This list was first published in the book "THE GHOST THAT
DIED AT SUNDA STRAIT" by Winslow, published in 1984. Bill
Weissinger (survivor) created the list in 1983 using various sources.
Otto Schwarz maintained a list in the USS
Houston Survivor's association archives. Errors are occasionally
discovered. In this case, with the
loss of the ship, the time that had passed - and especially because
of the situation in which the survivors found themselves after
swimming to shore the list is prone to some error.. "THE
GHOST THAT DIED AT SUNDA STRAIT", is a "good read" for anyone
wishing to know more about the USS HOUSTON - her glory - her battles
-- and statements by surviving crew members. (Winslow,
Weissinger and Schwarz were all ship's company).
