From the preface to the Index: "This index lists alphabetically all named vessels referenced in this book, but only for their primary inclusion (mention elsewhere in the book is not noted). Each is noted with its date of launch (or of acquisition for ships not ordered for the Navy) and the date on which it ceased to be known under that name, its original type, and the appropriate page number."
