looks like a 13
The split second of bow view looks to me as though carrier is long hull ESSEX, which would exclude FRANKLIN. There are no other pix of FRANKLIN with white deck numerals that I'm aware of. There are of RANDOLPH (CV15). This ship is possibly/probably RANDOLPH. A couple USN CV had white flight deck numerals and foul line markings late war, but FRANKLIN photos at time of her last kamikaze damage did not.
