USS Carola IV (SP-812)
Officers and Men assigned to the ship, photograped at Chateau Barracks, Brest, France in June 1919. The large number present indicates that they were nominally assigned to Carola IV, a rather small converted yacht used as an accomodation ship at Brest, but were actually stationed ashore.
