Response to Re: Escort Carrier off Samar
The pic appears on page 23 of "Aircraft Carriers of the World" by Bernard Ireland. An otherwise good publication that covers every aircraft carrier ever built and is right up to date with information on USS George H.W.Bush (CVN-71) and the new British Queen Elizabeth class carriers.
On the subject of escort carriers - these were all steam powered of reasonable output yet they never had funnels or visible exhaust ducting. How was exhaust gasses and smoke expelled?
