Essex class carriers

#1
Four Essex-class carriers at anchor at Ulithi, Caroline Islands, about 1600 on 2 Dec 1944; L to R: Wasp, Yorktown, Hornet, Hancock; viewed from Ticonderoga with sight of her F6F-5 Hellcat fighters .
At the point this picture was taken, my father was aboard the Yorktown. He was a Hellcat pilot.

Cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I have seen, it seem to me most strange, that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.

Wow. One hopes these things are never needed, but respect for those who are ready when that call comes.

Sorry Corn, it must be some kind of setting thing. Something different between the US and Europe.
