Libération 🇫🇷
———
French sailors cheering and starring at their homeland more than 4 years after they left her. They are seen aboard the light cruiser Émile Bertin during Operation Dragoon, the Allied invasion of Southern France, in August 1944. Just imagine how you'd feel, returning home after 4 years in exil and finally freeing your land.

The Others of Pearl - Part.3
____________________
Another Cruiser casualty.
.
On December 7, 1941, there were 8 cruisers moored in Pearl Harbor, and the OMAHA-class light cruiser USS Raleigh (CL-7) was one of them. The 17 year old 7,000-ton (standard) vessel was moored at berth F-12 on the west side of Ford Island, aft of her sister ship, USS Detroit (CL-8), and ahead of USS Utah (AG-16). Incidentally, this line of ships opposite Battleship Row that ended with USS Tangier (AV-8) aft of Utah was where the aircraft carriers would have been berthed had they been there on the day.
.
USS Raleigh was one of the first ships hit by the first wave of the Japanese raid; targeted by a pair of Nakajima B5N2 'Kate' torpedo bombers, but only one Type 91 aerial torpedo hit the cruiser portside amidships. Quickly taking on a severe list to port, rapid action from the crew kept Raleigh afloat, and the cruiser soon fought back adding to the hail of antiaircraft fire claiming five Japanese aircraft that morning. Several of the crew were injured but none were killed. Towed into the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard on Dec.22, Raleigh would remain there undergoing repairs before departing for Mare Island and the mainland in late February 1942 for an overhaul and permanent repairs. Leaving San Francisco in late July 1942, USS Raleigh (CL-7) served the remainder of the war in the Pacific, with the majority of that time on station supporting operations in the Aleutians, before finishing the war on the east coast of the U.S. and in the Caribbean on training cruises. Raleigh was decommissioned on November 2, 1945; and scrapped just three months later.

After the Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, Halsey had to reshuffle elements of the fleet to both keep a USN presence near Guadalcanal and protect the damaged Enterprise from further attack. This former would be critical in keeping Tokyo Express runs below the desired level; the latter would hamper the use of the battleships for another two weeks. On 28 October, Admiral Scott shifted his flag from USS San Francisco to USS Atlanta (CL-51), and that same day departed for Guadalcanal with 4 destroyers. She is shown here refueling from CA-38 two weeks earlier on the 16th.
-
Atlanta and her escorts opened fire on the coastline early in the morning of 30 October, with fire directed by a Marine liason and an Airacobra pilot. After several hours of paint-melting bombardment, she returned to Espiritu Santo for escort duty; USS Helena and USS San Francisco were similarly detached from TF 64 to be escorts, and on the 2nd of November, US troops and artillery were successfully put ashore as the spearhead of a concerted reinforcement effort. The Japanese landed their own reinforcements that night, and would do so again on the 3rd. On the 4th, Helena, USS Sterett (DD-407) and San Francisco, now carrying RAdm Dan Callaghan, also pounded the island’s coast.
-
The Japanese took note of the enhanced USN presence, sending smaller runs to Guadalcanal during the 1st week of November. A large air attack on the 5th was foiled by weather, but that night the Express was finally able to make a large run South; 15 destroyers and the light cruiser Tenryū successfully reached their destinations in the dark. The next day, an American auxiliary transport was torpedoed and beached, while PT boats harassed and damaged a pair of destroyers in the morning hours. A transport force to the North was attacked by Cactus aircraft as well; operations were ramping up. On the 8th, Admiral Halsey himself visited Guadalcanal while reports listed heavy transport activity up the Slot; he was witness to a bombardment by an IJN destroyer at night, driven off by PTs. That same day, Admiral Yamamoto decided on a massive reinforcement operation, and US troops landed in North Africa.

On this day, 19 November 1941, Leander class light cruiser HMAS Sydney (II) Captained by Captain J Burnett, RAN was sunk in action following a fierce encounter with the German raider HSK Kormoran off the coast of Western Australia.

HMAS Sydney was the pride of the Australian fleet. All 645 crew were lost.

(NOTICE: please look at previous post, raise awareness). Here is the naval memorial in Biloxi, Mississippi. It has names of those who have served and were wounded or killed in battle. Pictures 3 and 4 are of cannons from a French or Spanish warship back in 1699 possibly; pic 3 explaining it. The mast you see on number 2 is from the USS Biloxi, a Cleveland class light cruiser that served in WWII and the Cold War. And the last shots are of course of naval guns. I don’t know the caliber, if I’d guess, 3” guns? But anyway, here ya go😋 #memorial #usn #navy #cruiser #lightcruiser #biloxi #ussbiloxi #mississippi #coldwar #cw #wwii #ww2 #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #1699 #french #spanish #warship #sailingship #shipwreck #salvage #cleveland #guns #vacation #2017 #cannons #monument #restinpeace #veterans

HMS Emerald. I believe this is the ship my grandfather was stationed on during the D-Day landings at Normandy in June 1944. This picture was taken on December 23, 1943 in Kilidini Harbour, Kenya. There's many barely legible signatures on the photo, presumably from other shipmates. #ww2 #oldship #hmsemerald #panorama #bnw #blackandwhite #instahistory #ig_histogram #histogram #royalnavy #lightcruiser #familyhistory #nautical_images #bnw_legit #filmphotography

Both Belfast born, both in foreign waters, but making the most of it. HMS Belfast, a light cruiser launched in 1938 from Harland & Wolff, served both in WW2 & Korean War.
