I'll withhold my voting, I am ignorant when it comes to ships. I have no idea about them apart that they float and when I'm aboard I want to get back on dry land with a full stomach.
Landlubber, if I am correct is what you would call me.
Thanks british exil - hear what you are saying and I will interpret that as a vote for HMS KGV nes't pas?
Yes. Mat clearly indicated that he knows nothing about ships. Therefore, his vote for superlative KGV aesthetics makes sense.
Not necessarily so CB. I know absolutely nothing about women....but I know what I like (if you know what I mean)....... Ergo and theretofore, I do not believe one has to know about ships to appreciate their lines and curves - and of course their almighty weapons .
I believe, and if you analyse in more detail, understand, what British Exil said in his earlier post was:
I felt initially that I should withhold my vote as I am ignorant when it comes to ships. That said, I feel it would be wrong of me not to use my right to vote, and on reflection, will use the aforementioned in support of King George V.
Is that what he said. My english to American translation book must be out of date or something.
Don't worry fodder old chap, you'll get the hang of it. I suspect you have similar problems with US-Swedish. Did you read what Orm said for Group 1 as Bismarck?...thought so, Orm was of course saying KGV
Anyways, enough of that. Here are the scores on the doors Isla
Bismarck (2) Orm, fodder
HMS King George V (2) warspite1, redcoat
Vittorio Veneto (1) Chickenboy
USS Iowa (4) warspite1, Orm, parusski, Chickenboy
Yamato (1) fodder
Richelieu (1) redcoat
England expects that every man will do his duty.
