Looking for information on crewmen John Bennak or George Humphrey. both killed when Helena was sunk. Also, who was the honorary guest that officially commissioned the USS Helena? If there was a champagne bottle broken, who was given the honor.
How many machinists mates were on the Helena.
Where would they have been working when it was sunk?
