Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All Hi Alberto and Antonio, please see my post on the conspiracy thread. To defend Roskill the post mortem is directly related to the Bismarck operation, not just one aspect of it, therefore Roskill is talking about any part of that post mortem process regarding the whole operation. Both the CM t...

Re: Conspiracy theorists

Hi All Hi Antonio, well one accusation you cannot throw at me is that I did not try. Again I respect yourself and your work. I agree that those that read the forum will definitely see that although I did not disrespect anyone or am the person you accuse of trolling, I myself was accussed of and face...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All Hi Alberto He gives a reference to Kennedy for the CM threat. He gives a reference of 205/10 for the correspondance regarding other parts of the 'post mortem'. He does not link them, but you do. His opinion on the matter is clear, it shows those that suggested a CM as being in a bad light (ie...

Re: Wake-Walker : To engage or not to engage ?

Hi All Hi Antonio I have answered your question in a previous post, Tovey is giving a distance relative to his description of Holland intending the cruisers to engage Prinz Eugen. There is no evidence that anyone else intended that they should. The missed engagement is only fact if you can, a) concl...

Re: Conspiracy theorists

Hi All Hi Antonio, please let me start by saying I respect you and your work. This is in no way meant as an attack, it is I hope a plea for calm, if I may can I try to explain my feelings on this matter as I have no right to explain anyone else's. I'm afraid I also have faced abuse, I have been told...

Re: Conspiracy theorists

Hi All Hi OpanaPointer, Yes that's it, when I first came across that it seemed illogical and unbelievable. Just a little bit of research, and I must admit I am no expert nor am I as accomplished as other forum members in this respect, and I found it was just as you describe it. There was no substanc...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All Hi Alberto, Again I accept your opinion but without implying any judgement on whether it is correct or not. Again Roskill does not say or even imply that the CM threat is the same as the 205/10 documentation, he calls the "whole post mortem examination" as being a bad reflection on Pound and ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All

Just to clarify the above post, I do not suggest that anyone's opinion or interpretation is wrong, I accept their interpretation and opinion and respect their work and their right to hold that opinion.

Best wishes

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All Hi Alberto, I must say thank you! To quote a character from a film my family watch a great deal, in the words of Sir Henry Higgins from My Fair Lady, "by George I think he's got it!". Yes we can see Roskill comments on Toveys rememberance of the "regrettable aftermath" , he also gives us furt...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi All Hi Alberto, I fully agree the above documents are facts, they show that the question of withdrawal, once all the reports, evidences and even face to face talks were established, was considered correct. They also show that the war cabinet secretaries and 1st Lord consideration of the question ...

Hi All Hi Antonio, Please believe that I respect you and your work, I'm afraid that no one has the right to assert an opinion as a fact and expect to face no opposition if there are fundemental questions that they will not answer, I certainly believe that no one has the right to offend anyone full s...

Re: Conspiracy theorists

Hi All Hi OpanaPointer, Funnily enough my first ever research was into the loss of PoW and Repulse, I too found apparent evidence that Roosevelt and Churchill discussed the forthcoming Pearl Harbour attack on the scrambler telephone and read the transcript of that conversation which had been found i...

Re: Wake-Walker : To engage or not to engage ?

Hi All Hi Antonio But do you realise that if we have evidence from more than one independant source that the cruisers tactical function was to follow and flank mark, which they did and attempted to do, and the tactical function of BC1 was to engage Bismarck, which they did, everyone did everything t...

Re: Conspiracy theorists

Hi All Hi Antonio I can say that after the Leach war cabinet papers, WW engage or not engage, loss of contact and Tovey fuel threads and the constant attacks on these officers I can understand the frustration of Dunmunro and the conspiracy theory charge. However I can also, to be fair to you and Alb...

Re: Wake-Walker : To engage or not to engage ?

Hi All Hi Antonio, I think Tovey was explaining why Hollands intention that the cruisers were to engage Prinz Eugen was not done. Holland's intention was not communicated to the cruisers, as you can see Tovey states that they were about ie approximated not exact, 15nm miles, and were not in a positi...
