John Frykman STG3 – On board Turner Joy 66-69. Just to set the record straight on MT53 that night. Seaman Roberts, fellow Sonarman Solano and I were the regular watch for MT53, but that night MT53 was down so we stood watch in MT51 magazine. I was sitting against the bulkhead when all of a sudden I could hear and feel explosions. Then GQ went and we fired quite a few rounds before the MT51 GQ watch showed up. We were lucky that MT53 was down otherwise we would have been in MT53 magazine when the shrapnel was flying.
