USS Plunger (Submarine # 2)
Alongside a coal dock at the New York Navy Yard, Brooklyn, N.Y., July 1906.
The names of three of the submarine's Commanding Officers are written on the print: Lieutenants C.P. Nelson, P.P. Bassett and C.W. Nimitz.
The print was presented to Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz by Chief Torpedoman's Mate H.J. Chagnot, USN (Retired), who wrote on its reverse: "Admiral Nimitz: Remember this old battle wagon? As I remember it you were skipper of it after 'Juggie" Nelson. You may keep this for yourself if you see fit. Sorry to hear about English he was my skipper on the old 'D-3' and O-4."
Collection of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz.
