Great picture. I just read up on the history of that skirmish and it was really cool
What a horrible and terrible death.
I remember seeing this picture in a book as a young child and being completely unable to understand what I was looking at. The only “rational” explanation I could come up with was that the boat was moving away from a small tropical island.
Cheers for a healthy dose of childhood naivety.
Believe my grandfather might have served on this cutter during WWII. Very cool!
