Yukikaze (Japanese Destroyer, 1940)
View in the ship's engine control room, taken at Tokyo, Japan, on 26 May 1947, after she had served as a repatriation ship for Japanese nationals.
"Controls have been labeled with English translations explaining functions of the various instruments, wheels and dials for the benefit of American officers working with the ship's Japanese crew. Of all the repatriation ships, Yukikaze has been kept in perfect working conditions. A tribute to the pride of her Japanese crew." (quoted from the original 1947 picture caption).
Taken over by China in July 1947 she had long service as the Republic of China's destroyer Tan Yang.
