Photographs below have been harvested primarily from the URL's listed below.

1942 National Geographic. The caption is:
" This jeep, U.S.S. Hush Hush, is the land flagship of Admiral Ninitz. It was presented to the Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet by the Army. The Admiral, at the driver's right, rides with his staff. The battleship - gray car is a familiar sight in Honolulu traffic." (via Don Moeller)
