    Re: Martelli Table Provenance

    Wikipedia agrees with your guess:

    "Arkansas was expended as a target in Operation Crossroads, a pair of nuclear weapon tests at Bikini Atoll in July 1946."


    "

    Fate: Sunk on 25 July 1946, as part of Operation Crossroads
    "

    One of the Martelli tables in my collection has USS Arkansas with initials J.A.L. on the inside front cover so just for fun a Google search was done and to my surprise the USS Arkansas was caught on camera during the Crossroads A bomb test at Bikini Island in July of 1946. I am guessing that this was the battleships last mission.
