1928 USS S-49 Diesel Sub Misc. Parts Crate


Recommended Posts

I thought this was really intereting. It's a crate that contained spare parts for bow & stern diving. There's an invoice attached to the side of the crate. Someone has stapled a piece of clear vinyl to protect the invoice which is dated 1928. Cool piece.

S-49 was decommissioned in 1927 and sold in 1931 to a man who used it as a tourist attraction. It was reacquired by the Navy in 1941 for use as a piece of equipment in experiments for the Navy mine Warfare Proving ground in Maryland. It sank while being moved in 1942.
