When the order came to abandon the crippled Yorktown, he preserved the historic film footage by taping the cans of film to his life jacket. -- The carrier USS Yorktown is on fire after a Japanese bomb went down her smoke stack during the Battle of Midway on June 4, 1942. The picture was taken by PhoM2/C Bill Roy, a Navy photographer aboard the ship.
