Baltimore class heavy cruiser USS Canberra at Boston in October 1943 - she commemorated the Australian cruiser sunk together with 3 US ones at the Battle of Savo Island in August 1942. Torpedoed in October 1944, she was not repaired until after the end of hostilities. She was not de-commissioned until 1978 after conversion to a guided missile cruiser.
