Embarrassing as that was, we didn't get off totally unscathed.
It was a beatdown from start to finish though.
Hmm. So does 8-inch guns not count as heavy guns?
The bulk of the damage seems to have been done by secondaries.
So here's the track.
At about 08:00 in the morning we made contact, chased that single DD up north west
Then from 9:00 AM all through lunch time chased and hammered the enemy CL squadron.
The seas were calm enough and the danger so minimal that our crew could actually change shifts and have a relatively peaceful meal, interrupted only by the shaking from the guns being fired.
By 15:00 or 3PM, the enemy was close to safety.
And by late afternoon we are done with this sorry business.
