Sorry to post again but had another thought regarding the local control salvoes. Salvo 18 would have fired either Y1 or Y4 as Y2 and Y3 are out of action. Then we are saying that in the first local control salvo, salvo 19 Y1 and Y4 fired together which means a first delay in between 18 and 19 due to Y1 or Y4 re loading correct? Then we have a second delay whilst either Y1 or Y4 fires in salvo 20?(Y3 still out of action) If this is so why didn't Y1 also fire in salvo 20 as the delay allows a reload? This had made my brain hurt so much I've gone cross eyed!
If it's any help, watching the battle film, the single shells from salvos 20 and 21 fall only 18 seconds apart which suggests to me that they could have been from the same reload cycle.
Could they have been deliberately separated by the turret officer in order to fire a salvo pair?? OR, one may have taken a little longer to load, and rather than wait, he fired the one that was ready, then the other as soon as it was loaded?
