Yeah, nationalism still trumps facts...
Someone makes a dubious assertion, and it is parroted ad nosium as an article of faith by those with a jingoistic inclination.
...we're impeaching Raven's baseless assertion that the Japanese strafed survivors in the water.
The record, as well as your own post--with reference--supports my position...and now we have statements indicating that machine gun ammunition expenditure during the sortie by the Japanese was--at best--negligible. http://members.boardhost.com/Warship/msg/1531247783.html
The position that willful, deliberate and sustained strafing of the survivors simply isn't supported by anything which has been presented here.
