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.
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.
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.....
