The US Navy submarine S-4 sunk in December 1927 off Provincetown, Mass.  A massive, but ultimately unsuccessful, rescue attempt was undertaken.  Here diver Master Gunner Thomas Eadie, who was awarded a Medal of Honor for his actions in saving another diver who was trapped on the wreck, prepares to descend from the USS Falcon.
