The International Naval Research Organization is a non-profit organization dedicated to the encouragement of the study of naval vessels and their histories, principally in the era of iron and steel warships (about 1860 to date). Its purpose is to provide information and a means of contact for those interested in warships. The principal activity of INRO for the last 50 years has been the publication of a quarterly journal, Warship International, recognized internationally as the leading and most authoritative publication in the field. Auxiliary services include a Book Service, offering a 10 per cent discount on current naval books, and the Photo Service, which provides warship photos at a nominal price.

USS Chester (CA-27) This heavy cruiser is named after a city in the state of Pennsylvania and was the second ship to bare the name of Chester to serve in the U.S.N.  Chester was launched 3 July 1929 at the New York Shipbuilding Co.  During the period prior to WW II the ship performed various duties in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.  Chester was at sea on 7 December 1941 returning from Manila, P.I.  Chester’s wartime service was entirely in the Pacific Theater of Operations.  The vessel earned 11 Battle Stars for service in WW II.  The vessel was sold on 11 August 1959.  This photograph is dated 1936.  The photograph is through the courtesy of our member Leo van Ginderen.
