Official U.S. Navy caption:

 

Eighth Fleet on Maneuvers in the West Atlantic AND Caribbean--Extended maneuvers of the

new Eighth Fleet, in progress since April 19 and scheduled for completion May 27, represent the Navy's

first large-scale post-war training operation in the Atlantic. A total of 29 ships, commanded by Admiral

Marc A. Mitscher, includes the USS Missouri and the new large carriers, USS Franklin D. Roosevelt and

USS Midway, operating as a task force composed of striking, bombardment, screening and support groups.

Exercises are being conducted in all phases of sea, air and amphibious warfare, and, in addition, in

servicing forces afloat. Time out from maneuvers was had at Trinidad the end of April and at Guantanamo

the second week in May.

 

A part of the Eighth Fleet anchored in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, May 10. Midway, left; Princeton, left rear;

FDR, center; cruisers Macon, Dayton, and Little Rock, center foreground; hospital ship Consolation, right

rear; auxiliaries, left and right foreground.
