Pearl Harbor

Took a plane out this morning for a test hop. Saw the Saratoga coming in, along with two CAs (one was the Portland) one CL (the Atlanta — a beauty) and a bunch of cans, upon whom we proceeded to make practice torpedo runs – to their discomfort.

The Enterprise and the Hornet pulled in later in the afternoon.

The dope is finally leaked out around here that the Yorktown has joined the Lexington on the bottom of the Pacific. The Japs got her in the Midway scrap. No details yet. The sinking is still highly secret dope.
