USS BUNKER HILL AND USS WASHINGTON AT BREMERTON
The Essex-class carrier could be USS Bunker Hill (CV-17). In mid-May of 1945 Bunker Hill was severely damaged after being crashed by two successive kamikazes off Okinawa and suffered great loss of life. She sailed to Bremerton and was still there when the war ended. The fast battleship is probably North Carolina-class battleship USS Washington (BB-56) which was at Bremerton for a refit when the war ended.
