At the End of World War II.

To replace the slower Liberty ships, Victory ships were built, starting in 1944. These photos were taken on voyages after the war.  At this time, their mission was the exchange of prisoners, taking German POW's to Le Havre, and picking up American troops in Bremerhaven.

Is the Victory ship docked on the right in Bremerhaven, Le Havre, or Antwerp?

Please contact us if you can identify.
