Large Brass Submarine plaque "USS Tusk US 426 Front Runner".
The submarine's keel was laid down on the 23rd of August 1943 in Philadelphia by the Cramp shipbuilding company. She was launched on the 8th of July 1945 and sponsored by Mrs Carolyn Park Mills and was comissioned on the 11th of April 1946. Commander Raymond A. Moore was in command at that time. During Nato exercises in 1949, she visited Derry/Londonderry and this is how we think the plaque arrived in Northern Ireland.
​This heavy plaque measures 14.5cm in diameter.
