Sean my friend, why I have to post again what you have realized so well ?
I will not post either my old stuffs nor the new ones, as you may have realized from the other thread on CS1/BC1 tracks simply because there is a miserable person which is plagiarizing ( copy with no authorization requested nor credits given ) all my material and information released ( and not only my one, since a lot of material was stolen from this website as well ), so I will not keep on feeding the unfair guy with hardly researched stuffs. He is not even able to understand and realize completely the material so incompetent this guy is in reality.
In fact you can see into a recent publication for example photo NH 69731 and NH 69725 were PoW became Hood and Hood became PoW. We have a scoop done here from the “genius at work”, since he made PoW reversing course and sailing away on the left of Hood sinking place kept on the right on the 2 mentioned photos. This all wrongly captioned photo material has been associated with my DS battle text and a battle map stolen from here in, just a bit modified to hide the wrong doings and “enriched” with all sort of errors you can think about.
If one does not understand naval battle basic concepts, so the difference between range and bearing, cursor and turret blind angle, simply should not try to modify somebody else work.
But again, at the end what you expect from somebody not even able to realize a correct Bismarck side photo between port side and starboard side despite the stern anchor presence on one side only of the warship, from someone mirroring photos too and publish them on the same page one on top of the other, from someone not able to realize until I explained it to him that Bismarck was hit by PoW on the port side sailing south and not on the starboard side sailing north as he was showing since years.
Anyway, … back to us, … I see what you mean by being able of “ really appreciate the undefined nature of the errors”. I can tell you I do, or at least I try to do it, but I try also to be able to appreciate the modifications done intentionally in order to obtain the results desired from it.
I know perfectly now what both Suffolk and Norfolk did, communicated and reported, I know how it looks like on a real precise plot and how they were on reality at sea. So differently than you are thinking, I am able to evaluate both aspects above mentioned clearly enough already today.
But to complete my work and publish it one day, I need to find more official references and evidences compared to what I already have, the evidences that have been hidden ( I do not know if intentionally or not ) for more than 70 years.
You and Marc are right, I need to focus more on facts and evidences and just reduce my personal opinions and way to logically read the findings, … I think I got your last messages and I will try to stay more on this side of it on my shared researches.
I know about the mirage effect, but the British Admiralty evaluated on the Battle Summary Nr 5 a different capability associated with Norfolk given is position during the battle. They underlined the capability on Norfolk to see the fall of shells on Bismarck and Hood so close Norfolk was to both of them.
I know about Marco Santarini's new book on the Denmark Straits, ironically it is printed by the same editor :

I like to take the occasion to underline once again the difference in the author conduct.
I do not know personally Marco Santarini, never talked to him and never exchanged an e-mail with him, it is an absolutely unknown person to me.
But, since Marco seems to be a correct and fair person, he mentioned my article since probably he used it for his works as reference, and correctly recognized and credited the source.
Well, here you have crystal clear the possibility to see the difference between a correct attitude of a person and the shameful conduct of another one.
In order to honor a soldier, we have to tell the truth about what happened over there. The whole, hard, cold truth. And until we do that, we dishonor her and every soldier who died, who gave their life for their country. ( Courage Under Fire )
