    651 in Roman Numerals is DCLI.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    On 4 September 1941, the American destroyer USS Greer had been signalled by a British bomber, that a German submarine was hiding in the vicinity. Greer found sound contact, and started to pursue the U-boat (U-652) from close range. The aircraft dropped 4 depth charges, and left the scene, leaving the two fighting ships. Soon after the U-boat fired a torpedo at the US warship, perhaps believing she dropped the four bombs. After this USS Greer went into attack, and a 2 hour battle followed, during which she dropped 19 depth charges, and the U-boat fired another torpedo, without results. President Roosevelt used this event in his campaign to convince the US to go to war, and the "undeclared war" between U-boats and US escorts escalated dramatically.

    655 and 656 are telephone exchange prefixes for my home town, Sidney, BC. Unfortunately 657 is not one of them.

    However, 658 is the exchange prefix for the Saanich/Cordova Bay area of Victoria.

    6-71 DETRIOT

    THE ORIGINAL SCREAMING DTOILET. The only engine ever invented that you could put 5 gallons of oil in and it would dribble out 10.

    MACK END 672

    185 horsepower it was one of macks first thermodyne engines. Run good but you needed the triplex or duplex trans becouse with the low power you had to shift if you even saw a hill.

    Umm. Miller, I think youse is off the count there Big Guy. The counter reads 663, but you are writing 673.....

    With this post to put us back on track, we should be reading

    664

    However, I fully agree with you on the 671.... P.O.S. for sure.

    Oh... great...

    With all the discussion about the 999 Plan I thought my computer was infected for a moment when I looked at the monitor.

    Then I realized I was reading the screen upside down.

    Leave it COT to cause a big ruckus.
















































    Now I can go sleep for about 668 minutes...
