I will give a hint: it spent the better part of its life as a coast guard vessel.

Another hint. Before being transferred to the coast guard it served as a salvage vessel during WWII.

Not exactly the name that I was looking for but the USCGC Acushnet (WMEC-167) did go by the name USS Shackle for a relatively short period at the start of its life.

Not the clearest picture but it will have to do.

Flag and name are wiped out.

One province or the other, what does it matter ;)

Holland Class protected cruiser. Six of them build. All of them photograhped at this specific location,

of which I am not copmpletely sure: I guess it is the Nieuwe Diep at the Den Helder Naval harbour.

The fun of those old postcards is that they are all the same, only the direction the smoke plume is going differs :)

Always a crowd on the Quay, as the ships were mostly going to the east (hence the white colour , and the sun-tent on the rear deck).

The most renowned of the cruisers was Gelderland, taking Kruger to Europe after the Boer-war. Getting a second life as German anti-aircraft ship in WWII (under the name of Niobe).

The other five were less famous, and were shorter lived.

 

 

Here's the next. Not too difficult, I think :)

I don't really feel up to hunting down a ship for you guys to guess right now so I hand this one over to whoever wants it.
