USS Porter (DD-59), Queenstown, 1918
Here we see the Tucker class destroyer USS Porter (DD-59) at Queenstown, Ireland, probably during 1918. The fore and aft 4in guns are clearly visible. The port amidships gun can also just be made out, in front of the first funnel, as can the port twin torpedo tubes - on just to the rear of the rear funnel, and the other near the aft superstructure.

Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
