Just read the post about the Jackspeak book. Can anyone recommend any good RN videos or books or anything? Just out of interest.
To put it in perspective, the loss of life from the sinking of one battleship (an example taken from the book) equates, in terms of numbers, to 20 times the number of British fatalities in Iraq in the entire Iraq war. (~2,600 crew vs. 134 in Iraq.) Imagine suddenly losing several battleships in 1 day, as did happen, the death toll makes for very sobering reading. :neutral:calvin1975 said:dunkers!!! your right, got a hold of that book from the imperial war museum in manchester, fukn scary, harrowing nightmare stuff!!
