Re: Pearl Harbour and other ships

What puzzles me is that pictures of the stern of Titanic seems to suggest that water pressure forced through the stern resulted in its almost total destruction, whereas the bow looks relatively intact although crumpled from impact with the sea bed. Bismarck of course was of a much stronger construc...

Re: Hoods bell

Although I do understand the sentiments of those who wanted it left alone back then, what a memorial to Repulse that could have made in the right and proper place, where it could truly contribute to preserving her memory, and to symbolically bring home all those who perished. Being left there,wide ...

Re: Hoods bell
