My relative, Lester Earl Sliffe, was the engineering officer aboard LST 448 when she was bombed on October 1, 1943. For his actions that day LTJG Sliffe was awarded the Navy-Marine Corps Medal.
Since your father served in the engineroom, LTJG Sliffe would have been his division officer.
I have a some information about the ship in general and the day it was bombed in particular. Feel free to call me - (425) 774-2775
