USN 1036055: USS Bennington (CVA-20). Passes the wreck of USS Arizona (BB-39) in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Memorial Day, 31 May 1958. Bennington's crew is in formation on the flight deck, spelling out a tribute to the Arizona's crewmen who were lost in the 7 December 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Note the outline of Arizona's hull and the flow of oil from her fuel tanks. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
A subject I've recently become interested in is Berlin Iron jewelry. Made in Germany as way for ladies to support the war, there were "gold for iron" drives and ladies changed their gold jewelry to iron or steel. I found all this out when I bought a 5-dollar brooch from a junk seller (looked a lot like this one) and then discovered it dates to about 1840! :D
