Another conversation I had with a friend, is if your going to war (World War 2 period) and only could pick a single assignment out of the three choices given, which would it be? Why?
A) You are stationed on a cramped submarine in freezing and deep Atlantic waters. B) You are stationed on a long-range bomber as a tail-gunner in an area with a lot of air combat and anti-aircraft guns. C) You are stationed on the front-lines in a trench with several enemy regiments and artillery across from you.
Having been in a submarine lurking in the freezing north sea for weeks on end - though a little after the war but in the last surviving wartime submarine! I would pick tail gunner as a more entertaining way to die. Boredom is the worst in the cold and wet - the trenches as cannon fodder never did appeal to me.
I don't know much about the US navy - I was in the Royal Navy - and for the record the sub was HMS Tiptoe a stretched A class boat. I was on an anti-submarine frigate before that, HMS Wakeful, and I also served on a few other subs after.
I should tell you that I resent your ignorant personal attacks.
Thanks for following me - but your (again) misinformed fan mail suggests that you are just another troll from the Sab Oh stable - As he chose to troll me and call me a liar etc from my first posts here as a newbie he gets what he deserves in return. He, and you can always stop trolling me and then I won't have to retaliate.
My response was in clearly a reply to the OP - nothing in my post made you look small - you did that all by yourself. Also I was specific enough to answer the OP, why you should immediately attack me is unclear, maybe you have a troll's not so hidden agenda?
I clearly know what I am talking about, when I do not I make a point of stating that it is what I think. At that time HMS Tiptoe was the last surviving submarine in service from any nation as far as I am aware.
Nobody disrespected you, again you did that all by yourself.
C) You are stationed on the front-lines in a trench with several enemy regiments and artillery across from you.
I do not want to know where it came from when I take one and die for my country, and all those who hate everything about our country, but want people like me to die for them so they can b_tch more about our country and our President.
