An enlargement of the port bow view of USS Braine (DD-630) at long range on an unidentified date, but probably early 1944. Notice the position of the hull number and that the director does not yet have a Mk22 antenna. Braine was in the US during July 1944 when those were changed so this was probably before that. The overall dark ship indicates this is probably Measure 31. Photo source: NARA BS 129158.
Braine is shown in a close-up taken on June 14, 1944, while transferring wounded to the USS New Mexico (BB-40). This photo shows the minor damage behind the aft stack received from Japanese shore artillery on Tinian. The original color has deteriorated, so this photo is only a black and white copy. Photo source: NARA 80-G-K-6310.
Another view of the same scene, this time in black and white. The official US Navy caption for this photo does not identify this as Braine, but clearly is Braine, taken from New Mexico on June 14, 1944. Photo source: NARA 80-G-254246.
Another faded color photograph of USS Braine (DD-630) probably leaving the New Mexico on June 14, 1944. The extra panels on the stern are visible in this view. Photo source: NARA 80-G-K-1641.
This photo is possibly the beginning of the sequence with Braine alongside the battleship New Mexico on June 14, 1944. Notice the position of the hull number on the bow and the radar antenna atop the Mk38 gun director. Photo source: NARA 80-G-K-1649.
A port bow view of USS Braine (DD-630) on an unidentified date, possibly 1945, from the USS Saginaw Bay (CVE-82). Notice the position of the hull number and that the director now has a Mk22 antenna. Braine was in the US during July 1944 so this was probably taken after that. The contrast between ocean gray and the lightest gray indicate that this is still 31/16D. Photo source: NARA 80-G-335070.
