|77k||October 1945: Philadelphia, Pa. - USS Scroggins (DE 799) at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The bridge shows modifications, and two twin 40 mm Bofors have been
added in place of the torpedo tube position. Note the rangefinder for the 3"/50 guns on the bridge. Scroggins is in Measure 22 camouflage (Navy Blue and Haze Gray); inboard
of her, by contrast is a 'Rudderow' class DE in the sombre Measure 11 scheme - overall Navy Blue.
