A special thanks to Keith & Janie Hodges for sending in this photo.
On 17 November I sent you a question about possibly getting access to higher res scans of the two photos of USS JUNEAU taken by USS SAN JUAN on 26 October 1942. I have received no response to that message or a follow-on I sent three days later. Maybe they went into your Spam filter like my first message.
