USS Burden R. Hastings

Shown here is USS Burden R. Hastings (DE-19). Note short hull without torpedo tubes, but with breaks between the midships deckhouses, an dupper walkways fitted for heavy weather, as in British fleet destroyers. The disruptive effect of the Measure 32 'crazy quilt' camouflage pattern is readily apparent. The director for the after 40 mm Bofors mount is well shown (USN).
