Photo #: 80-G-49167  Capture of German Submarine U-505
Title: Capture of German Submarine U-505
Description: 4 June 1944 Members of the salvage party from USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60) use a small handy-billy pump to dewater the partially scuttled U-505. The submarine's freeboard was extremely low at this time, with only some of her fairwater above the surface. Note the twin 20mm anti-aircraft machine guns, and the seashell insignia on the fairwater's side. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
Catalog #: 80-G-49167
