Hi Monitor, You obviously have not read my "autopsy" (critical analysis) of NH69726 wherein I cover at least a dozen points of comparison with clear daytime photographs of the Bismarck, both port bow and port quarter views. The features identified on NH69726 clearly match the features in a port quar...

Hi Wadinga, I believe that you have your photographs mixed up. Perhaps you got your "6's" and "9's" upside down. It is NH69729 that is a blurry mess, as everyone can readily see by just looking at the photograph, and not NH69726. I have high-resolution glossy prints of both photographs, and NH69729 ...

Hi Wadinga, Thanks for participating in the discussion. I sometimes feel that it is just Antonio and I who are talking to each other. When I look at photos and drawings of the Prinz Eugen, I see railings, both fixed and foldable, at all angles all over the place. Perhaps not at exactly 45 degrees (o...

Hi Antonio, When you were providing positive evidence to support your point of view, I stayed with you to its ultimate conclusion. When you had proven your point with concrete evidence, I readily acknowledged the fact that you had been correct in claiming that the railings around the fore and aft tw...

Hi Antonio, Idid not say that discussion on NH69729 should be ended permanently. We still don't have an answer that we can all agree on, so let's move on for now and come back to it later. Do you still claim that the Bismarck was coming at the Prinz Eugen at nearly a 90 degree angle? We can still di...

Hi Miro, Dave is correct in his analysis, but I often wondered if it would not have been better for the Bismarck to steam at full speed to come under Luftwaffe protection as soon as possible and then request a tanker to be sent out to refuel her for the last stretch to Brest. There was never any sou...

Hi all, For the benefit of our members, I will repeat what I told Antonio privately to close out this discussion of railings. Antonio made a point about the fixed railing around the twin 105mm AA gun mount, and after examining all the photogrphs, I agreed with his conclusion. The photographs in the ...

Hi all, The exercise that Antonio and I just went through of examining photographs and diagrams of the Prinz Eugen to determine the location of the railing seen in NH69829 did prove a point, but unfortunately, it did not resolve the basic issue as to the orientation of the Prinz Eugen when that phot...

Hi all, As you know from reading the postings under this topic that Antonio and I have been examining photographs and diagrams of the Prinz Eugen to determine what railing is shown at the bottom of NH69729. This is necessary so that we can establish the orientation of the Bismarck in relation to the...

Hi Wadinga, I was merely pointing out that Antonio's statement that the Bismarck was coming at the Prinz Eugen at nearly a 90 degree angle could not possibly be true because at that angle the Bismarck would be approaching the Prinz Eugen at a rate of closure of 1000 yards per minute. Surw the Prinz ...

Hi Antonio, I Have seen all of the photographs on the Prinz Eugen website, but they are inconclusive regarding the type of railing used on the aft edge of the platform for the aft twin 105mm AA gun mounts on either side of the Prinz Eugen. I acknowledge that there are fixed railings around the forwa...

Hi all, I had sent the diagram that I was referring to those on my e-mail list during private discussions of various issues concerning the battle.

Hi Antonio, I would very much like to see additional photographs to confirm that the aft twin 105mm AA gun mounts had fixed tubular railings and not the fold-away type. This is critical to our joint analysis of the situation. My reference to NH69730 was only incidental to my remarks concerning NH697...

Hi Antonio, Thanks for sending me the additional drawings of the Prinz Eugen. They were very helpful in clarifying your position in the matter. I have studied the railings issue, as you had requested, but I still have a couple of questions, which I hope you can answer to help solidify my own positio...
