Jack, At least you stayed out of trouble along that line. All you had to worry about was staying alive! Les
You're right about that. I didn't fly combat, so all I had to do is head for a slit trench during air raids - and pray like hell on the convoy in the Phillipines when the Kmakazis sank 8 ships out of our convoy.Never did figure out how to dig a slit trench in a steel deck.All you could do is put your steel helmet on, pray and photograph the bastards as they hit the water around us. The Navy gunners (bless their Navy souls) knocked 25 of them out of the sky.
