Witte de With was one of the eight Admiralen-class destroyers built by the Netherlands in the late 1920s to replace their existing inventory of pre-World War One destroyers. The ships were designed by the British shipbuilder Yarrows, and was derived from HMS Ambuscade, being altered to suit Dutch requirements and constructed in Dutch shipyards. Entering service in 1930, Witte de With spent much of her career in the Dutch East Indies, ultimately being scuttled on March 2, 1942, having been damaged in a Japanese air attack the day prior.
 
Sweden:
The Hårsfjärden disaster was an event in the Swedish Navy during World War II. A series of accidental explosions, it caused by far the worst damage to Swedish Navy units during the era of that war, in which Sweden was not a combatant.

The disaster occurred on 17 September 1941. Three Swedish Navy destroyers were berthed in Hårsfjärden fjord near Stockholm when the torpedoes or oil tanks of Göteborg exploded; flames then also enveloped Klas Horn and Klas Uggla in an inferno.

The three destroyers were sunk, and thirty-three sailors killed, a major blow to the Swedish Navy. All three ships were later raised. Klas Uggla never again saw service; the other two ships did, after repairs

USS Ticonderoga (CV-14) fitting out at Newport News on April 22, 1944. She had been laid down under the name Hancock barely 14 months previously, an astonishing build time for a fleet carrier.
A name swap with CV-19, then building at the Fore River Shipyard at Quincy, MA occurred. This renaming was done in response to an offer from the John Hancock Life Insurance Company to conduct a special bond drive to raise money for the ship if that name was used.

Australia:
HMAS Sydney (R17) on the day of her commission at Devonport Dockyard, UK where she was built on December 16, 1948. The RAN's first aircraft carrier, she had originally been laid down as Terrible, a Majestic class light fleet carrier for the RN.

Sydney would serve with distinction until the more modern HMAS Melbourne (R21) replaced her in 1955 when she was placed in reserve. She would later be reactivated in 1962 as a fast troop transport for the Vietnam War and was decommissioned for the last time on November 12, 1973.

Two of the USN’s Ghost Fleet Overlord prototype USVs, Mariner and Ranger, are currently on a tour of the Western Pacific. The two ships, forming USV Division 1, made their first stop in Yokosuka on September 21st. This drill in Sagami Bay is not the first that USVs have made with manned vessels - that being RIMPAC 2022 - but it is the first to take place on this side of the International Date Line, and the first time the ships were placed under foreign command.
