DD-505 Thorn

Thorn (DD-505) and Turner (DD-506) were awarded to Federal Shipbuilding, Kearny NJ in 1940 as 1050 ton prototype destroyer escorts capable of 35 knots. Cost concerns led to DE type ships receiving less powerful plants and these ships were cancelled 10 February 1941 and re-ordered as Gleaves (DD-423) class destroyers DD-647 and 648.
