Ah, yes. Fenton's wolf genes switch on and he tries to disembowel the Queen's deer. He becomes an instant celebrity.

No kidding. The poor fellows are stuck in some mosquito-infested basha flying missions over Myitkinia while you luxuriate at Kandy House and replace secretaries just because of "ankle sag"

************************March 15, 1943(c)*********************

Doesn't it seem like we did March 15 already? Oh well.

Cagayan et. environs: JJ surface force proves to be Oyodo and DD's. Oyodo and Oakland (on the way to San Jose) miss each other. Instead, Oyodo finds the westernmost picket HMIS Punjab.

Japanese Ships
CL Oyodo

Punappan D. crosses the T of the IJN...and then a 6 inch shell knocks off his beautiful turban. It's all down hill from there.




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The Hood (2/10/2013 3:30:39 PM)

Oyodo steams SE for Cagayan but now runs into Juneau coming East from Jolo. A beautifully symmetrical fight although Juneau happens to be a "machine gun" cruiser. We are getting better at night fights. We win.

Oyodo turns around, having not reached Cagayan. She encounters some empty LCT's which have disembarked a SeaBee Bn. We lose, but the damage is small.

Oyodo and Kiyonami likely mortally wounded. Minazuki badly hurt. 2 other IJN DD's burning.

We lose two minesweepers and some LCT's. [:)]

That Siri Tzu app is crap.

**************************Situation Burma***************************

There is a Jap division North of Ramree, forget which one. It will take a while for them to reach the landing site. They will be at risk of getting cut off.

My dearest Spri;

How is Vicky working out? Hope you got rid of that ankle sag problem. Moana just brought up a good point about the Ramree thing. Why don't we send in some aviation support to Akyab so we can LRCAP over the landing beaches with P-38's and P-40K's? Also this, does JJ have anything at Prome? If not we might be able to take it by paradrop to ease a crossing of the Irrawaddy. I will lay off any P-38 or P-40K replacements so you can fill up the squadrons.

With unconvincing sincerity;

Fleet Admiral Mandrake




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The IKEA effect (2/10/2013 7:17:23 PM)

Just looked. We have 38 P-40K's and 4 P-38G's. There are 6 B-17F's if you want to convert a B-25 sqdrn. I will backconvert a B-24D squadron to 25's so you can fill out Tenth Air Force heavies.

RAF fighters are virtually tapped out but you have a couple of Liberator II's.

Shipment of Parchesi boards and nudie posters on the way.

I took the liberty of having Frobisher and her DD wait for Victorioius near DG.

Pennslyvania is headed for Colombo. Feel free to use her when patched up. Resolution leaving Pearl in about 2 days when a DD gets there.

Sorry about Punjab. Not sure how she ended up in the Phillipines. Not sure what Thracian is doing in the PI either. I'll send her along.

Royal Navy term for a true Story dit (nothing made up)
If the story is sworn true then one might add "12 clips" at the end.

It might help for readership loyalty.

Maybe you could work Uncle Oscar into the Ramree landings somehow?




Cap Mandrake -> RE: The Hood (2/12/2013 3:50:00 PM)

According to NBC News, Uncle Oscar is not on the short list. We need more to call or email the Vatican.

He's spouted on about it in the past in a rather pointed dictum. I think it's important to him.

Man...rook at all this stuff moving to Beazelbob. Three full regiments. This intel is 2 weeks old but it doesn't look like they arrived yet.

I wonder if I could send Wasp out there and.......?
