High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! USS Augury (AM-149) was an Admirable-class minesweeper built for the United States Navy during World War II. In 1945, she was transferred to the Soviet Navy under Lend-Lease as T-524. The Soviets scrapped T-524 in 1954, never returning her to U.S. custody. Because of the Cold War, the U.S. Navy was unaware of this fate and the vessel remained on the American Naval Vessel Register until she was struck on 1 January 1983.
