USS Woolsey (DD-77) sinking, 26 February 1921
This picture shows the Wickes class destroyer USS Woolsey (DD-77) sinking early on 26 February 1921, soon after she was cut in half in a collision with the larger merchant ship SS Steel Inventor. The more lightly built destroyer was hit about two thirds of the way back from the bow. Here we can make out three of her funnels and part of the hull.
