Yep, looks like. Did they come to you as "newly discovered* in someone's trunk - despite including such classics as the Cassin and Downes, and the various shots of the Shaw (I think it was the Shaw) exploding?One that was new to me was the one of the aircraft (I assume a Zero) diving at the sub.The pics of the dry dock were new to me, too.
Yeah, that is exactly how I got 'em, too. A few new ones, but all worth while...
Unfortunately, I posted these a few months back as being "newly discovered"...only to have to put up a retraction. These photo's have been around for many years...just not as popularly shown. And the ship that it states the sailor who took the photo's was from, an Ocean Tug...her keel wasn't even laid till 1943....Check it out....sorry guys....Cookie
