I feel very certain at least one is in English. ;)

"USS" aren't signs to me though..more like letters [you naughty boy!]  :o

The back has Japanese and English on it; I assume this is stylized Japanese print.  (The publisher and manufacturer is Australian.)

Wonder how long it will take the Arizona to rust away?

When all that's left of her will be photos and postcards....

Good Hunting.

Wonder if the relatively warm water--because it's so shallow--speeds up the deterioration?  Isn't this considered a cemetery, too?
