Straits of Hell
Ben Mallory was a lieutenant in the US Army Air Corps. He was travelling as a passenger on USS Walker when the destroyer became involved in a running battle with the Japanese. Mallory willingly served as an ammunition bearer during the battle. After Walker and USS Mahan passed through a squall and transited to the alternate Earth, Mallory was transferred to Mahan.
When Mahan separated from Walker, Mallory was friendly with the Naval officers. He remained so after David Kaufman, an Air Corps captain, became mutinous and took over Mahan. When a PBY was found and Kaufman ordered Mallory to fly to Ceylon for help, Mallory flew back to Walker and told Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy what had happened.
