Three-quarters portrait of, from left, Navy serviceman K. A. Johnson, Melva Lillian Cole, and Navy serviceman W. N. Edwards. They are standing in a row and facing front. The photograph was taken in Portland on December 30, 1942, after Cole arrived in Portland from Fargo, North Dakota. Cole had been invited to the Albina Engine & Machine Works shipyard in Portland to christen PC 816, a submarine chaser known as Hell Hornet. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 1, Section 2, of the Oregon Journal’s December 30 final edition. It had the following caption: “HERO’S WIDOW—Mrs. Melva Lillian Cole, whose husband was killed in a submarine attack on a subchaser last June, is here to christen another subchaser at Albina next week. Meeting her were K. A. Johnson, motor machinist, second class (left), and W. N. Edwards, fireman, first class, who are waiting to ship out on an Albina subchaser.” The Journal also published a front-page story about Cole’s arrival, headlined “City Greets Widow of Sub Hero, Who is Thrilled Over Launching.” Image note: The number 39 is written on the negative and is visible in the lower right corner of the image. The text “Albina shipbuilding / Launching / Hell Hornet / 1/8/43” is written on the negative sleeve.
