Um....no I don't agree. The letter is clear without ambiguity: it relates to "emphatically".Antonio Bonomi wrote: ↑Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:58 pm...
Now we have found also a letter of September 15th, 1941 were Adm Tovey talked with Adm Pound about Wake-Walker need to " set a guard on his tongue ".
I think we agree that it is not regarding being generally speaking emphatic or sarcastic, ... but just being " very superficial " ( to say the least ) on his declarations, … just like Adm Tovey declaring the Bismarck being unsinkable to the RN battleship guns, ... for example.
Would you agree that we can only refer to the BBC interview and to the Hood First board " superficial " declarations on this regard ?
Do you have other evidence of RearAdm Wake-Walker speech performances where he needed to " set a guard to his tongue " released between May and September 1941 ?

Last but not least, ... the so called " Silver Bullet " will be released with my future book about the Bismarck.
Like it or not I will never disclose it before.
It is clear to me that no matter what document we will find and whatever it will state, ... the " hooligan/deniers " on this forum will never accept what has been already largely demonstrated referencing the document list above.
If someone does not find conclusive for the threat demonstration the May 31st, 1941 letter from Tovey to Pound, ... it is his problem.
If someone does not realize what Adm Tovey explained to Stephen Roskill later about that real threat occurred on full details, ... I do not know what else he thinks is needed to prove this event.
Hope you are not even thinking to try declare Adm Tovey being unreliable or suffering for memory failures when he was writing and visiting Stephen Roskill.
Am I right assuming this ?
The way I read the sources presented so far, they are not really in favour for you. In regard of Tovey I already made my statement:
