Dust has been neatly glued by former owner to prevent loss otherwise fine. The "lendlease" former USS Buchanan (DD13) was renamed HMS Campletown and soom became a casualty of war on 28 March 1942 in Nazairre, France. Her story is fascinating as she became an example of a wrong made right by the relenting of Roosevelt to the pressure of those who pushed for the U.S. to help her friend fight the agression of Hitler. Roosevelt did not want to agitate Hitler. Think of what would have happened had he not relented and allowed the U.S. to enter into WW II.
