Ravy, umclal Old Glory Streams in the Breeze, as Escort Carrier "B" Sails for a U-boat Hunt Soon her fighters and torpedoplanes, warming up on deck, will take off to search the seas for submarines' and to protect the convoy from surface attack. On the voyage this baby flattop was credited with six "very probable kills" in her four-day battle against a Nazi wolf pack of 11 subs (pages 516, 517). No raider approached the convoy closer than 18 miles. Carrier men, noting the glassy wake at the left and the Stars and Stripes blowing across the deck, can tell that the ship is turning into the wind for launching planes.
