Description : The ladle is a large spoon that appears to be made of stainless steel. There is no visible decoration to the utensil. There is a hole at the to of the handle, presumably used for hanging the spoon. The middle of the handle has a section that is slightly raised.
Commentaires : This spoon was recovered from the wrecks of the USS Truxton and Pollux. On February 18, 1942, a fleet of three ships the USS Truxton, Pollux, and Wilkes were travelling to Argentia, Newfoundland in a blinding snow storm. At approximately 4:30 am the Wilkes ran aground on the beach but was able to get itself unstuck. However, the 1200 ton destroyer USS Truxton crashed ashore at Chamber Cove on the outer side of the St. Lawrence. At the same time the 6085 ton supply ship USS Pollux ran aground at Lawn Point. In the disaster that followed, 293 people died and 186 survived. The survivors credit their rescue to the people of nearby Lawn and St. Lawrence who risked their lives to help the sailors.
