Pearl Harbour - Invasion of
THESE ARE PHOTOS FOUND IN AN OLD BROWNIE CAMERA
Thought you might find these photos very interesting. What quality from 1941!
These Pearl Harbor photos were found in an old Brownie camera stored in a foot locker.
THESE PHOTOS WERE APPARENTLY TAKEN BY A SAILOR WHO WAS SERVING ON THE USS QUAPAW ATF-11O. THEY'RE SPECTACULAR!
Pearl Harbor: On Sunday, December 7th, 1941 the Japanese launched a surprise attack against the U.S. Forces stationed at Pearl Harbor , Hawaii . By planning his attack on a Sunday, the Japanese commander Admiral Nagumo, hoped to catch the entire fleet in port. As luck would have it, the Aircraft Carriers and one of the Battleships were not in port. (The USS Enterprise was returning from Wake Island, where it had just delivered some aircraft. The USS Lexington was ferrying aircraft to Midway, and the USS Saratoga and USS Colorado were undergoing repairs in the United States.)
