SIAPAN BATTLE FLAG
These flags were flown on the USS Washington BB56 during the bombardment of Saipan in 1944. They have been on display at the Officers Club at the Long Beach Naval Station until the base closed. They are now in the possession of the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, Berth 84, Foot of 6th Street in San Pedro, California.
A Special Thank You to Paul Beatty, Charles Galligan
and son Mark for saving these Artifacts
from loss and for the photographs.
Skip the Orlando vacation packages and take in some real history in LA. Treat your kids to a learning experience at the museum. Exhibits featured are diving, a Navy Hall, and even info on the fishing industry in San Pedro. Afterwards enjoy the busy harbor taking in the sights of boats drifting by in the water.
