USS Little (DD-79), USS Jarvis (DD-38) and USS Burrows (DD-29), Brest, 1918
From left to right we see the Wickes class destroyer USS Little (DD-79), the Monaghan class destroyer USS Jarvis (DD-38) and the Paulding class destroyer USS Burrows (DD-29), at anchor in the inner harbour at Brest on 27 October 1918. This shows the increase in size between the 1,000 tonner Monaghan and Paulding class types and the flush decked Wickes class destroyers.
