Re: Did any of Hoods Survivors ever meet Bismarck Survivors?

I am wondering if any of the Hoods 3 survivors ever met any of the Bismarcks survivors in person. What were their feelings towards each other? Did Ted Briggs ever meet and speak to Rechberg? I am sure they knew who each other were. A quick check of the interweb suggests that there has been a long (...

Re: Newcomer Seeking Answers

I am back with my files now, and beginning the catch-up process. So far as the simultaneous loss of two turrets is concerned, I don't think there is enough real evidence around to come to any definitive conclusion. There are a few anecdotal reports that describe a flash of flame etc. in the vicinit...
