Re: Re: Cork Harbour
I remember watching the USS The Sullivans coming into Cobh during the summer.
In addition to 3 or 4 RIBS -all flying the Stars and Stripes- buzzing around the warship, every gun on deck was manned by crew in full battle dress.
I wondered what they do when visiting a country that is not classified as ‘friendly’
Friendly….. know of a British Captain that was so worried that he would come under fire going up river he requested could he go up river ‘astern’…(backwards) so he could get away quick if the natives got hostile… he was serious…..
