Somewhere in the Caribbean- minus a bow, but still afloat, the torpedoed U.S.S. Blakeley (DD-150) labors her way to a Caribbean port for temporary repairs on her way home. Although she was one-fifth demolished when an enemy torpedo hit her last May, the old four-stacker destroyer is back at sea again, doing her job for Uncle Sam. Workmen accomplished a remarkable feat, repairing the vessel by cutting the entire bow off the Taylor (DD-94/Damage Control Hulk No. 40), a sister ship to the Blakeley, and “grafting” it onto the bowless destroyer.
USS Buchanan, a WWI-era “four stacker” destroyer, off the coast of Panama in 1936. This ship would later be traded to Great Britain during WWI, renamed HMS Campbeltown, and would be used as a “fire ship” in a famous commando raid on the coast of occupied France.
