Hi guys. I ahve a small query that I am hoping you can answer for me.

Basically in the manual it says that you can radio Bdu for new orders and to request an escort when approching base. Now I presume that this escort is only available later in the game, but in late '44 I still havn't come across it.

This now begs the question to me, are these 2 messages available at all in the game? If so, when are they available or how. If you need to sit in the radio operators seat and do it manually now the heck do you do it?

I desperatly need an escort! I am being shadowed by 2 RN ships and heading for Cherborg, heavily damaged. Being submerged they are following a fuel leak, but if I surface I am sunk. I really need an escort. I can surface at night, get off the message and dive again, but only if it is available.

Thanks, David.

I had the same situation a while ago.

Try to sneak away. Silent running and change your course often. They wont hunt you forever.

There's no such orders listed in the manual.

Maybe you have an updated version of the manual.
