Kawanishi E7K2 "Alf"

A photo today from a vintage, April 2, 1942, publication featuring a Kawanishi E7K2 "Alf" retrieved by  a motor boat in the sea north of Hokkaido. The ship in the background with the three funnels is ether cruiser Tama or Kiso which patrolled the area at that time. Both cruisers were particularly active during the Aleutians campaign.
