"Victor" Bashing at sea

Post by BobbyC »

I think the alleged event that Jack Anderson wrote about was entitled "Blind as Bats" I would not really know if it realy happened, as I was sleeping in my bunk, outboard the library forward of MCC, where I dreamed there was a big "thump"... the next day I went to the Canopus when we visited the Los Alimos and a friend from rad con asked me if something really happened! Oh well, who knows!

Don't forget the several PDC's that exploded being dropped from the AGI that was trailing us. Seemed to be marking our position as the Victor hit us. Kelly Ray and I had just hit the rack after securing the maneuvering watch. when it started. First we heard the PDC's that sound like a deck hatch slamming shut. Kelly Ray said I'm totally sure I secured every deck hatch. Then the "hit".
