USS Cassin in Ireland

The USS Cassin (DD-43), painted in "dazzle" camouflage, moored in the harbor at Queenstown, Ireland, around 1918, after repairs to its damaged stern. The ship was commissioned in August 1913 and was torpedoed off the coast of Ireland on October 15, 1917, sustaining severe damage. Jefferson County native Kelly Ingram was killed while attempting to release the depth charges prior to the torpedo strike and was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his actions.
