(American Freighter, formerly the German S.S. Ockenfels of 1910)
View looking forward over the ship's forecastle, 28 June 1917.
Note 3"/50 gun mounted on the forecastle deck's starboard side. Though not in commissioned U.S. Navy service, Ockenfels is flying a Navy jack at her bow, perhaps to signify that Navy armed guard personnel are manning her guns.
This ship served as USS Pequot (ID # 2998) in 1918-1919.
