Photo #: 80-G-33192  USS Seawolf
Title: USS Seawolf
Description: (SS-197) Periscope photograph of a sinking Japanese ship, torpedoed by Seawolf in the Philippines-East Indies area during the fall of 1942. This ship carries at least one landing craft forward, has a searchlight above her pilothouse and a gun mounted at the aft end of the midships superstructure. Her general configuration resembles the S.S. Gifu Maru, sunk on 2 November 1942, but she could also be the converted gunboat Keiko Maru, sunk on 8 November. Note the boat hanging from one davit amidships, as crewmen attempt to lower another boat further forward. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
