After supper I went to the lounge and waited for 7. When I got to the torpedo room I couldn't believe how many were there. The majority of all "E-6 and below" not on watch were all there. We even had an officer with us and the rest of them cheering us through the open wardroom door. Someone up forward had done a great job of taking over organization. They even had the quartermaster calling to inform us of all actions by the diving officer.
After a couple of round trips between the engineroom and torpedo room we dispersed through operations upper level waving good bye to the diving officer. The OD & Chief-of-the-watch were both kicked back in their seats with big grins while the diving officer was sitting on the opposite side of the con with his head between his elbows.
I want to thank my old shipmates for making a trim party a reality to me.
