Re: Kaiserliche Marine sailors quarters

Marcelo, I too have believed the KLM crews especially for battleships, batttlecruisers & larger cruisers stayed in barracks when in a home port with rotated detachments being on board.

Re: W. Hadeler: Kriegschiffsbau

Happy for you on your purchase! There are so many books in German that I wish we're translated to English. Even some WWII books about the German armed forces in French I would very much like to have. Sadly, I'm afraid my two semesters of German would not be enough to do it.

Re: New Moderator

Bill, I want to state publicly what I have said privately that you have my total support as moderator and that you have shown tremendous restraint in dealing with the constant attacks.

Re: Channel Dash

If the same conditions existed other than Bismarck, I believe the outcome would have been the same! Would have been even a bigger coup when all four ships made it back!
