The fact that the 26th evening message was not found ...

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

Hello everybody, the facts are : 1) Adm Tovey reliability is no longer in discussion and consequently his letters content must be taken in the consideration they deserve. 2) I have not seen any evidence that Sir Winston Churchill was unreliable when he wrote his 3rd book. Consequently his statement ...

Churchill directions to Adm Godfrey ( Naval Intelligence Department - NID ) about how to manage the information : Good news was made to seem better; bad news was toned down, delayed or sometimes suppressed. Nothing that will surp...
