Wanted to show what I thought was a cool way to display my submariner grouping.  He was on the S-43 pre-Pearl Harbor, then the USS Skate for 7 war patrols.  The Red Light is off of the USS Archerfish which was best known for sinking the Japanese aircraft carrier Shinano in November 1944, the largest warship ever sunk by a submarine.

Very, very cool, simply genius!  And the red light is a good segway into explaining it and the story.  Those unknowledgeable will surely ask about the red light.

I would like to know, if I had to guess would it mean battle stations?, Will the red light hurt any of the items in the display?

I think a lot of MOVIES like to use it AS IF it signifies a call to combat stations but it is commonly used for the ease of eyes to adjust quickly to night vision.  Whereas standard light takes much longer for the eyes to adjust to night vision.  And no, the red bulb wont hurt anything.  It's UV that you want to protect from.

I had a similar thought about the red light potentially causing harm, but it is very cool. I really like the presentation of everything in the case. It looks professionally done.

Thanks for all the comments.  I received the grouping from a patient of mine who is the son of this sub veteran.  He, the son, also served in the Navy in the late 60's in Pearl and San Diego .  One of his details involved salvaging items off the USS Archerfish before it was used as a target and sunk in 1968. The Archerfish received 7 battle stars and the PUC for it's service in WWII. He was allowed to keep two of these red lights off that submarine.  I do still have the second red globe and would part with it if anyone is interested in it.

Here is a picture of one of the red lights on the WWII submarine USS Cod, currently a museum in Cleveland.  Same serial number.

Great display that sets the bar pretty high.  Certainly something to work towards.  Thanks for sharing!

Yep, red for night time...not glamorous, but dang useful! They came on at lights out, or anytime the regular lights went off.

Vey cool. A fellow collector & friend of mine here in CT had a uncle on the Archerfish, he was a torpedoman. My friend said his uncle's claim to fame was that he would tell everyone that his torpedo sank the Shinano.

That's a great display you put together, with some personal history too. The light is nice, but I like the photo. It's good to see a USN display. Lifer

Just wondering, what would you take for the second red globe?

Is the accolade on the right for the Letter of Commendation ribbon?  Who signed it?
