I was watching the History Channel last night, they have a new series called "Boneyards". Last night's episode was on Ships. The 1st 20-30 minutes was focused on the salavage efforts following the attack. They showed featured video footage of most of the salvage work from the Arizona, actual video of the removal of forward mast and main turrets. I've only seen photos of these activities versus film footage, so it was quite intereting. They also showed footage of the righting of the Oklahoma and salvage efforts on the Nevada, California and West Virginia. Lots of images/film that I've never scene before. The piece ended with footage of the Battle of the Siragao Straits were 4/5 of battleships were Pearl Harbor veterans.

Look for the show to be rebroadcast again.

If I had to quibble I'd nail them on accuracy here and there.. they were talking about patches and showing the lever arms on Oklahoma as examples. Lots of little details like that, and they suggested somehow that Pearl Harbor lead to Oriskany being reefed... I don't see it. I'd believe Bikini more than Pearl.

Let's see what this does...

Sorry I missed it. The San Bruno branch of the National Archives contains a great deal of the written and photographic record of the salvage, though not film. A disappointment in the writing of Resurrection-Salvaging the Battle Fleet at Pearl Harbor was not being able to include many of the charts and photographs I found. The editorial team of course places limits on the number of photos so you naturally have to be very selective. But I was greatly disappointed to learn (at the last minute) that charts, drawings and diagrams I had picked (particularly of proposed schemes for raising USS California) were unable to be used because they would not reproduce well enough. Someday I hope all of that material can be placed on-line.[U]
