Uses In the Navy Solids and Steel Plate Alpha
The SS 280 Steelhead was my grandfather's boat in WWII. Going through a box of old sub photos I came across what looks to be the directional log for the boat from when it first shipped out of NY newly constructed heading to Pearl Harbor. I thought it would be a nice memento layout to include a scan of part of this book along with a date listing of the activities of the boat until it was decommissioned. The date of April 27, 1943 is two days after the sub officially sailed out of Pearl Harbor to start patrols in Japanese waters.
