Hey Mark, photo-bucket sure put a wet blanket on free image hosting in forums didn't they, several months ago... find posts with graphics and right-click to see where propbeanie and others host their images and check those sites out.

I think you have some space here in your Subsim profile but not sure how that works. I'd like to see your Silversides photographs, sure many others would too.

A Topic:
Photobucket wants $399 per year to post images on Subsim

You could try imgur for image hosting.

ok, let's give this a try.
The USS Silversides Submarine Museum resides in Muskegon, Michigan on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.



The Mission of the USS Silversides Submarine Museum is to honor the men and women of the military, preserve military history and provide experiences that educate the public about past and present military history and technology.


Silversides received twelve battle stars for World War II service, and was awarded one Presidential Unit Citation for cumulative action over four patrols. She is credited with sinking 23 ships, the third-most of any allied World War II submarine, behind only the USS Tang and USS Tautog. The tonnage of the ships sunk by Silversides amounted to 90,080 tons, second only to Tang's total.






Here is the range gauge on the 4" deck gun. Notice that it ends at 9800 yds.



here is the breech section of the 4 incher. due to the morning sun and deck limitations, this was the best i could do.



here is the infamous Mk14 with the Mk16 head.



Here is the 40mm AA gun. No one is allowed above the deck or the conning tower or the exterior bridge.




Here is the 20mm. Again, due to the sun and lack of available deck space, this was the best i could do.




here is the sail. Notice the two scopes and the S-band radar receiver. Search Lights too.




Who can guess what this is a photo of? (off-limits to any sub veterans)



here is the control room...diving planes area. My father spent most of three years during the war as a bowplanesman.



Galley. Due to space limitations i could not fit the coffee urn into the photo. It was the size of Rhode Island.





Enlisted bunk area. There are at least 36 bunks. there were 13 in the forward torpedo room and 12 in the aft torpedo room.



Aft Engine Room- Fairbanks Morse
