Eighty years on. 28th January 1940

Finnish troops eliminated Soviet forces encircled in the Pieni-Kelivaara pocket on the north shore of Lake Ladoga.

Chinese troops captured Lucheng, Shanxi Province. (Shan-si on the contemporary map)

Game day 150. Great Britain

First an apology that the game day counting has been 10 days adrift since 31st December.  This is indeed game day 150.

The escorted empty convoy continued south-west towards the US east coast.  (This was reported yesterday under the German turn.)

The battleship in the bay of Biscay began its return towards Gibraltar.

In the North East Atlantic the warship withdrew to Portsmouth.  Trying to take on four submarines alone was not a good proposition.  But they called on the RAF who made a bombing raid on the submarines.  Two submarines were sunk.  The bombers returned to south-west England.

The convoy in the Red Sea sailed east into the Indian Ocean.
