|82k||01 August 1944: San Francisco Bay - USS Connolly (DE 306) was photographed from an aircraft from Alameda Naval Air Station, California. Even by this date
the deck pattern has been painted solid deck blue. The angled depth charge racks and two pairs of depth charge throwers of the Evarts class can easily be seen and may have been required
by the lack of deck space in order to maintain the size and effectiveness of the pattern of the depth charges entering the water.
