Henry Miller, Wartime - 10 - Chaser Diving

Subchaser SC 208.

Henry Miller writes on the reverse: "Now don't tell me that a sub chaser will not dive, for this picture proves it. We were running with a long, rolling sea at twelve knots. Just the right speed to dive in."

As this photo so pointedly shows, the chasers were often very wet boats.
