Photo #: 80-G-44230  USS Turner
Title: USS Turner
Description: (DD-648) Photograph dated 18 January 1943, but actually taken several months later. This image was retouched by the wartime censor to remove radar antennas atop the ship's foremast and Mk. 37 gun director. However, the censor did not remove the SG radar antenna on the foremast. Turner sank on 3 January 1944, with the loss of 15 officers and 123 crewmen, after suffering a series of explosions while at anchor off Ambrose Light near New York harbor. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
