BROWNING ANTIAIRCRAFT MACHINE GUN on a runway at Wheeler Field,
Oahu, in the Hawaiian Islands. Early in December 1941 all the U.S. troops,
including antiaircraft batteries, were returned to their stations from field maneuvers
to await the signal for riot duty. Trouble was expected, and while Japanese
diplomats in Washington talked peace, their Pearl Harbor Striking Force was
moving eastward toward Hawaii. During this movement the fleet maintained
radio silence and was not detected as it approached the islands. (.50-caliber antiaircraft
machine gun, water-cooled, flexible.)
