The photo is from a scrapbook created by George Graham Smith of USS SC-254 that was broken up and sold on Ebay. Submarine chasers pictured are SC-178 and SC-329. The group left New London on 28 June 1918 and after stopping at Bermuda on 2-7 July and at Ponta Delgada [Azores] on 20-27 July arrived at Brest [France] on 5 August, Plymouth [England] on 11 August, and their initial duty station at Queenstown [Ireland] on 21 August. Arethusa probably escorted the group from New London to the Azores
