Convoy at sea, circa 1942
The destroyer to the right is USS Wilson (DD-408), which served in the Atlantic until June 1942 and was thereafter in the Pacific. Ship at the far left is a New Orleans class heavy cruiser.
It is possible that this view is of the Guadalcanal-Tulagi invasion convoy, in July-August 1942.
