Leake Revenge in the Pacific 1943. Unusual split image shows a sinking Japanese warship, probably a heavy cruiser from the look of her forward turret, slipping beneath the waves. It was the victim of the sub's commander who's pictured below looking through the periscope examining his kill. The picture of the sinking ship was based on a photo taken by a camera attached to the periscope. This was a huge technological achievement for its day. A sailor appears beside his captain holding up three fingers. We can't figure this out. It may be three kills recorded that day or three torpedos fired at the sinking ship? 13x18 mint conservation  backed.
