USS Indianapolis at Pearl Harbor Signed by a Survivor Mike Kuryla - Autographed Photo
USS Indianapolis (CA-35) was a Portland-class heavy cruiser of the United States Navy. She holds a place in history due to the notorious circumstances of her loss, which was the worst single at-sea loss of life in the history of the U.S. Navy. After delivering the first atomic bomb to be used in combat to the United States air base at Tinian Island on 26 July 1945, she was in the Philippine Sea when attacked at 00:14 on 30 July 1945 by a Japanese submarine. Most of the crew was lost to shark attacks, as they floated helplessly for several days, waiting for assistance. Indianapolis was the second to last US Navy ship sunk by enemy action in World War II (The submarine USS Bullhead was attacked by Japanese aircraft with depth charges and sunk on 6 August 1945). Black-and-white photograph is hand-signed by Kuryla, matted and framed in wood under glass. Certificate of authenticity included. 11 x 14"
Photo size 8x10, Framed piece with matting 11 x 14
