|98k||USS Fremont (APA-44) under way, circa 1944-1946, location unknown. This Ingalls-built ship emerged from conversion with a
rig of three Ingalls-style goalpost s. In April 1944 Fremont received a unique non-standard armament including three 40mm quadruple mounts (one of them
visible here forward). Note that her command facilities have expanded to port to the extent that the forward port boat davit and its boats have been removed. She
retained her davits and boats to starboard.
