Re: British v German rangefinders

USN rangefinders in directors were also stabilized. The gyro in the device that put ship's roll and pitch angles into the battery computer/rangekeeper to correct gun positions also were used to position the battery director and its ranging devices. But nothing corrected for the ship vibrations caus...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, let's fix the major errors in a recent post from Mr.Dunmunro: Dunmunro wrote: "Maybe the fact that all 3 RN ships stated that the action ended at ~0613" Which action ? The anti-aircraft one of PG ? PoW reports nowhere mention 6:13. :lol: Tovey had ALREADY issued his preliminary rep...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, if only those " hooligan/deniers " were going to stick to the facts and not jumping up and down on any interpretation they like to try to sell to this historical fact we were going to live more easily. It is obvious that Stephen Roskill and Graham Rhys-Jones did not want to provide...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, despite the attempt of Mr.Dunmunro to justify his false statement regarding the supremacy in number of the RN over the KM (these were his own words, and the destroyers of RMI and IJN, as well as their speed/armament were not taken into account by this guy :lol: ), back we are to th...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Of battleships, the RN had a superiority (I think to remember, at that stage of the war) of 13-1 in numbers over the KM :lol: :lol: :lol: Bye, Alberto The RN had 15 battleships in commission as of ~0558 24 May 1941. Only 4 of these, PoW, KGV, Renown and Repulse could do 28 knots or better, with 7 b...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

For war propaganada reasons it was decided to : LEAVE IT ! ( Cit. Sir W. Churchill ) The RN did censure RN officers during WW2 over their conduct in battle. Churchill did write "leave it" but he didn't do it for war propaganda purposes, unless the UK was publishing their war cabinet minutes...which...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

I will add another couple of facts to the above indisputable fact list : 1) It is a fact that on May 28th, 1941 Adm Pound asked a Board of Inquiry -> Court Martial to Adm Tovey and it is a fact that after the war Adm Tovey explained the whole situation to Stephen Roskill in writing. 2) It is a fact...

Hi HMSVF,
you wrote: "it's hardly fair to say Leach was constantly "babysitted" or "childminded""
Possibly, but it's also impossible to say that the Admiralty confidence in his nerves was untouched, after the Denmark Strait.


Bye, Alberto
Classic troll.
