You've still got your "Seamans' Eye"

It is indeed the USS WYOMING (BB-32) of Battleship Division Two, Flagship of the United States Navy Scouting Fleet during the joint Army-Navy exercises of 1925.

She was present at Lahaina Roads, T.H. along with the Cruisers MILWAUKEE, CINCINNATI, TRENTON, RICHMOND, MARBLEHEAD, RALEIGH, and DETROIT plus escorts.

Image (56).jpg Sorry for the bad scan from Fahey's. Seems as though Wyoming lost 1/2 of her 12" guns as a result of the Naval treaty of 1922. Did she see active service during WWII?

I believe she (Wyoming) was being used as a training ship at the outset of WWII, and I think remained as a gunnery training vessel throughout WWII (she was actually reclassed from a BB to an AG I believe).

The Arkansas on the other hand, did see active service providing offshore gun support off the Normandy coast. If my memory serves me, she was the only US ship actively firing 12 inch shells in WWII.

I love these old ships, I only wish we could have preserved them all!
