It may have been one of the Fleet Snorkel conversion boats...

Here's a photo of the Lizardfish and it looks like it still has a rear mounted deck gun...

Here's a better photo of her with the deck gun...

Torsk is a Fleet Snorkel, and we carried ours till sometime in early 54, two years after the conversion.

Here's a pic taken in May of 53.
