On one of the few calm days while the USS Davenport was on weather patrol in the North Atlantic near Greenland, the Captain asked the ship's photographer to take a series of photos of the ship. Coxswain Duncan M. Hall was given the assignment to take S1/c Don F. Roban out in a motor lifeboat so that he could take the photos. In the photo above, Duncan Hall is shown at the tiller of the motor lifeboat, with the USS Davenport in the background.
