USS Barker (DD-213) transfering prisoners from U-185 to USS Core (CVE-13)
Here we see a group of German prisoners from U-185 on the fore deck of the Clemson class destroyer USS Barker (DD-213), about to be transfered by cable to the escort carrier USS Card (CVE-13). The U-boat had been sunk by aircraft from the Card on 24 August 1943, and 36 survivors rescued by the Barker.
