This photo was a year 2000 eBay purchase by this webpage author.
The dealer/seller reported that Gearing is pictured here in the Mediterranean
refueling alongside 6th Fleet flagship USS Newport News CA-148.
Need some feedback: Is this Newport News and her 8 inch gun battery?
Was it 1951? In the Med.?
Anything else to add about the photo or the event...
EMAIL the page author.
(Judging from photos on the the Newport News web page,
it is very likely that we have correctly ID'd the ship.)
