The picture dated May 18, 1942 shows the ship’s bow whose center, after the fatal ammunition magazines explosion,
collapsed between gun turrets No. 1 and 2 and sank. The
forward mast remnants, patrially sunken gun turret No.2
and bow sticking out of the water can be seen (photo: Digital Archives of Hawaiʻi).
During February 1942 the turrets No. 3 and 4 were removed
(photo: National Archives).
