Shisaka (Japanese Escort Ship, 1945), at left,
Yukikaze (Japanese Destroyer, 1940)
At Tokyo, Japan, on 26 May 1947, for display to representatives of the leading Allied powers.
Both ships were used to repatriate Japanese nationals from overseas and had been stripped of their armament for this purpose. They were later transferred to the Chinese navy.
Photographed by Kaye Calmus.
Note that Yukikaze retains her external degaussing cables, which are attached to her hull below deck level.
