There was an error on page A5 of the saturday straits times (19th march). The illustration about US warships deployed off wrote "sherman class destroyers" and "destroyer escorts". The destroyers are Arleigh Burke class DDGs and should not be mistaken as WWII ships. Wad a foul up

USS Barry cited as a Forrest Sherman-class destroyer and USS Mason mentioned as a Evarts-class destroyer escort... still can't beat putting Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) next to Perth!
