Added to the SC 143 page is another image showing the chaser underway, with "5" on the bow. These hull markings, often used to indicate formation arrangements or local port designations, are often helpful in identifying chasers in photos. Sometimes a letter or number marking on the stern (other than the hull number) is the only clear evidence to go on, in trying to determine which chaser is shown.
