Eighty years on. 25th February 1940


The British submarine HMS Narwhal sighted U-63 on the surface.  The U-boat dived, but the destroyers HMS Escapade, HMS Escort, HMS Inglefield and HMS Imogen forced her back to the surface with depth charges. U-63 was scuttled east of Wick, Scotland.

No. 110 Army Co-operation (Auxiliary) Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force arrived in Britain from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Game day 177.  USSR

(To conform to historical incidents) infantry from Leningrad moved southwards towards Turkey.  Six new battalions were raised at Moscow to be sent to garrison Leningrad.

In the north, the soviet infantry heading for the Norwegian border were halted due to concerns about potentially antagonising the Swedes and Norwegians.
