24 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 2 - June 8, 1995 Front & Center Marriage Licenses Births Navy Chief Quartermaster John "Flip" Lafferty, son of Grace Laf- ferty of Lewes and the late Mervyn "Buzz" Lafferty, is cur- rently serving aboard the Swamp Fox TWR 821 - a torpedo weapon retriever vessel that operates off Cape Cod in the Navy's Boston operations area and off of Long Island, N.Y. Lafferty, along with 17 other crew members, are responsible for retrieving spent torpedoes. Sub- marines provide the crew with co- ordinates as to where the spent torpedoes will be, a rubber raft is launched with two sailors and the torpedo is secured with a line and then winched aboard the Swamp Fox. "In heavy seas," said Lafferty, the assistant craftmaster, "heli- copters are given the task of snar- ing the torpedoes." The spent torpedoes are then taken to port, usually Newport, R.I., where they are off-loaded and taken by truck to a weapons compound where they are ana- lyzed for their performance.
