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

Hello everybody, @ Dave Saxton, thanks for your opinion Dave, ... much appreciated, ... and I fully agree with you. Probably, ... as I think personally, ... Adm Tovey was not happy at all about what was going on with all those " suggested directions and controls " coming to him from the Ad...

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

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nillson, many thanks, I see that even Sommerville had very " large " view of the Bay of Biscay, ... :wink: But the real points here are : 1) What do you think about RearAdm Power sending that message to Adm Tovey only at 02:37 that night ? Please consider that the D...

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

Hello everybody, @ CAG, what you listed above are facts and you can find them into the still available Official documents. They are all easy to be realized now after the analysis we went thru those years. If one is willing to understand and accept them is another story. I understand that is disturbi...

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

Hello everybody, @ Dunmunro, I do not agree with you, ... sorry, no dead horses here. That is a clear reference to the Bay of Biscay that was at least 500 sea miles away from Adm Tovey on that moment. Remember that despite the 00:09/27 by Tovey you are referring to, ... that should have made clear t...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody,

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...
