May be just the perspective, but the superstructure on Hermes looks massive.

Here's the only image I could find online of my grandfathers first ship in WW2. It was a sub chaser which I believe was based at Panama canal. He might even be one of the men standing on the forecastle. Later, grandpa was transferred to the New Jersey.

Quite a change from that to the New Jersey.  That's the CL Brooklyn behind your grandfather's ship.
