Re: The KGV and Adm fuel signals on May 26 and 27.

Re: The KGV and Adm fuel signals on May 26 and 27.

That is a clear reference to the Bay of Biscay that was at least 500 sea miles away from Adm Tovey on that moment.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody,

it seems to me obvious that the TRUTH is annoying and disturbing someone lately.

For me, ... as I wrote above, ... this case is CLOSED and the Court Martial attempt well proven.

Re: The KGV and Adm fuel signals on May 26 and 27.

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, a very interesting message indeed, confirming the very " close monitoring " and back seat driving from the Admiralty war room. Adm Tovey had already confirmed at 00:09/27 to Sommerville that he was going to engage the enemy at dawn in the morning. Course 30...

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

Hello everybody, @ CAG, we have long discussed this point and I do not think any of us will change his own opinion about it and I will not repeat my one again.
