This video download contains the actual, uncut 16MM footage filmed by a crewman who served aboard Aspro during WWII. The footage, both color and B&W, cover his time aboard, which was during the 5th, 6th, and 7th war patrols. Converted to digital with an HD camera.

A fantastic look into life aboard a WWII submarine at war. -Very unique, never before seen footage-

B&W scenes include great shots inside the boat and of many of her crew. It also includes great shots of the deck underway and the sail with lookouts.

Color footage is all filmed on the deck. There are also periscope views, including Mt. Fuji (the boat is clearly in Sagami Wan), smoke in the distance, and then a small vessel (perhaps a tug) going down (she goes vertical then plunges). Unfortunately, however, the photographer used too much zoom, which cost him brightness. I corrected this, but it is still hard to see, but it is there. And no way was I cutting combat footage.

A great sequence of an aviator being rescued. He appears to be pretty happy!!

There are scenes of target practice with all guns (including rifles and pistols), including shooting at a huge sunfish. Later, they are trying to explode a floating mine.

It ends with the boat pulling up to a dock (I do not know where) and Navy Brass coming aboard.

Simply put, this is pretty cool footage. I mean 16mm home movies from a WWII submarine at war. How cool is that??!!!

About 17 minutes running time.
