What was the name of the first naval engagement that took place entirely in the air without the surface vessels of either the Japanese or the US fleet firing directly on each other?
The Battle of the Coral Sea, early May 1942. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com Answer I would have to disagree on a technicality and say Pearl Harbor. We fired on a Japanese mini sub trying to infiltrate Pearl Harbor but a sub, especially a mini sub, isn't really a surface ship is it?

Details of the first fleet where and when the journey started names of the ships the route they took what they achieved in the first fleet?
11 ships in the first fleet they are HMS Supply HMS Sirius Charlotte Alexander Friendship Lady Penryhn Prince Of Wales Scarborough Golden Grove Fishburn Borrowdale . they g…ot there from the 18th to the 20th of January! they left from Portsmouth, England and stopped at santa cruz, cape town, and Rio De Janeiro. In the late 1700's England was becoming over crowed with convicts. They could not send any more to America because of the revolution and all the prisons and ships in the harbour were full. They had no choice but to send them to New Holland (Australia), the land that Captain Cook had discovered on his voyages in the Endeavour. They sent 11 ships. There were 6 convict ships, the Alexander, the Charlotte, the Lady Penryhn, the Friendship, the Prince Of Wales and the Scarborough. The other shops were the HMS Sirius, the HMS Supply, the Fishburn, the Borrowdale and the Golden grove. Captain Arthur Phillip was appointed governor of New South Wales and he travelled on the HMS Sirius on the Journey to New Holland..
Australia as a nation did not exist when the First Fleet arrived - it was called either Terra Australis, New Holland or New South Wales. In consequence there was no Australian… Navy (that came in 1911, 123 years later). Two Royal Navy ships were part of the First Fleet - HMS Sirius and HMS Supply.

Can drywall joint compound be used directly on either a wood surface or a wood surface that has a primer coat?
I am painting my garage door and was going to attempt to use a paint brush to go over the door cracks with joint compound before I painted to make the surface look flawless. W…ould this work? No it will not work, because when the drywall compound dries totally it will lose adherence and crack each time the door is moved. It will soon look bad again. Much better to use an acrylic caulk like Alex ll or similar.
i think it might me be sundita
No. No murders took place aboard the First Fleet. Furthermore, noneof the convicts wee transported for murder or manslaughter. Theywere all convicted for things like burglary,… petty theft, fraud andso on. They were surprisingly non-violent.
