Thanks Captain Mandrake... yes i did want to talk about the war. Quite a fascinating run up in the middle there. 70-75k Japanese left in Oz!!! Ouch.

As for NY State, they are ruthless on taxes. i just moved from NYC to North Carolina, but still working for a NY company. NY state is coming after me to pay taxes on my income even though i don't live there anymore. Apparently they are the nation's leading authority on this issue and you can't escape it.

Seen from the overview map, your assault does look like a big sword thrust into the heart of LYB country!
Gutsy and brilliant move! You seem to be pulling off what Montgomery failed to do!

Aye. The narrow front approach has been successful in this game. YMMV.

I truly think the Davao ->Palawin axis and projecting force to cut the IJ off from the DEI oil is a much better route than the direct invade the DEI approach. The fact that this is happening in 1943 is devastating in this game. I suspect the IJ's resistance will be futile ..

From the colonial era graveyard at Beaufort Presbyterian Church in Beaufort, S.C.

Someone had bothered to plant the Union Jack to honor the grave of two young officers a long way from their home soil. They were killed in the Battle of Gray's Hill (Beaufort) on Feb 3, 1779. Most likely someone at the church was a loyalist.

And a well educated one too. Note the Irish Cross is missing from it.

The whole graveyard was dotted with CSA flags for Confederate soldiers and Union flags for Union soldiers buried there from the occupation during the Civil War. Honestly, I didnt look to see if the Union flags were historically accurate.

I can imagine in 1779 it might have been a bit divisive to bury English dead on the church grounds when local militiamen had just been killed in the same battle but the apparent reason that English troops were sent to occupy the town was the local loyalist sentiment.

In a lot of places if you planted CSA flags like that there would be wailing and moaning but it is South Carolina. Interesting place.

I genuinely don't understand this, Lord Admiral Sprior. Can you elaborate a bit?

Lifted from wiki:

The current and second Union Flag dates from 1 January 1801 with the Act of Union 1800, which merged the Kingdom of Ireland and the Kingdom of Great Britain to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The new design added a red saltire, the cross of Saint Patrick, for Ireland. This is counterchanged with the saltire of St Andrew, such that the white always follows the red clockwise. The arrangement has introduced a requirement to display the flag "the right way up"; see specifications for flag use, below. As with the red cross, so too the red saltire is separated by a white fimbriation from the blue field.[11] This fimbriation is repeated for symmetry on the white portion of the saltire, which thereby appears wider than the red portion. The fimbriation of the cross of St George separates its red from the red of the saltire.

Outside the Union flag, Saint Patrick's cross has seldom been used to represent Ireland, and with little popular recognition or enthusiasm; it is usually considered to derive from the arms of the powerful FitzGerald family rather than any association with the saint.[30]

The current flag's design, in use since 1801, is blazoned Azure, the Crosses Saltire of St Andrew and St Patrick, quarterly per saltire, counterchanged Argent and Gules, the latter fimbriated of the second, surmounted by the Cross of St George of the third, fimbriated as the saltire.


So, because the flag is pre-union it doesn't have the saltire cross of St Patrick.

I'm sure at least 3 sub commanders, and probably a dozen Nell pilots, are claiming the hit on their combat reports back at base...

Nells / Betties carry the 18 inch type 91 aerial torpedo. Japanese minisubs carry the 45cm type 98 torpedo. "Regular" japanese subs carry the 53cm type 95 torpedo. Of course, there may be some FOW there, who knows?

Lucena et envrions: You know that LYB taffy that was probably *#*&@* Atago? It was *#*@(@(@! Atago. First, Atago moves NW along the southern coast of Luzon, encountering the DD's which ahve been deatched for lack of ammo and are retruning to Cagayan. Jarvis gets a boo boo.

Next, one of the amphibious groups has erroneously been set on "retirement allowed" by a staff flunkie. This they do, heading SE, right into the jaws of #&@*@(!) Atago. Fortunately, Hector puts up a fight and the LYB's are low on ammo.

That was quite an epic run for Atago. The crew deserve a few days of R&R. I'm guessing they will be back.

Lucena: The airfield is level one with adequate supply and good ground support. Even so, the Corsairs need oil changes, air filter changes, new plugs, coolant changes, ash tray replacements........ We bring in some fresher P-40K's. They aren't the same thing.

Then some snazzy new Zeroes. How come the LYB fighter sweeps always go in BEFORE the bombers? Just asking.
