USS Litchfield (AG-95, formerly DD-336)
At the Philadelphia Navy Yard, Pennsylvania on 5 November 1945, the day she was decommissioned.
USS Sicard (AG-100, formerly DD-346) is inboard of Litchfield. The civilian harbor craft Neshannock, of Philadelphia, is outboard. A cruiser's stern is at right.
Note the bright color line down the middle of Litchfield's superstructure face, marking the division between the two different camouflage schemes painted on her: probably Measure 21 on the starboard side; probably Measure 22, or possibly Measure 12, on her port side. See Photo # 91504 for a view of the other side of this group.
