    Thanks! I've been working on this for several days to get it "right".

    Now I've got to figure out how to get Cleveland out of hot water with Nancy for letting Kirby talk him into flying with him.

    (little back story info) Nancy used to work for the Kirby family as a babysitter in her teenage years for young John. So she's literally know him all his life, she also understands the family schism (which is good, because I'm still working it out myself).

    Wow, I think your writing style might be my favourite so far! This was really flowing and easy to follow.

    Haha, if I can ever write the whole "back-story" some of that can be explained. Cleveland Davis is an American, but born in Jamaica (both parents are Jamaican) and raised near Mobile Alabama and eventually flew fighters in the Air Force. He and Kirby worked at Vaught together in Nashville after Kirby graduated from Vanderbilt.

    Kirby has been estranged from his family because he didn't follow the path set for him (Annapolis followed by long career in the US Navy or doctor/lawyer). He struck out to do his own thing, and now thoroughly enjoys his self-made fortune and the occasional opportunity to tell his rich mother and father to stick it.

    HMAS Hobart has a nice ring to it.

    I wasn't even aware that there was an Adelaide class!
    The extent of my naval knowledge ends in 1950.

    Oh jeez! I looked up the Adelaide class frigate. Gave me the willies, I served aboard the same class vessel here in the USN. The USS Groves and USS Doyle.

    I just looked at the Anzac class, much better (and meaner) looking, plus the gun is in the proper place. But it looks as if name HMAS Adelaide is going to be taken by an amphibious assault ship, looks a lot like our own Wasp class.

    HMAS Majestic perhaps? Or Hobart? (been to Hobart, I really liked it!!!)

    If you're naming after a city, how about Adelaide? It isn't small, but it's less famous than Melbourne or Sydney. Also, it's a really cool name.

    Well, the storyline has the Aussies making target acquisition and destroying the rocket once I "get it working". That being said, do you have a suggestion for a good name for an Australian ship? I figured Melborne or Sydney would be take by something bigger.
