Thomas Robins, Jr. (in the middle of the photo), served as CO of SC 178. This photo, submitted by his grandson, Toby Goodyear (one of the kids in the photo), shows members of the crew and family members at a reunion celebration.
Subchaser SC 178 served as Unit Leader of Unit 21, stationed at Plymouth, England. Later SC 178 was assigned to Base 6 (Queenstown/Cobh, Ireland), and after the war participated in minesweeping operations in the North Sea.
Thanks to Toby Goodyear for submitting the photo to The Subchaser Archives.
