|93k||undated: The United States Navy destroyer escort USS Daniel T. Griffin (DE 54). Shown is a good overhead view of the bridge and deck layout. Note the
torpedo withdrawn from its tube for servicing, the quad 1.1" gun fitted aft, and the hose being played on the anchor whilst weighing. Disposition of the midship gun tubs is well shown
as are eight K guns, each with a reload rack adjacent.
