'Beware of rashness, but with energy and sleepless vigilance go forward and give us victories.' -Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
As with many of the photographs released by the Navy during World War II, the information provided with this one is sparse: "Lookout silhouetted on the bridge of a submarine studies the sky as well as the sea—the enemy also strikes by air in this war." All we know of substance is that the photograph was taken before its release date on 4 November 1943.
