There was one big Japanese battleship right in the middle of Tokyo Bay. Unbelievable. On close inspection it was a burnt out, no crew left aboard, battleship, the only one that was still afloat, and it was only afloat because they'd rammed it on to a sand bank before it sunk. So I looked at the ships.

It was hopeless trying to make a count of them. They were everywhere. A few days later I got the official record because I thought there must have been 300 or so ships. There were 370 warships in Tokyo Bay.
