- Action: One of two dozen escort carriers, the other 23 all going to Great Britain as the Ameer class. Very similar to the Bogue class, however they were laid down as escort carriers rather than being converted from existing hulls. Prince William was the only one retained by the US Navy. Operated as a transport in the Pacific until mid-1944, whence she took up training and transport duties in the Atlantic. Returned to the Pacific in Jun 1945. Placed in reserve postwar, she was redesignated CVHE-31 in 1955, but never reactivated. Stricken in 1959 and broken up in 1961.
