Harman (PF-79), originally designated PG-187, was built under Maritime Commission contract by WalshKaiser Co., Inc., Providence, R.I. Intended for use by the United Kingdom, she was reclassified PF-79 15 April 1943, renamed Dominica, and launched 14 September 1943, sponsored by Mrs. Andrew D. Manchester. Dominica was then completed and transferred to the United Kingdom under lend-lease 25 January 1944 as part of the 21-ship "Colony" class. She served as a patrol vessel and escort until being returned to the United States 23 April 1946. The frigate was subsequently sold to Sun Shipbuilding & Drydock Co., Chester, Pa., 27 March 1947 and scrapped.
