Re: Need help identifying this structure on the stern of USS Argonne
Looks like an incinerator stack coming out of the top of it. Perhaps a strange placement for some reason or some sort of foundry for servicing?
Trying to figure out what the heck this structure is on the stern of USS Argonne 1941. Initially I thought it was a large crane base similar to the ones on Sea Plane Tenders of the time but that doesn't make sense to have one on her. Plus, the structure itself is boxed shape not rounded like the crane bases were. Any ideas?
