Many Japanese glass floats were found on an outing to Meck Island. As it was thought that some Japanese soldiers were still hiding on the island, an armed escort is seen.
The ship in the background is the LCI-327 (Landing Craft, Infantry). It was reported as stranded at Bascombe (Meck) Island, Kwajalein, and destroyed there on October 30, 1947. Here it is, still very much intact here in the early '50s.
