|131k||High-speed Transports (APD) at Mers-el-Kebir, Algeria, in late 1944. The APDs present, in center, are:
USS Greene (APD 36) -- closest to camera; USS Osmond Ingram (APD 35) -- next inboard;
USS Barry (APD 29);
USS Roper (APD 20); and
USS Tattnall (APD 19). At the extreme right is USS Hilary P. Jones (DD-427).
This photograph is dated January 1945, but was most likely taken, circa late-April-early May 1944, when Tattnall as flagship of Transport Division
(TransDiv) 13, the only high-speed transport division in the Atlantic theater arrived in Oran, Algeria. Note old fort in the background.
