Note 1: Photographer PH2 Joe Greco relates the following: "Little Rock was arriving in this shot.... it is being towed to the pier alongside Springfield. They stayed at the pier for a few days before mooring out in the harbor at which time the Springfield left to go back to the States. I took the shot from the pier. The Marine (on the bow) was waiting to raise the Union Jack.
