March 15, 2009

Dear Mac,

My attention has been drawn by this blog post at the U. S. Naval Institute http://blog.usni.org/?p=1698 to the 2 September 1943 report on the loss of the three ships here: 


I bring it to your attention in case you have not seen it before. Nothing you do not already know.

Best wishes,

Even at this distance in time, all very interesting.

So, thank you for your interest.
