    Gotta a news flash for you. That's not the Valley Forge. Note the stacks on the left side of the picture. The Valley Forge was an Essex class CV.

    When I first saw the pic I thought it was the first USS Ranger CV-4. It is not. Dunno what ship it is. Probaly an escort CV.

    Here's a link to the real PIX of the damage from January 1959. The page won't let me save full size PIX.

    Here are some PIX of the damage from the USN.

    That's not entirely true. Before the R81 there was HNLMS Karel Doorman (QH1). Served from '46-'48 when it was given back to the RN and the R81 entered the Dutch Navy.
