The Ships of Great White Fleet

"Battle Ships at Night in San Francisco Bay, Cal."

BATTLESHIPS

 

A "hull number" makes a U.S. Navy ship truly unique. For example, U.S.S. Missouri (BB-63) sailing in World War II can be distinguished from the U.S.S. Missouri (BB-11)  sailing with the Great White Fleet on the basis of hull number.  (Ships of a similar design will very likely have consecutive hull numbers.)
