Response to Escort Carrier off Samar


...that this naval engagement is famously known as The Battle "off" Samar? (dare to say "of" and you'd instantly be pounced on!) Okay, I know it was fought, not on the island of Samar but in the seas off it, but what about the many other naval battles? We do not say The Battle "off" Savo Island, Tassafarongo, Trafalgar or any other that I know of. Nor do we speak of the Battle "in" the Java Sea or "in" Sunda Strait.

Not important...just wondering.
