This photograph comes from my grandfather John Baker's Warbook. It was taken while the 8th Fleet was stationed in Bizerte, Tunisia likely in the Spring of 1945. This image was believed to have been taken by Dale Rooks, although it was not signed or stamped by him. The USS Duane was stationed in Bizerte for approximately six months from late-1944 until mid-1945. During this time period, the Allied Forces had control of North Africa and the Mediterranean, so they were basically in a holding pattern.
