I wish to make the following correction to my article ”A SOUTH ATLANTIC INCIDENT” published in the September, 1990 edition of the Naval Historical Review.
An ex Communicator might be forgiven for being a mere layman when it comes to describing anti-submarine warfare.
In the radio room, I assumed the ship to be almost stationary, when in fact, it was underway in a creeping attack, before gathering speed to drop charges. Steam turbines are quiet at slow speeds!
I trust Vice-Admiral Sir James Willis, Rtd. and Rear Admiral Sir Brian Murray, Rtd. our Signal Officer who served in Nepal at that time, will also forgive this mistake.
