USS West Virginia (BB-48)
Leaving Pearl Harbor on 30 April 1943, en route to the Puget Sound Navy Yard, Bremerton, Washington, for reconstruction. The Pearl Harbor Navy Yard had just finished temporary repair of the damage she had received in the Japanese attack of 7 December 1941.
A New Mexico class battleship is in the right distance, and at far right is the former mainmast of USS California (BB-44), now serving as a signal tower ashore.
