Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Postcard image of the heavy cruiser Houston in the Gatun locks of the Panama Canal.  The Houston made several passages of the Canal in the 1930s, the latest in mid-1939 per this wikipedia article (if you take wikipedia as accurate for this type of information.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Houston_(CA-30)
The Houston was sunk at the Battle of Java Sea on 28 February, 1942.
