Ever since the Shiny Sheff was lost taking 20 matelots with her,there has always been controversial buzzes, i.e. Scot was transmitting, so the EW was blanked out, PWO was in the w/room and not at his def watch. There has always been this need by the media as in any tradegy to apportion blame. The PWO concerned held his hands up, lives lost must weigh heavily on his mind every day. Yet it was war, mistakes happened, this being the first and only naval war since '45 how can any one person be culpable. And all this time the guys' views that count, i.e. sheff's crew have got on quietly without spilling anything to the rapacious media. Unlike today eh! Just watched ITN's coverage of this anniversary , and was disappointed by such a small segment that would have left the uneducated thinking that yet again the navy facked up. Im sure our thoughts are with the guys who made it off the shiny sheff and with the families and friends of those who didnt. I believe it certainly deserves more than 5 mins sandwhiched between some bent vicar and Alan Balls funeral.
