Hello, new member here, wanted to say hi and show a couple of items I've had a long time that my grandfather picked up over the years in his business. The most interesting is a Japanese life boat binnacle taken in battle, given to my dad by my grandfather about 60 years ago. It has a hand written presentation attached from the captain and crew of the submarine to their admiral with names, date, location... roughly 10 years ago while I was looking up the subs name on google I found a book on submarine warfare that had a page dedicated to the events around the battle and retrieval of my compass binnacle.
Hello, I am new here and was just curious if anyone knew of the S44 submarine, the attached picture is of a plaque I recieved from my great grandfather. He had written on the back that it was removed at Philadelphia navy yard in 1943, but the rest of what he wrote is now worn. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
