Casablanca class escort carrier
The hull numbers are consecutive, from CVE-55 (Casablanca) to CVE-104 (Munda).
Originally, half of their number were to be transferred to the Royal Navy under Lend-Lease, but instead they were retained in the US Navy and the Batch II Bogue-class escort carriers were transferred instead as the HMS Ameer class (the RN's Batch I Bogues were the HMS Attacker class).
