Title: Ex-USS Stewart
Description: (DD-224) Being sunk as a target on 24 May 1946. She has already been bombed by aircraft and is now under fire by the 40mm single-gun mount in the foreground. The Japanese flag painted amidships reflects Stewart's 1943-1945 service as the Japanese Navy's Patrol Boat 102. She was recovered by the U.S. Navy after the end of World War II and recommissioned as USS DD-224 for the voyage back to the United States. The Sailor on the left has the name Johnson on his shirt, and the one standing in the center has Hickman on his. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
