A couple of weeks ago, we passed 100 subscribers. To celebrate this milestone, I would like to go back to my roots and visit the first ship made, the akitsushima.
Akitsushima (秋津洲) was a seaplane tender of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), serving during World War II from 1942 until being sunk in September 1944.
