Re: Deck color of USS California 12/7/41
Thanks, Jeff. Really fantastic footage. I liked the coverage of the Pearl Harbor entrance with the anti-submarine gates.
This is a still shot taken from film footage of the salvage of USS California.
In this still the camera man is standing on the Navigation Bridge (notice the 5-L railing in the foreground) and has his camera facing aft. As he pans his camera across the ship he captures a bit of the Flag Bridge below. The deck of the Flag Bridge is painted Linoleum Brown.
