In harbor after her return to United States waters, circa late 1945 or early 1946.
The ship had served during World War II as the Japanese Navy’s Patrol Boat 102 and was recovered by the U.S. Navy after the war’s end.
Note the Japanese flag painted on her midships superstructure side.
Among the several Mahan class destroyers in the background is USS Conyngham (DD-371).
