November 1942 French light cruiser Primauguet beached off Casablanca, Morocco in November 1942. She had been badly damaged during the Battle of Casablanca on 8 November, and is largely burned out forward. What appears to be shell damage is visible at her main deck line amidships, just aft of her second smokestack. In the left distance are the French destroyers Milan (partially visible at far left) and Albatros, both badly damaged and beached closer to shore. The latter is flying a large French flag from her foremast. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
