Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, ...I see here is the fact that many persons do not like to accept what has been declared by Adm Tovey , the C in C Home Fleet, directly involved into the Board of Inquiry/Court Martial request from Adm Pound, the First Sea Lord, confirmed by the Official Royal Navy WW2 Historian, n...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

What count is that we can confirm that Capt Ellis own autobiography released declarations ( Churchill archives ) were all correct and his memory was fully reliable, as it was easy to realize also by reading what he wrote on the many arguments he mentioned. Capt Ellis reliability is proven and the c...

Re: Location of the ships of the Mediterranean fleet on the outbreak of WWII

I assume you mean upon Italy's entry into the war. This volume in chapters 5 and 6 gives a fair summary of RN dispositions in the Med:

Thanks.

It's readable via google translation but I'm certain that google has problems with the technical terminology and KM acronyms.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Of course, in the subsequent signals and in Tovey's final despatches the damages were presented as being more and more severe (to try to justify the run away, that still embarrasses these guys....) So you stand by your claim that the PoW damage report and photos were faked... :lol: Do you really th...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, I can make a list of the more severe damages sustained by Bismarck , while Capt.Leach himself recognized that PoW damages were just " superficial " few minutes after the battle :lol: and even his G.O. had sent him the boy's message "Guns are OK !", but I will accept instead Mr.Wadi...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, refusing to accept the gross provocation about the Regia Marina and the implicit allusion to nationality (and nationalism) aspects ( forbidden on this forum :stop: ), I wonder whether it is praised in any Navy that the Captain of a still efficient battleship (fact, as per Leach mes...

Yes, we're getting a bit tired of A&A's sudden reliance on secondary sources.

Hello everybody,
again and again the same things because this guy can't accept the very obvious fact that the Admiralty initially wanted to Court Martial two timid officers......

You've never proven the CMDS and you appear to be admitting that you can't prove it.

Re: Bismarck analysis

Junack stated that a shell entered the port turbine room around 0930 and another shell entered a boiler room between 0915 and 0930, so things could not have been quite so peaceful as all that. I don't recall Junack ever saying that, but in any case there is little doubt that the scuttling procedure...

Re: Bismarck analysis

About the ship's scuttling, we have the testimony of Kapitänleutnant (Ing.) Gerhard Junack who survived the sinking: ." RN accounts state that Bismarck's list to port increased steadily throughout the action and that by 0940 "...was most pronounced...". Junack stated that a shell entered the port t...
