Liberty Call - Honk Kong - USS Princeton LPH 5 and BLT 3/3

 After several days at sea and numerous field exercises the USS Princeton with BLT 3/3 sailed into Hong Kong Harbor, which was then a British Protectorate.   Several Royal Navy vessels were in the Harbor and the British Sailors and Royal Marines could not have been more hospitable! They spliced-the-mainbrace buying us beer and inviting some to their ships for tattoo's and pipes!  The Royal Navy tradition still called for the 1600 (4pm) Grog which was enjoyed by all.
