    I always ask this so if you're a PH longtimer just ignore me.

    Oh Devil, correct but a bit weak on your math, 1 yard=3'X9=27'.
    Love the expression, I gave the S.O.B. the whole nine yards!!

    Well, those are not Americans sitting on those turrets, so it must be Japanese.

    I think. Lol

    I thought I had it, but I was confusing it with this ship:

    Anyone want to take a shot at it?

    Well, specifically I don't know what it is, from the picture it looks like a platform, not a ship, and the other clue, ie. that it took part in one of the earlier battles with the Japanese, I have to venture the guess that it's a fort/floating pillbox in Manilla Bay.....
    Thanks from Tedminator

    Name as many of the six Japanese aircraft carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor on 12/7/1941 as you can. (4 of them were sunk at Midway six months later)
