The Lend Lease program is a well documented policy during World War II. However after Pearl Harbor the US surface fleet in the Pacific was weakened. Has gesture of good faith the Royal Navy turned over several of their prized TOG IIs to the US Navy. Thus the HMS Brighton was renamed the USS Kickapoo.

 

Real life history of the ship:

USS Kickapoo was a double-turreted Milwaukee-class river monitor, the lead ship of her class, built for the Union Navy during the American Civil War. The ship supported Union forces during the Mobile Campaign as they attacked Confederate fortifications defending the city of Mobile, Alabama in early 1865. She was placed in reserve after the end of the war and sold in 1874.
