USS South Dakota ‎(BB-57)‎ and two destroyers alongside USS Prometheus ‎(AR-3)‎ for repairs, probably at Noumea, New Caledonia, in November 1942.

South Dakota received damage in both that battle and in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal on 15 November 1942.
The other destroyer may be USS Lamson ‎(DD-367)‎.
