    a Brownie camera looked like.
    UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    These photos are absolutely incredible....Read below the first
    picture and at the end...

    ...............................

















    Pearl Harbor

    On Sunday, December 7th, 1941 the Japanese launched
    a surprise attack against the U.S. Forces stationed at
    Pearl Harbor , Hawaii By planning his attack on a Sunday,
    the Japanese commander Admiral Nagumo, hoped to catch
    the entire fleet in port. As luck would have it, the Aircraft
    Carriers and one of the Battleships were not in port.
    (The USS Enterprise was returning from Wake Island ,
    where it had just delivered some aircraft. The USS
    Lexington was ferrying aircraft to Midway, and the
    USS Saratoga and USS Colorado were undergoing repairs
    in the United States .)

    In spite of the latest intelligence reports about the missing
    aircraft carriers (his most important targets), Admiral
    Nagumo decided to continue the attack with his force of
    six carriers and 423 aircraft. At a range of 230 miles north
    of Oahu, he launched the first wave of a two-wave attack.
    Beginning at 0600 hours his first wave consisted of 183
    fighters and torpedo bombers which st ruck at the fleet in
    Pearl Harbor and the airfields in Hickam, Kaneohe and
    Ewa. The second strike, launched at 0715 hours, consisted
    of 167 aircraft, which again struck at the same targets.


    At 075 3 hours the first wave consisting of 40 Nakajima
    B5N2 'Kate' torpedo bombers, 51 Aichi D3A1 'Val' dive
    bombers, 50 high altitude bombers and 43 Zeros struck
    airfields and Pearl Harbor Within the next hour, the second
    wave arrived and continued the attack.
    When it was over, the U.S. Losses were:

    I get the same as SV.

    How did you 'insert' the photos?

    That's what usually happens if you try to copy and paste images into a thread.
