Battle of the Santa Cruz Islands, October 1942
Crew members of USS Hornet (CV-8) prepare to abandon ship on 26 October 1942, after she was disabled by Japanese air attacks.
Photographed from USS Russell (DD-414).
Note radar antennas on the carrier's masts and gun directors, and other details of the ship's island and port side.
Radar antennas include those for FD types mounted atop the two Mark 37 gun directors at the island ends, a CXAM atop the foremast and a smaller radar (presumably an SC) partially visible atop the after mast.
