    If only they could spell harbour, the Japanese might have missed it.

  • Thanks Anorak, Brownie & Cheryl for publishing fabulous photography of a horrible slice of history. War…yeah…huh…what is it good for?…….powerful pictures perhaps?

    Those are official Navy photos that were released to the general public in 1941 and 1942 and are available from the National Archives where I obtained most of them more than 25 years ago. The Quapaw was not built until late 1943 and more than likely the film would have deteriorated beyond the point of any use. I should also add that the person who supposedly took the photos would have needed a magic carpet to be in all the places that are viewed including one that was taken at Kanehoe NAS which was over 8 miles from Pearl Harbor.
