USS Henderson (Transport # 1), at left,
USS Leviathan (ID # 1326), center
Photographed circa May 1918, probably at Brest, France. They were members of a convoy escorted by USS Wakiva (SP-160), from which this photograph was presumably taken. Wakiva was lost in a collision on 22 May 1918.
Note both ships' "dazzle" camouflage.
