I will guarantee you did. We spent Christmas in Hong Kong together where I was ships Shore Patrol Christmas day. As soon as we left there we headed back to the line where you supplied 16" shells to the New Jersey and 8" shells to the Canberra. We didn't get off the line again till you ran out of 8" shells and we had to wait for more to be shipped from the states. Seems like we would run from mission to mission shooting up our shells all day and then spend our rest time getting more ammo from you guys. That was the Canberra's last cruise but we left a mark behind. Come to think of it we left a man behind too. The dummy that fell overboard emptying trash from amidships and then got picked up by the North Koreans. We got him back when we got the Pueblo crew back.
