"Jap Repatriates Rescued After Transport sinks -- More than 4,000 Jap repatriates jammed aboard the Enoshima Maru, which recently struck a mine and sank in the Yangtze Estuary, were saved by the heroic action and bravery of crew members of the USS Brevard, a Navy cargo ship. The Brevard felt the concussion of the explosion when the Jap ship exploded the magnetic mine. Lt. John E. Elliott, USN, Captain of the Brevard, had his ship alongside the maru in a matter of minutes. Pictured about are part of the rescued Jap passengers leaving the ship at Shanghai."--caption on photograph
