Port Bridge wing

Chester is steaming hard, chasing Enterprises charge across the ocean.
The Jap carriers are reported to be operating south, or retiring south from their strike against Pearl.

Halsley wants to fight.

Ford stands on the bridge wing, enjoying the breeze, trying to hide the tension within him.
The news from Pearl is bad.
Very, very bad
All 8 battleships sunk..........

All 8!
surely not.
A sickening thought.
And below that thought, lurking, dangerous as a hidden cobra

2 carriers seeking battle with possibly as many 6.........

But there are other dangers already in this new, new war

"message from Ensign Cross sir!.......have sighted and attacked enemy submarine 20 miles south of our
current position!"
A submarine....directly in their path.
Holy crap.

Sweating hard, young Scotty slams the next round into the breach.
With a curse the gunner "fires" the round, and the shell, actually un fired, is ejected.
Gunnery drill........the endless cycling of shells through the gun, one after the other, after the other.
Scotties arms ache, and he is breathing hard.
That Barsted is watching from the bridge, and all of the gun crew are aware that after just
20 minutes , the rate of "fire" is beginning to lag.
They are down to a round every 6 seconds.

Scotty is breathing hard, sweating hard. They all are.

"Jesus!"
The talker exclaims, eyes widening.
He clasps the 2JV headset harder against his ears, listening hard.
He looks up, eyes wide.
"The Japs are bombing Pearl harbour again!"

A pause, a short pause
The drill resumes.
A round every three seconds.
