Saving A Torpedo

ACME News Wire photograph, dated April 30, 1943

A U.S. Navy submarine is shown after ramming a Japanese trawler (note the name painted on the Japanese vessel's stern). According to the original caption, the members of the sub's crew standing on the prow had just thrown several Molotov cocktails onto the trawler's deck to start the fire at left.
