Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ CAG, you wrote : Hi Antonio may I humbly say I'm afraid as with Alberto and the 'opening out of range' comment your ' very slowly approaching ' comment is also unfair. The only facts we have is from her log and Norfolk averaged 284.7rpm over the hour (compared to her highest recor...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson you wrote : " He ( RearAdm Wake-Walker ) turned to port ( the Norfolk ) to OPEN range" is therefore somewhat exaggerated. He did not open range but he was approaching. I know my opinion - in contrast to other members opinions - is not important by nature, bu...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, never forget that we are listening or reading their own declarations in this case. Capt Ellis at the Hood board : 425. Have you anything yourself that you want to tell us ? Do you wish to tell us anything further ? " No, I do not think I can give you anything fu...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, my personal opinion about it is that he thought his ship was at 16 sea miles as he radio communicated too at a certain time with his enemy interception signal at 05:41, ... while in reality he was already much closer than that distance, ... as we can measure with man...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, the fact that many thought they were at a certain distance, ... and reported it on their radio messages and documents too, ... at different stage anyhow and with different intentions, ... does not mean that they really where at that distance on reality.

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, given my little interest on realizing the truth about those ships real positions during that night : Electra_0700_04.jpeg Please tell me where you can find something more precise than the above map. Not to mention : http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, basically you do not have any other credible different way to logically understand how WW could have realized what he declared, ... not having like me the Icarus message text ... and you are trying to resolve the matter by defining him an " old Fox " intentional...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Herr NIlsson, I see and I have no problems to keep our own different way to see it, as you wrote the whole discussion about this isn't decisive at all. What is decisive now is to have demonstrated and determined for good that the Adm Tovey point 17 and WW declarations about his ba...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, you wrote : There can be nothing in the Icarus message to make Wake-Walker associate the distant smoke on his port bow with destroyers 45 miles astern of him. Once again you put out your own conclusions based on your " side taken hooligan " approach rather than ...

Re: Bismarck original KTB still existing ?

Hello everybody, @ all, back to RearAdm Wake-Walker very interesting recorded interview, we can now correlate his declared full awareness about BC1 presence to his June 4th, 1941 report inputs at page 88 : At 04:45 a report was received from Icarus, giving us the first intimation I had of the Battle...
