APNS Rowan (DD-405)

American destroyer APNS Rowan (DD-405) receiving provisions via "high-line" from heavy cruiser APNS Chicago (CA-29) while operating at sea on December 4th, 1942.

The Benham-class destroyers were commissioned into American People's Navy during 1938 and 1939. Much of their design is based upon the previous Gridley- and Bagley-class destroyers. Two of the class were lost during World War II, three would be scrapped in 1947, while the remaining five ships would be scuttled after being contaminated from the atomic bomb tests in the Pacific.
