In this link scroll down to the third article about the USS Recruit. Interesting item and period photographs. Didn’t know about this.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Thanks for sharing OG. The story of the young man(15 years old)surviving one, then two, then three major ship sinkings in one morning is something else. A terrible day. Its fascinating and scary how exponentially warfare technology as well as other technologies unfolded over such a short period of time.
