|From:||The Commander Patrol Squadron TWENTY-TWO.|
|To:||The Commander-in-Chief, PACIFIC FLEET|
|Subject:||Summary of action and damage during Air Raid on December 7, 1941.|
|Reference:||CinCPac Conf. despatch 102102 of December 1941.|
One (1) bomb struck the small arms magazine at North East corner of hangar (building #6) and the resulting fire burned the wooden part of about two-fifths of the hangar and numerous miscellaneous squadron spare parts before being brought under control.
One bomb struck the underwater portion of ramp number four.
The conduct of all personnel was outstanding. Those living ashore reported for duty immediately. Pilots, gunners, and radiomen volunteered to fly and man landplanes with which they were unfamiliar in order to pursue enemy aircraft. A number of these volunteers were assigned to and carried out these duties until regular crews of these aircraft arrived to replace them.
