    SC-148 112k Inclined, possibly for repairs, at Brest, France, in 1918 or 1919. Ensign Sheldon Bradley, USNRF, was attached to the USS SC-143 during this period. These two boats were assigned to the same patrol group during the war. The boat had been tied up in shallow water for repairs. An extremely low tide caused the list. From the collection of Mr. Peter K. Connelly who was a Boatswain on the SC-143 in 1918-1919. "Ensign Bradley's Drydocking Venture, Brest"
