Out of the Trenches is our community format where your questions are being answered. Praise, criticism or a simple question about World War 1 – Indy will take some time to give you answers. The more questions you ask, the more episodes we can produce. Don't hesitate!
I've got a question you can have some advance time to research, as it takes (took) place on 23 April 1918, or roughly two months from now in TGW time. BTW, don't bother trying to pronounce my name. Even Indy, being a resident of Sweden, will likely butcher it; he's handicapped by first being an American. ========== Indy and Crew: I was recently reminded of the Zeebrugge Raid. FFI, see URL: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeebrugge_Raid and URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUS9G-c9OIc I've heard references to how the Intrepid and Iphigenia were sunk in the wrong place, but I have NOT seen any reference to where the correct location should have been and/or why the ships commanders did not sink the ships at said correct location(s). Please elaborate. Keep up the good work, LP Long time watcher, first time poster -- ========== Note: I deal better with either SMS or E-mail messages, and have arranged for my cell phone carrier to turn OFF my VoiceMail. ========== I'm looking out for the classes of 2025 & 2028... My favorite "West Wing" quote (Ep. 1-18): Sam Seaborn: "Mallory, education is the silver bullet. Education is everything. We don't need little changes, we need gigantic, monumental changes. Schools should be palaces. The competition for the best teachers should be fierce. They should be making six-figure salaries. Schools should be incredibly expensive for government and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense. That's my position. I just haven't figured out how to do it yet." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hG-V3k_Xl2s ==========Posted 2 weeks ago by Anonymous.
Guten Tag Indy and Crew. In WW1 media particularly British media, every time the whistle is blown to go over the top, the immediate response, is enemy shelling in no-mans land. How accurate is this to battled on the western front. It seems to me as though it would take longer than a few seconds to have the enemy strike back with precise artillery fire.Posted 1 month ago by Ian Stanford.
