May be just the perspective, but the superstructure on Hermes looks massive.

Here's the only image I could find online of my grandfathers first ship in WW2. It was a sub chaser which I believe was based at Panama canal. He might even be one of the men standing on the forecastle. Later, grandpa was transferred to the New Jersey.

Numbers 31:17-18
"Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

Psalm 137:9
"Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

Quite a change from that to the New Jersey.  That's the CL Brooklyn behind your grandfather's ship.
