FoxLongestDay_a.jpg (187876 bytes) FoxLongestDay_b.jpg (145575 bytes) Two photos pulled from the 1962 movie "The Longest Day" where the Fox was used to help show shore bombardment of Normandy in WWII.  Filming of the Fox was done in the Med in 1960.

FoxNaples_Shenandoah.jpg (18676 bytes)   ZielinskiFoxPreFramPic.jpg (36042 bytes) Fox in Naples, Italy prior to 1963.  Anybody know when?  Parked next to Shenandoah AD-26, unknown DD, Kenneth D. Bailey DD-713 & James C Owens DD-776, 2. Copy of c.1964 official photo from Ken Zielinski.

Fox1953FullPowerRun.jpg (47202 bytes) Looks like a Full Power Run, 1953 or so.  Great photo of the Fox at sea.  From Mort Hartman GM3 Collection, which can be seen by clicking here.

Mort Hartman GM3 1950 - 1954 lent me a 20" X 16" photo of the Fox in the Med that I scanned and gave it some Photoshop magic work to put on the web. Great photo of the Fox in her prime as a DDR.

DD829_squall.jpg (69782 bytes) With a little help from Photoshop, this rendering is the Fox from its pre-FRAM days.

Fox1953iwTug.jpg (43804 bytes)  A pretty nice photo of the Fox from Mort Hartman's collection.  From early 50's.  Original digital copy is excellent, and duplicates nicely for shipmates for a nominal fee.

Fox1953Sunset.jpg (52494 bytes)  I couldn't leave well enough alone with the photo above; practicing with my Photoshop manipulation skills and took the Fox and joined her with a genuine S. Florida Sunset as a backdrop.  I like the results.  What do YOU think?  This copy is also available in hi-res edition.

Fox1946.jpg (58624 bytes) Fox with USS George E. Davis DE-357 and USS Cecil J. Doyle DE-368, circa late '50's

FoxStern.jpg (88402 bytes)  What's wrong with this picture? Fox c. 1950, as has both sets of depth charge racks.  Notice how well the uniform of the day is maintained.....wool caps, ball caps, white hats, foul weather hat, and no hat.  You older guys sure were more 'squared away'........we don't even want to mention how messed up the hull looks.....
