A British Royal Navy T-class destroyer alongside the American carrier USS Wasp (CV-18) in August 1945. Five T-class destroyers and the carrier HMS Indefatigable (R10) were part of Task Group 38.3 in August 1945. The two funnel rings identify the ships as part of the 24th destroyer flotilla (all T-class destroyers). As the vertical stripe identifies the division leader in the flotilla (the second senior commander), the destroyer is most probably HMS Terpsichore (D48). In the distance are a long-hull Essex-class carrier, probably USS Randolph (CV-15, flagship RAdm Gerald F. Bogan), and the battleship USS North Carolina (BB-55).
