The Awful Truth

Lt. Cmdr Matt T. Sherman ( Operation Petticoat ):

"Sir, Sea Tiger was built to fight. She deserves a better epitaph than 'Commissioned 1940, sunk 1941, engagements none, shots fired none.' Now, you can't let it go that way. That's like a beautiful woman dying an old maid, if you know what I mean by old maid."
