Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, I knew perfectly that when a Royal Navy ship was lost a board of inquiry was going to be made, we have many examples on the archives, ... like HMS Ark Royal, HMS Sussex, ... etc etc That was not the point I was trying to make, ... the point is how they did it, ... in which way they...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Loss of HMS Manchester. The definitive account of this is given in: THE WATERY GRAVE The Life and Death of HMS Manchester , Richard Osborne, 2015 When a RN ship is lost a BofI and CM can be combined into one proceeding. However there was a BoFI that convened that found that the ship was prematurely ...

Re: 1941 Criticism of Royal Navy Officers' tactics

] Gentlemen, In the aboveletter Admiral Pound states that Rodney did not commence hitting until about 10 minutes and some say 20 minutes. My question is this, Rodney was on her way to the US for a refit,carrying spare parts and other stuff, so would she have had a fully worked up crew or just a 'sc...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, the hooligans cannot shut up..... they can note whatever they wants, I can't care less of the rant of such people ! Despite Paul Mercer's and Byron Angel's wise proposals, Mr.Dunmunro is back with his wrong statements, now accusing Roskill to be not a serious historian, but just a ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi Byron, Q.E.D. Mr.Dunmunro has lost another opportunity (given by you) to shut up, avoiding further making a fool of himself. Deniers will never accept to agree to disagree..... they are just hooligans: they cannot accept what was written by Tovey and by Roskill..... Now it's the official histori...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "as assessed by Roskill (who found the evidence of the "saga" in ADM 205/10) and immediately forgot about it for 14 years." TOTALLY WRONG: I see that there is urgent need to refresh Mr.Wadinga short memory :lol: about the reasons why he did not write in "The war at s...

Re: The loss of contact (May 24 / 25)

Hello everybody, despite Mr.Wadinga blah-blah and recriminations ( :shock: ), Pound's words are crystal clear. :dance: Bye, Alberto Yes they are "...crystal clear..." and DP is referring precisely to the morning of 25 May. Obviously, Tovey's Despatch (completed 5 July) had absolutely nothing to do ...

Re: 1941 Criticism of Royal Navy Officers' tactics

Thanks for the above. Very interesting.

828 FAA squadron had ~18 Fairey Albacores and would have given Victorious a far superior strike and recon capability.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, Wadinga wrote: "Admiral Phillips left the ship in Columbo and proceeded by air to Singapore..... Wills' perhaps excessively flattering biography of Leach" Poor Mr.Wadinga, he has no other way to defend this officer than pretending that a few days navigating alone in peacetime (Japa...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, from Wikipedia : We now know, thanks to Wadinga's bulldog determination, that the secondary sources stating threats of a CM are all based upon Tovey's fallacious post war letters and therefore can be entirely discounted. However, the praise, commendations, awards and promotions tha...
