Oh, dear! He snuck this one in on me tonight. Well, I'm going to bed & I'll watch it tomorrow night after I get home from work (switching over from 0700-1500 day shift to 1500-2300 arvo shift).

Naval Logistics - Keeping your fleet in fuel, food and guns

“Amateurs study tactics,” goes an old saying, “armchair generals/admirals study strategy, but professionals study logistics [obtaining and moving supplies].”

Re: Drachinifel's Rum Ration - The Loss of HMS Hood - But why did it blow up??

Just got around to watching this night before last. Excellent reasoning & conclusion.

But, then, Drach is (almost?) unwaveringly level-headed when it comes to his subject matter & his propositions are generally well thought out & logical (even if his remarks can be amusingly acerbic).



The comments he comes out with regarding Beatty are hilarious but oh-so accurate! ;D
