Greetings! I just watched, as I always do, "Destination Tokyo" and "Thirty Seconds over Tokyo" on April 18th. I know Thirty Seconds is much more accurate than Destination which is about a 100% propaganda piece. No matter. At the end of Destination, the crewmen are talking about what they're going to do now that their cruise is over -- go back to the farm and drink cider, get lots of Dinah Shore records, get married (which is as close to what real sailors plan for shore leave as a WWII-era film could talk about lol), etc. This leads me to my question -- how much time did WWII sailors HAVE in-between cruises? It's made quite clear at the beginning of this film that this is this sub's, USS Copperfin btw, 5th cruise with the same crew and the same skipper. Now that I think about it, how long did US sub cruises last? Patrol cruises, not the task-specific type cruise. Wasn't it something like 50 days or until they ran of fish? Thank you as always to the knowledgeable folks who may take the time to help me correct some more ignorance on my part! Ciao!
