Mystery Photo which appeared in the Tin Can Sailors newspaper, July 2004--Vol. 28 No. 3. page 40.
It was identified by Bill Shea, SMC (Ret), USS Southerland (DD-743). Following is his response.

"From the call sign NJDF partially visible in the photo I was able (with the help of Google) to ID the ship as the USS Brinkley Bass (DD-887). The damage was caused by a collision with the USS Wadell (DDG-24) in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1966. The bow from the USS Tingey (DD-539) was used to repair Brinkley Bass."
