08 June 1945: The Atlantic Ocean - These all were taken by an aircraft from the New York Naval Air Station at a 300-ft. altitude. USS Gandy commenced an availability at the Bayonne Annex, New York Navy Yard, on 24 May, authorized to run through 07 June. Other ships arriving the same day included Cates (DE 763), Earl K. Olsen (DE 765), and Thornhill (DE 195). All were overhauled. DE 764 received a fog oil smoke generator and two 40-mm twin mounts. The Mk 4 20-mm gun mounts were replaced by the new, lightweight Mk 10 mounts. DE 765 got an identical work package. Cates got the same package but also had the British Type 147B sonar installed. Thornhill got the Type 147B sonar plus a Mk 52 gun director, plus two 40-mm twins. Olsen also was overhauled at Bayonne.
