Excellent _Kaan_!! Please continue. Don't forget the three hits an old Turkish Battleship (Haireddin Barbarossa?) made on Queen Elizabeth.

Best Regards, David

Kaan,

Are you planning to attend any ANZAC Day ceremonies over your side of the world? I'll be heading off to the dawn ceremony, then probably the laying of the wreaths during the day, and the beating of the retreat in the afternoon.
