from  1943-1944, SN-9700, USS Gambier Bay (CVE-73)  album
"SECOND BATTLE OF THE PHILIPPINE SEA" A salvo of shells from the Jap heavy cruiser in the distance - - marked by a circle - - falls around the ill-fated carrier USS GAMBIER BAY during the Second battle of the Philippine Sea on October 25, 1944. Heavy black smoke pouring from the GAMBIER BAY adds a somber evertone to the tragic sight. In the foreground, officers and men of a Navy escort carrier watch the dramatic action.
