The British General Staff devised a plan to react to possible German intervention in Norway following British mining of Norwegian territorial waters.

Vyacheslav Molotov made a speech to the Supreme Soviet reviewing the foreign situation and the Winter War.  He accused Britain and France of planning to use Finland as a staging ground to attack the USSR.  He also stated that the USSR would remain neutral in the war against Germany.

Game day 211. Great Britain

Alerted to the presence of enemy submarines off the north of Scotland, two warships sailed from Scapa Flow to intercept them.  The attack was supported by three bomber squadrons from the West Midlands.   All four submarines were sunk but the British lost a much-needed warship in the exchange.

The Convoy carrying Indian troops neared Cairo, while three more transports embarked six infantry battalions in Adelaide, Australia.

Two loaded merchant ships off Portugal made their way towards England.
