Yep, because nothing says "I Loathe You" quite like a multi-kiloton KEW.... :shock: 8-)

Instead, he got promoted and awarded the Medal of Honor. Then given a destroyer of his own.

The naval principle seems to be, if the flagship is still functional and fighting, it should remain in command during a tactical situation even if the admiral is wounded or killed, especially if the situation is dire and ship-to-ship communication is poor. In WW2 they were still using flags and flashing lights.



I hate to tell you this, but they're still using signal flags, semaphore and flashing lights. They also still use sextants and take star and sun sightings even though there are about 2 or 3 different types of electronic gear eg GPS telling you were the hell you are.
