Five of the U.S. Navy's WWI era cargo ships (including one built as a passenger ship) had one smokestack, two single masts and a raised hull island forward (forecastle).
To facilitate identification, these vessels have been placed in two sub-groups, one of foreign built ships and one of a single type built in an American shipyard.
This page features a table (with links to individual ships) of World War I era U.S. Navy cargo ships with one smokestack, two single masts and a raised hull island forward (forecastle), plus a photograph of each ship in this group.
