HMAS Canberra

Shown here are two U.S destroyers removing the crew from the fatally-damaged heavy cruiser HMAS Canberra, off Quadalcanal at about 0630 on the morning of 9 August 1942, following the Battle of Savo Island. USS Blue (DD-387) is alongside Canberra's port bow, as USS Patterson (DD-392) approaches from astern (USN Photo).
