IâÂ´m on the Atlantic trade now, itâÂ´s october 1940. It took a week before I spotted a C2-freighter. Rough weather made her hard to hit...took me fore eels to sink her.....well now...IâÂ´ll been thinking a lot during this week:
Why in the h*ll canâÂ´t the watches reveal themselves....didnâÂ´t Kriegsmarine have any watchschedules like everybody else? 4-8, 6-6 or whatever....
Right in the middle of an attack, the f***g engineroom crew, suddenly STOPS the engines because "oh captain...sob,sob..we are too few...sob (too few? itâÂ´s a laugh...never seen so many downstairs before ) and there is some bloke standing in the diesel-room, doing nothing while the pansies in the electro-room are closing down....bah...this should be a matter for the chief-engineer
I can understand, thatâÂ´s impossible to use the deckgun in hard weather, but what about the flakgun? It should be useable even in rather bad weather.
If the watchcrew is able to be there, a flakgunner could do it aswell.
The flakgun is very handy for taking out the most anoying MTB:s
Speaking about MTB:s.....Something creepy happend the other night...Very dark night....at least gale 8....heavy sea......a BURNING MTB suddenly emerged....high speed....bouncing from wave to wave....shooting at us with his machineguns.....circling us for hours like a torch in the night ( I dived, because I couldnâÂ´t use my flakgun) I watched him in the periscope....what is this, a ghostship
