From the service of submarine chaser SC 38:
A photo of chasers under construction. Caption: "Navy Yard New York 11-27-17. Submarine chasers under construction neaer D. D. No. 4. Bow view 3453." See also the photo of SC 38 in the Irby Collection.
And, a postcard, just post-war, from a crewman on SC 38. His note reads:
"Dec. 14, London
Am having a fine time and seeing all the sights. I get Paris leave next month. Expect to be home in time to see the class of 1919 graduates. Give my regards to the old school mother.
Russell Premo, U.S.S.C. 38"
