|The RN ships as seen from the air. The lead destroyer is just turning to the north.|
The game commenced with the appearance of the Royal Navy as Scharnhorst and Z31 weighed anchor. As the Germans reached the mouth of the fjord Z31 began to lay smoke.
The playing area was about 40 feet across - plenty of 'sea room'.
Initial salvos from the Scharnhorst fell somewhat short...
...but soon Kapitan von Powell got the hang of it!
The RN destroyers were also making smoke (some of it voluntarily) while frantically manoeuvring to avoid German shells. Here the centre DD has placed a firing arrow setting the initial range at 34 inches. More action in the final post coming soon!
