      I'm very slowly working my way through the first part of "Keynes' Cruisers," and while reading about the preparations in the Philippines I was wondering - have you ever read "The Fleet the Gods Forgot"? It's a very detailed account of each ship of the Asiatic Fleet in late '41/early '42, and of their crews.

        I have not read that particular book; I will see it out at the library next time.

      'November 17, 1941 2154 twenty six miles southeast of Tainan"

      ITYM southwest. "Twenty six miles southeast of Tainan" is in the middle of southern Taiwan.

      "Re bagpipes, they are awesome except when some asshole played them at 600 am near your dorm room on Saturday mornings. Not the best way to wake up hungover."

      Ever read George MacDonald Fraser's "McAuslan" stories? One of them is "Johnnie Cope in the Morning". In this battalion, the pipe band blows reveille every Friday, by playing "Hey Johnnie Cope" at full blast just outside the junior subalterns' quarters.
