The families first name destroyer in US Navy was DD 284 - Isherwood.
In 1926/27 their division served 1 year in European waters....no more roasting in Guantanamo and Panama Canal zone during Fleet Problem*
Around 2 weeks in port of Alexandria Egypt,...then a stint at Haifa
Found a few piks of DD 284 in Villifranche/Gibraltar , ....British fleet also liked to
Stay in Villifranche. ...and end up gambling in Monaco?

DD 520,...the 2nd Isherwood in the USN,...they get into big trouble during early 50s
