    Embarrassing , USS Stickleback 415 in Collision with USS Silverstein D 534 I believe the crew all survived.

    here is a photo of her from 1945 stickleback-title-66530.jpg. She certainly looks a lot different in this photo must have had a major re design at some stage.

    Hi Mike
    Thanks for that pic, I think the yanks reduced the number of warships in the Pacific for that same reason, more navigation training LoL.

    Were you still working then Des ? Before the RN vessel went aground I had spent 8 months or so doing a bottom survey working out of Sydney for Optus it was estimated to take 12 months . It was commenced just off Bondi Beach and to to finish in Auckland , think it took 2 years finally as was long gone elsewhere when completed. However Norfolk Island was always where I made for in bad weather which was frequent Norfolk Island was ideal as could anchor anywhere around it depending on wind direction and have done so on frequent occasions . Where the RN went aground I have anchored many times in the same area and found the holding ground very good , so I must have been lucky , hope the warship didn’t find a spoil ground and blame me for it. Cheers JS

    Well John you were lucky that you didn't have that Costa beauty on the bridge with you when you where off Norfolk looking for safe anchorage, , who knows what would have happened.
