I had meant to add this one


===============================================

The Pearl Harbor Attack announcement December 7 1941


Internet Archive: Free Download: Pearl Harbor Attack announcement <--- link

( as a side note , December 7th was a Sunday. Saturday nights typically hosted a battle of the bands between different ships crews , the Arizona had come in 2nd place , and the reward was an extra hour in bed for the crew. 8.00 am instead
of 7.00 am.

this explains why so many where trapped in their sleeping quarters.
At 7:52 the Japanese began their attack.
The Battleship was bombed and its front ammunition supply exploded. The ship sank in only 9 minutes taking 1,177 men to their deaths.


After the attack, the surviving members of the other ships bands agreed unanimously to award the Battle of the Bands trophy to Band No.22, and further to retire the trophy. It is now on display at the USS Arizona Memorial.

( Band 22 was USS Arizona's musicians )

Kind regards
Richard
