On Friday afternoon, Steve and I had a great game of General Quarters III, playing a fictitious engagement in the North Sea as a Imperial Navy fleet of battle-cruisers, light cruisers and torpedo boats attempts to draw the Royal Navy into a decisive action.

Been in a naval mood lately eh? Another exciting report. I donīt know who would be in deeper doo-doo, the captain of the cruiser that was sunk by the friendly torpedo, or the captain of the destroyer that launched it. Either way, things would not be pleasant!

Cheers Jack, sorry if it is not clear, one of the torpedo boats was sunk by the torpedo from another torpedo boat. The Royal Navy light cruiser was a legitimate target :)

I have tidied the wording up a little.

Not quite as bad then, they were quite expendable :)

S--- happens. I remember a WW II Med game where 2 Italian and one RN cruiser ran aground whilst maneuvering Unwisely.

It's only because it is a game that you even recognize your own goal; Didn't the (Much hyped) Japanese do the same in the Dutch East Indies in 1942?
