CGC Spencer vs. U-175, 1943
Official Caption: "CORNED BEEF BREAKS GERMAN ARROGANCE: German prisoners from a sunken U-boat in the North Atlantic find the chow on a Coast Guard combat cutter to their liking. Their bitter arrogance, evident immediately after the capture, disappeared in a hurry and gave way to broad smiles as mess attendants spread a dinner of corn beef and cabbage on the table. It was their first meal aboard the cutter and the best they had eaten in weeks."
