Eighty years on. 18th November 1939


Martial Law was proclaimed in German-occupied Prague, Czechoslovakia.

In the North Sea the Dutch liner “Simon Bolivar” with about 400 people on board sank after striking a German mine.  About 85 people drowned.  Most of the survivors were landed in Britain.

Game day 79. Germany

The U-Boat Flotilla moved south-east off the coast of Canada, hoping to intercept British shipping.  The 2st Battleship Flotilla sailed south-west on a parallel course to the British convoys, without knowing where the enemy was.  In the South Atlantic the 2nd Flotilla sailed due north towards the coast of West Africa.
