Morning all...

I found two more pics of island details of the past Pearl Habor yard time. They are in a cruise book I have as pdf...
The book says they were taken during a MC ride when the ship crossed the equater. They show a "new" style of flag boxes and a slighly different arrangement of the walk way to them from the front bridge. Also there is a thing hanging there right aft of the flag boxes that I do not know what is is for yet. The boxes can not be seen from this angle but I am sure they were there already.

cheers
Uwe

Great photos!

If you mean the long, thin boxy thing fixed at a angle, that would be a set of loudspeakers.

Or, possibly angled red deck lights for night flight ops. White lights at night were more than likely not used.

Note as per Aircraft Carrier Bulletin No. 11 of May 1945.

this picture was recently posted that illustrates rafts on the flight deck. In my opinion this would also be where personal flotation devices would be *if* this was strictly a Magic Carpet mod. I don't have any other explanation for what they are, however.

Hello Steve

No...I mean the squarish box mounted directly behind the flag box...looks like another flag box mounted 90 degree to the two others...

cheers

Considering that it has a 12" signal searchlight at the top of it, I think it's just an extension to the platform that wraps around the flag bags.

I completely forgot I had posted this - Soft Ball layout for Aircraft Carriers with photos.

Very interesting... helps explain some of the odd deck markings you sometimes spot in photos. The foul line in that photo sure doesn't look like chalk!

So, who's going to be the first modeler to incorporate a softball diamond into their carrier deck scheme?

Hello Tracy

Thanks a lot for those photos...especially since it has another shot of the boxes as well. Also the connection walk from the bridge to the flag boxes shows really nicely here. I have enlarged and slightly re-worked the picture...
Now if only we knew what the boxes were for and when they were installed. BTW...the rounded "new" flag boxes I have also not found on any other carrier during that period.

thanks
Uwe

The Hancock Assn newsletter arrived but was full of reunion stuff mostly. The secretary tells me another one is coming out probably next month. Stay tuned.
