Fullbore Friday

USS South Carolina (BB-26). Just by a few months she could have beat the HMS Dreadnought. First of her kind. Limited operational time, really not a player in any major conflict, though she played her part in the convoy escort role in WWI and operations in Haiti and Mexico. Great pics.

I bet the 4th guy, front row was a pain in the a55 in the wardroom.

His Sailors were outstanding men in spite of him.

....and she deserved better in the end.
