That which we call a rose…

Recently, I stumbled across a bit of odd trivia from World War II. I discovered that four ships, from three different navies, all had a very, very odd distinction in common.

The four vessels:

The aircraft carrier USS Robin (United States Navy)
The battleship Arkhangelsk (Soviet Navy)
The light cruiser Murmansk (Soviet Navy)
Patrol Boat No. 102 (Imperial Japanese Navy)

It’s been a while since I’ve done a trivia question, as they normally last 45 minutes or so, but I’m going to toss this one out. And no fair Googling…
