What rcressman is doing on Fold3…
The date on this item is incorrectly identified as 31 January 1936 -- it is actually a "report of changes" sheet for 31 January 1941. The ship at this time was not commissioned, but "in ordinary" -- a decommissioned status not so designated today. The TANGIER was commissioned on 25 August 1941.
