Photo #: NH 41827
USS S-4 (SS-109)
Interior view of the hole in the starboard side of her Battery Room, made when she collided with USCGC Paulding off Provincetown, Massachusetts, on 17 December 1927. Photographed at the Boston Navy Yard, Charlestown, Massachusetts, 23 March 1928.
A portion of Paulding's bow can be seen protruding through the hole, which is 2 1/2 feet in length and one foot in height. The hole appears to have been packed with folded fabric to reduce water inflow.
