Hello everybody, @ Northcape, you wrote : At one point, Antonio referred to his military career, e.g. he indicated that only officers like him are somewhat qualified to judge on this matter (or have a deep interest in "revealing the truth").

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, @ Herr Nilsson, I absolutely agree with you. But I think it is obvious that to deserve to be highlighted in a formal letter of recommendations between Adm Tovey and Adm Pound, it must have been something that Adm Pound knew well and had already probably mentioned to Adm Tovey, and n...
