Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello All, It has been observed: as it is Bismarck position relative to PG (from photo NH69722, in keel line with PG at around 5:55), and her distance from enemy, thus her relative course (from PoW salvo plot from 5:55 till 6:00 None of this has any supporting evidence. We are currently dealing syst...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Antonio, Since I could see no North representation or geographic grid (or scale) on the scan of Reimann's sketch and since it copies the apparent error of the Gefechtsskizze in the 06:00 range value, your suggestion of rotating it to align with heading 220T seems very sensible, since one is ba...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Antonio, first of all has to be sure that the page he is looking at is correctly oriented and the Prinz Eugen track is correctly showed at 220° True course, and since you provided an except from your own colour scan you are the best person to confirm this. I have only access to the scanned ver...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello All, My suggested point of synchronization( bearing and timing ) for the above listed 2 tracks will be initially starting from the 06:00 battle time for several reasons. We can use the Sigurd Reimann ( PG torpedo officer ) map to connect ( bearing only, no distances) Am I correct in reading th...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello All, Bill Jurens as moderator. A splendid turn of events. Uniquely qualified and even better a volunteer. I might suggest, as a stepping off point that the re-construction of the track chart would require successive agreements upon the relative position, speed and course for each ship in the a...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Antonio, You asked, very reasonably: Instead I will keep on asking him what does he have to try ( surely unsuccesfully as more than obvious ) to challenge Paul Schmalenbach 1978 reconstruction of the Bismarck track based on the photos, the PG map and the PG film analysis : and I pointed out, a...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello A & A, Are you telling me this puerile repeated printing of a photograph of someone (presumably Jasper) sticking his tongue out has some significance for you? to challenge Paul Schmalenbach 1978 reconstruction of the Bismarck track Interestingly this map shows Bismarck steering east of 180T so...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Alberto, unable to understand what I intended for another person I understand you can't keep your mouth shut when you are supposed to be guarding Antonio's secret stache of information he has shared only with you, some of which must be highly embarrassing for your scenario. He has quoted out o...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Antonio, Reconstruction, scenario, imaginary fabrication, call it what you will. Well, I have read the secret document that Jasper wrote to Raeder after the mission, have you ? Since Alberto gets all his access to original material from you, or from what more generous and less partisan posters...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Alberto, Cornered by all the evidences already presented (there is NO need of any further info to reconstruct the battlemap) As has been the case since the beginning you and Antonio attempt to distort and control other people's independent assessments by withholding material in your possession...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Alberto,

Again? Really? Oh OK.
Well, I have read the secret document that Jasper wrote to Raeder after the mission, have you ?

What's in it?
Who found it, you or Antonio?
Why are you hiding it?


All the best

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Bill Jurens, Thank you for this most reasonable suggestion. It seems likely "honest and intelligent men" might very well come to different conclusions even were they given equal access to identical information . Here the difficulty lies in situations like: Well, I have read the secret document...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Alberto, I would say you and Antonio have done all the things you accuse me of except I have called no-one liar, perjurer or coward purely on the basis of my speculations. On the Gefechtsskizze as a trustworthy official document: the Prinz Eugen "Gefechtsskizze" submitted by Prinz Eugen ( Kpt ...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Northcape , You are quite correct to keep explaining the investigative process of using evidence to generate a speculation, which might then be proved by independent evidence. However when you read It is not a difficult or complicated work to do since there were only 3 change of course done by...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello All, Regrettably I cannot see what Bill does: I am gratified that the level of invective seems to have decreased in recent posts, and can only hope that the trend continues. Having just been accused of lying by Alberto, I see no improvement in his behaviour, which remains as boorish and intemp...
