RARE 1920’s NAMED US NAVY PHOTO ALBUM ERNEST M. FLAHERTY USS WEST VIRGINA. Flaherty retired to Sarasota, FL where I live. Flaherty’s Album with Signed Photos of Admiral Richard Byrd from the famous Antarctica Expedition see. Flaherty was a shipmate and good friend of Admiral Byrd’s. There are NO PHOTOS of Admiral Byrd in this Album. Also, photos of friends and girlfriends. USS West Virginia, a 32,600-ton Colorado class battleship built at Newport News, Virginia, was commissioned in December 1923, the last battleship completed for the United States Navy for nearly two decades. During the 1920s and 1930s, she served in the U. Fleet, taking part in “Fleet Problems” and other exercises as part of the continuing effort to develop tactics and maintain the Navy’s combat readiness. With much of the rest of the Fleet, she deployed to New Zealand and Australia in 1925 in an important demonstration of the Navy’s trans-Pacific strategic “reach”. West Virginia’s base was moved to Pearl Harbor in 1940, and she was there on 7 December 1941, when the Japanese attacked with an overwhelming force of carrier aircraft. In that raid, the battleship was hit by two bombs and at least seven torpedoes, which blew huge holes in her port side. Skillful damage control saved her from capsizing, but she quickly sank to the harbor bottom. More than a hundred of her crew were lost. Salvaged and given temporary repairs at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard, in April 1943 West Virginia steamed to the West Coast for final repair and modernization at the Puget Sound Navy Yard. 14″-15″ wide depending on where you measure. The Leather Album Cover is 14″ wide, but the pages extend to 15″ wide. Condition: Album itself is in very poor shape. The Leather is dirty & album areas are stained. Looks like the entire back of the album is missing. Photos are still in good condition. My Consignor did not realize the value of this album and tore out photos he thought were important to sell individually. So, many photos are missing & many pages are torn and photos have been removed. My Consignor no longer knows where the removed photos are located. Pages of the album are lose, falling out, detached, and missing. Any defects not mentioned but visible in the pictures will be considered as “described”. PLEASE let me know if you need to get it sooner.

Very Good condition (like new). The New York Naval Militia’s heritage is over one hundred years old. In the 1880s, a U. Navy proposal to organize a national Naval Reserve Force went before Congress. Although the bill was defeated, the organizational plans, prepared by the Navy, formed the basis for numerous Naval Militias which sprang up throughout the States during the following few years. The New York Naval Militia was organized as a Provisional Naval Battalion in 1889 and was formally mustered into State service as the First Battalion, Naval Reserve Artillery, on 23 June 1891.
