Response to After some research

Great info Bob, your gun numbers match Navy film/photos with gun numbers 41, 42 and 43 visibly stamped on the bow gun tubs. Thank you for the related drawing! One would presume the 20MMs were sequentially numbered 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31 for starboard etc. I was fortunate to recently receive a copy of the 783 Night Order Book that each O.O.D. initialed daily. The 3rd standing order for each day was "Ready gun #1, #6, Sky 9 and Sky 10." Sky what? I've also seen notations for Sky 3. It seems that no one can identify the location or usage of "Sky" locations. Not enough elevated guns so I'm cornfused. Bob, can you or anyone please explain? Thanks!
