The story behind the painting...


The 371-foot long Narwhal was built by the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine and commissioned in 1930. Together with Argonaut and Nautilus, she mounted the largest deck guns of any American submarine: two 6-inch guns; one fore; one aft. 

This painting shows her on her 12th war patrol in June, 1944, when she surfaced off Bula Ceram island in the South Pacific, and pounded the gasoline storage facilities and pumping station with 56 rounds from her 6-inch guns, leaving the facilities ablaze.

The Narwhal was stricken from the navy list in 1945 and sold for scrap, but her two 6-inch guns survived and today stand guard at the Naval Submarine Base in Connecticut.
