Midget B was raised sometime after she sank on December 7 and before Christmas 1941. After examination, she was taken to the Submarine Base, where she was placed in a hole that had already been excavated for work on a quay (pronounced 'key') wall. This photo was taken not long before she was buried.

Ken-

Have you or anyone else been able to determine where this photo was actually taken. With the censorship of the picture and all? My best guess is that it was taken at the sub base out back of the HQ building near the parking structure (seen in the background). Or possibly it was taken somewhere Kuahua near the Supply Depot.

Regards!
Chris

Chris,

Here's a link to the Navy Historical Center's Online Images section for Pearl Harbor. This 1941 photo of the sub base is about the best one I have found so far.



It shows the sub base from the southeast. At the lower right you can see the piers just above the large ship parked at the supply base (Merry Point). Just above the ship and pier is a long shed, which I think matches the one in the Midget B photo. Also, notice that there is obvious construction taking place along that pier (quay wall).

I think that matches the location given by Layton, as well as the Midget B photos.

I have a short film clip of this sub I will take a look at it and get back to you. If I remember there is a truck parked next to the front of the sub with a few men walking around. I got the film from the National Archives.

Ken-
You are right. I found another photo of Midget B that I had forgotten about that didn't have the background censored on it. Using this its clearly obvious that the location was next to that long shed next to the Quarry Lock where the construction was taking place. And that would mean that the items the Navy Dept. censored out in the first photograph would have been the Tank Farm.

Regards!
Chris

Scott,

I have tried the link you provided but cannot seem to get anything. Is there something special I need to do to run this?

It's a quicktime movie, so you'll need apple's Quicktime plugin/player to view it.

Hello Ken,
Tracy has been a great help by allowing me space on his server to let people view theses film clips.  Tracy is right I put them into a quicktime movie  format.  You will need to check your web browser to see what it needs to run a .mov file. I hope you enjoy the film clip!

Here is another photo of midget B.  Looks like it was taken just prior to being rolled into the landfill.  Interestingly, you can see midget C in the background.
