I've always been amazed at what people say they heard and lived through, and always like watching documentries about it, but those photo's really do show what it was like, and I've never seen anything like them before.

Thanks

Steven Fry said on QI the other night that the only ship to have survived the Pearl harbor attack with out a scratch was the USS Phoenix, witch was later called the lucky ship.
In 1951, it was sold to Argentine & re-named the Belgrano.
Then sunk by Mrs T of course.
