Re: Color footage of the US fleet 1936
BROOKLYN, the first of her class, wasn’t commissioned until September 1937. So if this film is from 1936, the only light cruisers in the fleet were the OMAHAs.
Thanks for the link. Interesting. The USA was heavily reliant on Omaha class cruisers and 4 stack destroyers in 1937, I guess.
Identifiable ship include Pennsylvania, Nevada, Idaho. Not sure which cruisers are shown yet. Omaha class and maybe SLC?
