High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! USS Aylwin (DD-355), a Farragut-class destroyer, was the third ship of the United States Navy to be named for Lieutenant John Cushing Aylwin (1778 1812). Aylwin was laid down on 23 September 1933 by the Philadelphia Navy Yard; launched on 10 July 1934; sponsored by Miss Elizabeth M. Farley, the 11-year old daughter of Postmaster General James Farley; and commissioned on 1 March 1935, Commander Clarence Gulbranson in command. Following builders' trials late in March, and fitting out, the destroyer shifted to the Naval Torpedo Station, Newport, Rhode Island, to load eight torpedo warheads. At the end of further trials, she returned to Philadelphia on 8 May to prepare for shakedown.
