Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Sean, Just a question please, would " an excited amateur on the spur of the moment. " be authorized to have a camera aboard during war time and be able to use it during a battle? I believe that would have been contrary to the censorship policy of Canadian warships at the time but perhaps not the cas...

Re: PoW's gunnery VS BSM's gunnery

As a "lurker" I have diligently read all the thread and many others over the years but was totally put off any educated reservations about A&As theory with regard to cowardice, collusion etc. I found it very sad that other clearly well educated and well informed posters were basically bullied off t...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello Everyone, Ok so I have followed and read all of the threads on this battle from the beginning. I openly admit that on a scale of 1 to 10 rating my knowledge of this event to those dedicated scholars driving this discussion I am about 0.5, less than 1. However that does provide me with a unique...

Re: Bismarck at DS after the second turn

Hello everyone, Just a few ongoing thoughts; 1 - the current moderated discussion is so much better than before. 2 - the issue of the degree of turn for the avoidance maneuver of the POW re the Hood, this was not just a squirrel running across the roadway, but the towering catastrophic explosion of ...

Re: Hits on PoW and Bismarck

Hello Antonio, I do not have the anywhere near the same level of knowledge about this battle as the other forum members have, no doubt about that. I clearly state it.

Re: Bismarck firing procedures at DS

Hello Alberto, I see that Herr Nilsson has asked the question, And what is the official evidence that Bismarck didn‘t stop firing. . When I look at the chart showing the fire action duration for the three ships the two German ships are recorded at 14 minutes and the POW as 8 minutes and 58 seconds. ...

Re: The D/F Controversy

Thanks for your very succinct explanation of that period of confusion. Here is the real conundrum of the Bismarck Chase and one where the procedural and reactive mistakes were indeed covered up. Captain Lloyd, Tovey's senior navigator, has unfairly been scapegoated for a mistake he could probably no...
