Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello everybody, @ Wadinga, you asked : Are you saying that you have actual evidence, which you may be unwilling to show, that some of the 42 people Kennedy communicated with, knew about the threat to Wake-Walker and Leach and declared it shortly after the War ? Just a simple yes or no will suffice...

Hello everybody, a question that does apply to this argument : what is the role of the " Prisoner's Friend " ? Into the Royal Navy discipline process in which circumstances this definition is used ? Where this role apply, what kind of activity is the " Prisoner's Friend " supposed to do ? Of course...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

If ever there was a single doubt about Adm Tovey letters written to Stephen Roskill about the Board of Inquiry and consequent logic intention of a trial for Court Martial for those 2 Officers ... the recently found May 31st, 1941 letter from Tovey to Pound is removing all possible doubts about it a...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hello Dunmunro, How true. What is bizarre is the repetitive denigration of "Pursuit" a book which Davies, who was present in the Ops room, apparently endorsed. Kennedy's novel, full of heroes, honorable decisions and consensus from British side since only his exposure of the CMDS story, which for i...

Re: New Book on the Bismarck - December 2018

Just for reference, the announcement itself is correct, except for the Associate Professor of International Relations part. Nobody seems to know exactly where that came from... None of us are professors. Bill Jurens Bill hi. I hope you'll be taking a very hard look at the evidence as to when Bismar...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Naval historians Al Capone and Elliot Ness clashed repeatedly on this topic in an increasingly bitter dispute with Ness claiming a conspiracy theory, which Capone vigorously denied due to a lack of documentary evidence:

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

There was nothing in ADM205/10 that supports Tovey's claim of a CMDS attempt by the Admiralty.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

His above post, without any proof supporting his speculations about what was in the mind of the protagonists of the "saga", is a clear demonstration of his difficulties, while we have Tovey's letters (1941 to 1962), McMullen IWM interview , the "ultimate" papers of ADM 205/10 (pag.331-334) and the ...

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

If they read this thread we won't have to write to them. All roads in this sorry story lead back to Tovey, and his post war letters. There is no other source for a CMDS except the private letters of a man with a failing memory.

Re: The Court Martial for the Denmark Strait

Hi Duncan, of course you are a better historian than Roskill to judge about Tovey accounts..... :negative: We don't need other than Tovey (and we do have , but even giving you another proof, you will invent another excuse...), his letter from May 31, 1941 ALONE would close the matter about the "sag...
