April 1943 – Depth charges dropped on U-Boat in North Atlantic

In this image, the crew of the USS Spencer (or possibly the USS Duane) can be seen dropping depth charges on a German U-Boat in the North Atlantic. This is likely part of the same event where the USS Duane and the USS Spencer destroyed U-175 and then rescued the surviving crew. This image was likely taken by Jack January on April 17, 1943. It is a very similar vantage point to an image published on the USCG website.
