USS Nevada

Division 6, composed of the Utah (flagship), Nevada, and Oklahoma, were based on Berehaven, Bantry Bay, Ireland, its principal duty being to protect convoys from possible enemy raiders. This division made two trips into the Channel, escorting convoys when enemy submarines were reported in the vicinity. Maj. Leon W. Hoyt was the division Marine officer of this division during its entire stay in European waters. Later Division 6 joined Division 9 at Portland Bill and both divisions left that port in time to assist the Pennsylvania in escorting President Wilson, on board the George Washington into the harbour of Brest.
