Japanese "Type A" Midget Submarine

At the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard in December 1941. This submarine had been sunk by USS Monaghan (DD-354) in Pearl Harbor during the 7 December 1941 Japanese attack and was subsequently recovered and buried in a landfill.
The submarine's hull shows the effects of depth charges and ramming. A hole visible in the after part of the conning tower may be from a 5" shell.
The upper background had been overpainted for censorship purpose

Photographed soon after its recovery near the entrance to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, circa late July 1960. It had participated in the attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, but had apparently been unable to enter the harbor as its torpedoes had not been fired.
