Thanks, Mr. Gollin. The argument (if indeed it is such) is actually moot for my purposes in drawing FIJI for Conrad Waters, in that it is supposed to depict the ship as of the spring of 1940 when she most definitely did not have a catapult. The reason for this date may have to do with showing what the original design was to look like, since it will show the ship with all the hull portholes (which she retained at lthat time, her external degaussing array, and the two quadruple .50-cal. machine-gun mounts still installed near the mainmast on the after superstructure. She also, of course, at that time lacked any radar fire control antennae, although she did have the Type 279A air-warning radar system. Thus, the FIJI drawing will contrast with other drawings that will be in the book that will show sisters in later, different configurations.
