As children we played with and amongst the remaining artefacts of the 1918 US Naval Air Station, much disguised or destroyed by our homes. Today if you know where to look there are still remains. a pole mount for the station wind sock, beside the monument on the hill at Wexford Municipal pool. The Boat/ Plane slip across from Ferrybank Motors was built by the Americans. Their massive hangers once occupied the area where O’Rourkes car show rooms and garage occupy today.

The Air station began under the remit of the British Secret Service. due to post 1916 activity it was necessary to keep existence of the bases possible existence a secret. Due to food shortages and those of raw materials, created by U Boat blockage of Southern approaches off the County Wexford Coast, the British Admirality decided to establish a sea plane base in Wexford Harbour. The British Admiralty were responsible for the laying down of roads and foundations until the arrival of the American sailors in February.

September and  the arrival of four planes from Queenstown in Cork, marked the transition from a construction to functional body. the planes in use were the H16 Curtiss Flying boat and the A1079 Seaplane. Patrols started the next day. The station covered the coast line from Dublin to Cork and across the Channel to France and England as far as Liverpool.

By the end of October US Naval Air Station Wexford was host to four hundred and six men, many of whom had been drafted only weeks before and twenty officers. The signing of the Armistice occurred on the 11th of November 1918. Within twelve days of the signing, the first draft of American Sailors left Wexford.

Through October the men and machines succeeded in making the area known as the ‘graveyard for ships’, a submarine free zone.
