Happy's little brothers, a batch of NROTC midshipmen, rode along in Summer, 1958. They saw what makes a destroyer, a good destroyer, tick. And Happy guaranteed that they enioyed themselves, too. Who knows? Someday one of them might be Gun Boss. ls V viumsyg -X ,Pg --l,g15s'f-5, , 5 'HX ,a ,, V -1 K7 W :fl sg, is J'-,, ,K ,XY ,M - ,, . , , -5r,,,,,L .-.- ,.-1, l 3 .,i1L,y1,, l. , ,X 1 mf -. ,L j ROYAL 0 hagwslgygmwg V1 I l l ' l C l I l X ' .' 2-.ar-M ' -I,-,-g - A -Q .

There HAMNER ioined over a score ot vessels, including Canadian, British, and U.S. ships, tor the British Columbia Centenary Re- view on 15 July. Princess Margaret, who had been invited to the party, too, inspected the long lines of ships from the Canadian DDE, HMCS Crescent. Hap- py, with the rest of the crew, wore dress blues and cheered with the best of them. From Esquimalt, the HAMNER moved down the Straits ot Juan de Fuca, made a flying stop at Everett, Washington, and headed south tor a San Diego breather. ,, , - . ff f , . . . ff.ffff,,,,--df f f ffl- . - - J 1 QL ' ,,,fL...l,,l.37" f 7 X ' L V N V,,VV,!

Instead he listened to the CruDesPac band play "China Night," and "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now," and "Somebody Stole My Girl." Real morale builders, he thought to himself.

The next few days Happy spent dodging a lady of uneven disposi- tion whose full name was Typhoon Olga. But afterward there were days of sailing into the setting sun, mostly because one must sail into the setting sun to get to Japan. On lO December, Happy chugged into Yokosuka Harbor, helped repel a fierce boarding party that later turned out to be Japanese laundrymen and tied up alongside the USS PIEDMONT lAD-l7l.

Yokosuka, as anyone can tell you, is within liberty dis- tance of Tokyo and Yokohama. And, then again, there is a place called the Alley that is a lot closer. There one can find myriad shops and iust a few less bars than there are stars in the sky. While people were humming "White Christmas" back home, Happy was doing some lonely shopping in the Alley and at a strange and wonderful place called simply IIA-33.11 ff" F While the folks were decorating the tree X back in the States, Happy was entertaining a group of Japanese orphans on the ship. Then there was a ship's party at the PO Club. Christmas, 1958. "Wish I were home" was the thought. Happy was back in Yoko- suka in March. This time he visited the big Buddha at Kamakura and stood in the shadow of Fuii-san. When he left Japan this time it was "sayonara" for a while. , -W-. ,.,,. ....,,...... ,W ff i""c-. rin 'ff 5 3' 1 iiiii s W CM 'l 3 . ? gf if fa gmosa d l lift d e sr 9, V 4 ,-,f , c. , i Happy's stint with the Taiwan Patrol Force wasn't exactly a laugh a minute. Patrolling the Strait beat was Happy's first iob in WestPac and he worked at it. He spent weeks bouncing through the no-man's water off Red China. Though his primary mission was reconnaisance, buck- ing the chop and the funneled wind that came whistling down the Strait was a pretty serious collateral duty. On duty in a place where readiness might mean survival, Happy scanned the sky and the sea, and the watches kept coming up with annoying frequency.

Kaohsiung is a town teeming with Chinese Nationalist troops and uncounted slit-skirted ladies. The beer is unique. And the city is sometimes smelly. But Happy went ashore once or twice, because there comes a time when one must get off the ship for a while. Happy spent a quiet New Year in Formosa. By Valentine's Day he was on his way north, heading for Japan and an open-sea rendezvous with the USS Ranger. r 3 533 , X 4p tiiqmi , 5, 5 , X' ' N ' x N12 QQ' I .3 " S PC 'K7 A r p l CCC , og. f iyx lf - -1 Z" as .r N t '-'f J 'Yi' ,l 1 , N., ,X-ND x 5,2 X f V '1 Q IA: Z 5 l T fl l -4,1 , 50,471 1 , A, Rf JW H91 W 4 X, , ff MW , fffgxyyv Mr 7 ff W X J - "1 'f" 'X Q f r 1 V 1 '- J 1 - - t laziffwf r 5 , Airy' D-25 ' ,,yP ,.,',""A-- ' I - .S',5iqsf,f w Q14 - f.,ws ?' 1"NMX I3 A wi-p,f f ' 5 ,,. f 50s Q- ggi, 3:81141 7, ,A 55. iff?

Then he sighted an OBJECT onthe horizon - on most of the horizon. The OBJECT kept get- ting bigger, which objects have a habit of doing the closer one approaches them. But this one kept getting bigger and bigger and BIGGER. The OBJECT was initially classified as Macy's Department Store lAtloatl. But Happy knew that Macy's didn't deal in F4Us and A3Ds.

From plane- guard station to fueling station, from Japan to Okinawa, Happy worked in the shadow of the carrier. Bow down in choppy seas, riding long night hours in position as rescue destroyer - this was the working part of the cruise-. The zest was less for Happy because, blinking the salt spray out of his eyes he could see that the big boat was gliding along like a swan in a mill pond. Once in a while an oiler would happen along and then there were fueling stations to be manned lno green stamps for this kind of pumpingl and a highline detail to set. Day in and day out the iets rose like ungainly birds from the flight deck and made their night approaches over the HAMNER's red truck lights. Happy felt good. He felt good because the HAMNER belonged out here, doing a destroy- er's iob and doing it well. f cns.l:mmua:x,nn: u--.-.4 --qsvnm-n anna-xvxzu sf . -if - r r, V ,f 'f V s , 7 ' , ff iwsffll km-ffgisii f f 'f 5 A , '- + 4 f .s vw law f ' fig- f nf-X .Q 'f m1.s.,,,,s-rf- , .nf QW ,ffwffw , -, " , ' wi. , .f - A - 'V 'ws - , A.

A few visits to Gab Gab Beach, but mostly work cmd more work. The ship had many miles ot empty-ocean steaming between Guam and Australia and home. Happy wanted them trouble-tree. Turn-to was the game from sunrise to late afternoon. The working hours were "tropical" and then some. But things got done. By mid-April, Happy was ready for his Australia iaunt. ,- a 1 ,y .234 L, iq, 1 !

The edge is off, excite- ment ebbs cmd new places are iust other places to be left behind. There comes a time to go home. Happy started back up the long track after Aus- tralia. He stopped at Suva in the romantic Fiii is- lands. He was greeted on the pier by a noisy, re- splendent native band and a throng of wide-eyed onlookers. Just a flying stop, but Happy got around - from inky-dinky fish pie at the Grand Pacific to a wild- ish late evening dance at the Town Hall. Then he was on his way again.
