict. Brigadier General Crawford Sams' used LSIL-1091, which had been refitted as a laboratory vessel, as his base for a "medical intelligence" operation behind enemy lines off Wonsan, North Korea, in March 1951. For the rest of the year, LSIL-1091 personnel performed malaria testing among residents and refugees in Korea. https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmXoypizjW3WknFiJnKLwHCnL72vedxjQkDDP1mXWo6uco/wiki/USS_LCI(L)-1091.html  Has anyone seen the ship log for LSIL-1091 for 1951 or suggest its location? Would there be allied or related records in the archives about this ship and Sam's operation in 1951? Thanks!
