USS Paul Jones (DD-10), Guaymas Mexico, 1915

Here we see the Paul Jones class destroyer USS Paul Jones (DD-10) off Guaymas, Mexico, on 26 December 1915. Anyone serving on her between 25-28 April 1914 or 18 July-22 August 1916 and 1 December 1916 to 29 January 1917 qualified for the Mexican Service Medal, but this picture was taken during a visit between those two periods.

The standard history of the development of American destroyers, from the earliest torpedo boat destroyers to the post-war fleet, and covering the massive classes of destroyers built for both World Wars. Gives the reader a good understanding of the debates that surrounded each class of destroyer and led to their individual features.
