Submarine chaser SC 345 was built at American Car & Foundry in Wilmington, Delaware. This chaser served as a wing boat in Unit 16, assigned to Base 27, Plymouth, England (SC 344, SC 345, SC 1).
This is a wartime photo, showing the chaser fully equipped for antisubmarine warfare. Note the large depth charge rack at the stern.
Roland Green notes that SC 345 is shown leaving Cork Harbor: "Ft. Camden, near Crosshaven, on the west side of the harbour entrance, is to the aft, the dip in the land with houses, approx. midships, is Graball Bay, at Weavers Point is at her bows."
