Myself being Transferred Between Ships

Myself being Transferred Between Ships Photo: John C. Cobb, courtesy AFS Archives, NY.
The crew of the Destroyer Escort were very expert in keeping the hawser tight even with the two ships rolling and pitching in the broadside waves while the two ships and the whole Convoy sped on. I didn’t even get my feet wet. Location: In Mid Atlantic, in Convoy.
