The court martial at the beginning of the movie is about an incident on the USS Bayonne. As reference is made to the "forward turret" and the name is that of a city, the referenced ship would have to be a cruiser. However, no cruiser or any other type of ship in the U.S. Navy was named Bayonne before the war. In 1943, during World War II, the USS Bayonne (PG-129 / PF-21) was constructed. It was originally classified as a gunboat (PG), but this was later changed to a frigate (PF). See more
