Bangor-class minesweeper HMCS Vegreville, commissioned in 1941. On 23 April 1945, while operating off the French coast, she sustained severe damage to her port engine. Dockyard survey at Devonport, Great Britain indicated that she was not worth repairing at this stage of the war, and she was laid up at Falmouth in June. HMCS Vegreville was paid off on 6 June 1945 and was broken up at Hayle, Great Britain in 1947.

Somers-class destroyer USS Warrington (DD-383) underway in the Las Perlas Archipelago, Panama Canal Zone, 23 April 1943

Two days out of Norfolk, along the Florida coast, Warrington & stores ship Hyades encountered heavy weather. In the afternoon, Warrington received word that she was steaming directly into a hurricane. Later that evening, the storm forced the destroyer to heave to while Hyades continued on her way alone. Keeping wind and sea on her port bow, Warrington rode relatively well through most of the night. Wind and seas, however, continued to build during the early morning hours of 13 September. Warrington began to lose headway and, as a result, started to ship water through the vents to her engineering spaces.

The water rushing into her vents caused a loss of electrical power which set off a chain reaction. Her main engines lost power, and her steering engine and mechanism went out. She wallowed there in the trough of the swells, continuing to ship water. She regained headway briefly and turned upwind, while her radiomen desperately, but fruitlessly, tried to raise Hyades. Finally, she resorted to a plain-language distress call to any ship or shore station. By noon on 13 September, it was apparent that Warrington's crewmen could not win the struggle to save their ship, and the order went out to prepare to abandon ship. By 12:50, her crew had left Warrington; and she went down almost immediately. A prolonged search by Hyades, Frost, Huse, Inch, Snowden, Swasey, Woodson, Johnnie Hutchins, ATR-9, and ATR-62 rescued only 5 officers and 68 men of the destroyer's 20 officers and 301 men. Warrington's name was struck from the Naval Vessel Register on 23 September 1944.

Colorado-class battleship USS Maryland (BB-46) in the early 1920's is leaving the New York Navy Yard. The Manhattan Bridge is in the background and her top masts have been lowered to allow passage under it. Unusual in this picture is the large armoured rangefinder atop #2 turret, most of these ships just mounting the range finder sat in the rear turret.
