October 9th Photos Page

Onboard again today, not the nicest day either, kind of cold and foggy, but at least it didn't rain.  Today I spent most of my day up on top of Turret #2, working on the periscopes that I started on my last day onboard.  They are requiring a lot more effort than I expected, they were covered with many layers of paint, but one by one they are starting to shine again.  Other members of the Team worked up on the O5 level polishing up items in that area.  The O5 level has just been repainted and with the newly polished brass that area looks great!  A few of the photos below were taken by request for a former WW II crewman who worked in the Print Shop!  Hope the photos look familiar Charles, although I'm sure that area looks a lot different than you probably remember it.  Anyway, that's about it for this trip, my next day onboard should be October 23rd, hope to see you there!

Shot from O5 looking forward, two of the periscopes I've been working
on are visible in this photo on top of Turret #1.  The one on the right is
looking pretty good, the one on the left though, still needs more work...
