    These are all available from the US Navy Historical Center site.

    Was what you received one of those silly emails claiming that some guy on a minesweeper took these and that they've been stored away unseen all these years?

    I get about one of those a month "OMG! Look what a friend sent me!!!"

    All standard USN and USA photos, including some they captured from the Japanese at the end of the war, that have been in the public domain for 50 years; certainly not rotting away in some Brownie camera.

    I've seen the movie "Tora! Tora! Tora!" and knew the Japanese damaged lots of ships but I didn't know they were that bad.

    When the bomb hit Arizona it bored through the decks and into the powder and ammo magazines. There were over 1,000 1,800 pound 14" shells and enough powder to blow them all over 20 miles. All this went off in seconds, but was contained, partly, by the armored hull. The forward crews' quarters were directly over the magazines.
