Default USS Guadalcanal (CVE60) During WWII

My father was on the U.S.S. Guadalcanal when U-505 was captured during WWII.

I have a few original photos of the ship taken during WWII (not that day). Here are a couple. The tower photo has some blotched out areas. Photo became kind of poor over the years.

Sea was not very rough so I suspect it was in a huge turn. I think I have a photo showing the turn wake.
