Re: Sinking of the Coventry

Us. Battle ships had an all or nothing armor and in only one battle was it tested at Guadalcanal when The South Dakota took many hits but serviced though damaged.

I think destroyers are throw away ships but 1 billion dollar throw away ships.

Had to replace a Krag rear sight

I could not find a rear sight for this rifle at a reasonable price so I took a spare 1903 rear sight leaf and modified it works pretty good nice sight picture. I was not going to pay 150 for a rear sight I only paid $250 for the whole rifle.
