Roosevelt is on the arm of his son, Captain Elliott Roosevelt. They are followed by Winston Churchill, other government officials, and high ranking officers. The president’s party had just come aboard Prince of Wales from the destroyer USS McDougal (background) that acted as a shuttle between Churchill’s ship (Prince of Wales) and Roosevelt’s ship (USS Augusta) throughout the conference.
