    Thanks for posting this Rob. Always interested in Naval History. "Tin can" sailors like submariners are a special breed.

      Have a look at "The Last Stand of the Tin-Can Sailors,' by James Hornfischer for a good description of the action that caused this tragedy....

        As an ex-Tin Can swab jockey, I love stories about the 'little boys' and their exploits. Would not have wanted to serve on anything else.
