    Since I am a matelot on an aviation site I thought this NGOAT (No Guarantee of Accuracy or Truth) dit might be appropriate for your amusement.

    Now my Uncle Albert knew a thing or two about Kamikaze pilots. In fact he was the only sailor in WWII to ever win the Distinguished Flying Cross without even leaving the deck of his ship. He was Gunlayers Mate on HMS Repulse in the South Pacific when they were attacked by a Kamikaze. He was loading shells into a six-inch gun for the Royal Marine Gunlayer when it all happened.

    They had zeroed in on a Kamikaze Zero diving towards them and were firing away. My Uncle Albert slipped whilst loading a shell and caught his left hand in the breech. Not noticing, the Gunner slammed the breech shut, taking off Uncle Albert's hand as clean as a whistle, and fired. Uncle Albert said, "Bugger me", in fact he may have said it twice he was so upset. They didn't manage to shoot the plane down, only badly damaging the canopy but somehow Uncle Albert's left hand got into the cockpit and strangled the Jap pilot. This action saved the ship and Albert got the DFC for it.
