Here we see the Fletcher class destroyer USS Hart (DD-594) leaving the oiler USS Kaskaskia (AO-27) after refueling on 23 December 1944. The two ships were being used for experiments in how to improve the speed of refueling, and the Hart refueled from the Kaskaskia fifty times in two weeks, ending on 23 December.
