Details, details!

Jerry I don't know if these help, but I was already at the Kidd today anyway - so I took a bunch of detail shots. Talked to a person at the Kidd about the "Tub" - torpedo blast shield. They think (didn't really know) that it had gotten so rusted out they removed it. I'll ask someone in the main office this week if I have time.

If you like I have more pictures?

By the way I'm sure you know if once you click on a picture - click on it again and it opens it up on another page and you can see if full screen + zoom in more!
