USS Missouri

From the Archives

USS Missouri, Pearl Harbour
27 August 2008

USS Missouri

We were on a tour which took us all around Pearl Harbour*. It was a little strange to be touring the USS Missouri after the glorious dead of the USS Arizona.

O beautiful, for spacious skies ...

But all the pomp and waving stars and stripes quickly moved that little black cloud onwards

Until ... oop - there it is.

* I wish I'd been able to take a photo of the FBI building in Hawaii - it looks like it has windows, like any other office block type building, only it's on the edge of nowhere and the windows are all filled in.

  1. How terrifying! Very little scarier than deep waters and big, morbid looking ships.
