Note also that the boat is painted in the standard British scheme for motor torpedo boats as this boat was transferred to the UK without spending any time in US service and was designated MTB-408 in the RN.

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
