Attention! A new higher quality version of this video is now available at:

Made during WWII, this 1944 color film shows the men of the Coast Guard in operation in the Atlantic. Guardsmen man and command various support vessels and transports. Their cutters serve as Navy warships. Anti-submarine patrol is an important duty, and we see PBY flying boats, cutters and destroyers fending off enemy subs. As a seaborne invasion nears, USCG personnel and the men of the Merchant Marine rush men and supplies to the beach in LCIs and LSTs. The film clearly demonstrates the enormous role played by the Coast Guard and Merchant Marine in World War II. Also featured in this film is beautiful Kodachrome footage of aircraft carrier operations.

This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD. For more information visit

    My father had a friend that was on N. Atlantic convoy duty in WWII. During attacks he was a loader on a deck gun. He had a large, ugly wart on his hand. During 1 engagement it was ripped out & bled profusely, even though he never felt it. An officer though he'd been wounded, & he was awarded the Purple Heart.

    There you go again with your annoying banner! Everyone knows these are your uploads. I'll never watch another of your films because you seem to be more
    interested in advertising the enterprise than posting a watchable film.
