Deserving of a bump.

I always find seeing footage of ships sinking to be terribly sad and awful, no matter the size of the ship.

Wow! I have only seen pictures of this, didn't know there was a video too!

How is it possible that 2/3 of the crew was still on board when the ship obviously was sinking?

My 'friends' father was on the bow of Barham when the magazine went off. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Apparently the ship started sinking and the magazine exploded just four minutes after the torpedoes hit....
