USS North Star coast guard cutter injector, 1941
The Coast Guard Cutter North Star was originally built as a wooden cruising cutter for the Department of the Interior at Seattle, Washington, in 1932. She was commissioned as a Coast Guard cutter on 15 May 1941 and steamed to the east coast, where she was placed on duty with the Navy.
She became part of the Northeast Greenland Patrol 1 July 1941. This patrol was formed against the violent background of the Battle of the Atlantic, during which the Royal Navy was valiantly attempting to guard the huge volume of shipping in the North Atlantic
