Ens. Charles E. Rose Collection. Thanks to Thomas Rose for submitting the digital image to The Subchaser Archives

Crewmen on SC 59. The davit shown in this photograph was used to lift 350-lb. depth charges (each containing 300 lbs. of TNT) to the Y-gun. Charges were stowed in in a storage room just below decks, and accessed through a hatch just aft of the Y-gun.

The hatch shown in this photo, lower left, is the hatch to the galley.
