| Solo2863 chapter 5 . 11/18/2013
Good story with the tension of a U-boat hunt in mid Atlantic with the CO's wife getting glimpses of what is going on by signal. That reminds me of Captain and Mrs Sherbrooke during the Battle of the Barents Sea.
There are a few pieces of nautical procedure that strike true but they don't spoil the story.
I'll PM you separately about the gun mount nomenclature.

I really enjoyed this story, especially the way you don't spell out what John and Nancy are feeling, just focusing on their thoughts and actions. I find it very in keeping with the style of the books and think it increases the emotional impact of events. I also liked the technical information - heavy going at times but the reward is worth the effort, just like in the books. Is this story finished? If so, ouch, what a cliffhanger!

As always, gripping. Another technical question: why is the first lieutenant the 'Jimmy' ?
| constantlearner chapter 5 . 5/17/2013
Brilliant - from cliff-hanger to nail-biter - or do I mean the other way round? Excellent which ever way.
| Jacynthe Bleue chapter 4 . 5/1/2013
Terrifyingly well written and brutally concise. No waste words. Not one. The successive signals, especially are eloquent and effective. One question, though. Was it really the practice to include the sender's initials?

| Strange Brew chapter 4 . 3/4/2013
I enjoyed this. Very technical, very wartime, very good! I especially liked the last paragraph, with the tea splashing on stockings and tears in the rain...
| constantlearner chapter 4 . 2/3/2013
A real nail-biter and more than a bit of a cliff-hanger. Excellent. Thank-you.

Well that was an excellent treat to wake up to!
| Fergus Mason chapter 2 . 11/26/2012
constantlearner, "sinking feeling" may turn out to be an unfortunate choice of words :-)

Yes, SimonC, it's THAT Bennett!
| Simon C chapter 1 . 11/24/2012
Nice descriptive piece - thanks for posting.
| constantlearner chapter 2 . 11/26/2012
Very enjoyable in a "sinking feeling of dread in the stomach" sort of way. I'm looking forward to the next chapter (and hoping it may be next chapterS).
| constantlearner chapter 1 . 11/24/2012
Excellent. A lot of information very, very concisely without slowing the pace. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
