Title:  

Battle Flag Of Spot
Date:
C. 1940s

Content Description: 

Commissioned on 19 May 1944, U.S.S. Spot registered the destruction of 16 merchant vessels on her three war patrols in the Pacific. Much more elaborate than the other flags, spot's flag not only records the number of kills but also lists the ships' names. As seen on the flag, Spot successfully shelled the radio station at Kokuzan and disabled the passenger freighter Foochow. She received four battle stars for her services in World War II.
