    Hey, I don't know if anyone else has posted this, but today is the 67th year anniversary of the sinking of the HMS Prince of Wales and the HMS Repulse in the South China Sea. I didn't have time to post a comment on the Pearl Harbor thread, so I just wanted to make sure that I at least remembered someone. Anyway, I hope the souls of all those British sailors and Japanese airmen have finally found peace in the world.

    British battleship HMS Prince of Wales and battle cruiser HMS Repulse (Admiral Sir Tom S.V. Phillips, RN) are sunk by Japanese land attack planes off Kuantan, Malaya. Four U.S. destroyers that had been sent to help screen Phillips's ships, having arrived at Singapore too late to sortie with the British force, search unsuccessfully for survivors before returning to Singapore.
