Photo #: SC 130991
Cavite Navy Yard, Philippine Islands
Fires at Cavite resulting from the 10 December 1941 Japanese air raid.
Barge # 181 (YF-181 ?) -- perhaps visible in the right center -- is loaded with burning torpedos. At the time this photograph was taken, small arms ammunition was exploding in the center of the heavy blaze on the left.
The submarine whose bow is visible at the far right is probably USS Sealion (SS-195), which had been hit by bombs and had settled by the stern.
Photograph from the Army Signal Corps Collection in the U.S. National Archives.
