USS Wadleigh (DD-689), 1951
Here we see the Fletcher class destroyer USS Wadleigh (DD-689) at sea at some point late in 1951, probably after she was recommissioned on 3 October. She is still in her wartime configuratio, with her wartime radar, pole mast and 40mm AA guns in front of the bridge. These were replaced with 3in guns in a refit in 1952.
