Eighty years on. 27th January 1943


The Finnish army prepared for an expected renewed attack by the Russians.

In the South African parliament former Prime Minister Hertzog’s peace resolution was defeated, 81 to 59.  The division was clearly between staunch Boers and anglophiles.

The German government demanded at least 1 million industrial and rural workers be provided from Nazi-occupied Poland to work assignments in the Reich.

The writ was issued for a new Canadian federal election to be held on 26th March 1940

Game day 139. Germany

In the North Atlantic the U-Boat group, sailing south, came upon a merchant ship escorted by two warships.  They torpedoed and sank the merchantman and one of the warships.  The remaining warship sank a submarine.  The entire convoy of supplies from the USA had been sent to the bottom of the Atlantic.

Further south in the Bay of Biscay the engagement between two warships continued.  The defending British ship sank the German attacker.

The escorted empty convoy continued south-west towards the US east coast.

The other German task force left Angola and headed back into the South Atlantic.
