Now that my wartime job is done I've decided to enter politics. I'll be challenging Adolf to a winner-take-all cagematch for the position of head of state. Once I win (pretty much a foregone conclusion) we'll be getting rid of all this unpleasant Nazi business, giving everybody back their countries (well, except England, nothing to be done there I suppose, we'll just give the survivors an all expenses paid trip to Canada or Australia or wherever) and making a few major changes regarding how some of the folks here at home are being treated.

After that I'm not sure what my longterm plans are although I'm definitely putting Göring on a very strict diet because I've already checked with the head of the Reich Chancellery custodial staff and they don't make janitor's uniforms that big.

11.4.40 was a bad day for the British navy and a convoy off at AN84 and AN78.


Karl Myer, in his new Mark VII U-102, was ordered to patrol AN81, but seeing a convoy heading near him, he decided to intercept.


He comes across the convoy off of Lowesloft, and a black Swan class (HMS Pelican) is between him and the convoy. The Convoy appears to be seven merchants in two lines and two escorts, and the water is shallow. U-102 tries to make a end around, but the Black Swan starts to head right to U-102, So Myers calmly turns the boat head on to the HMS Pelican, and seeing that it is not turning, he opens doors 1 and 2 and fires two Electric eels down its throat.

BOOM....BOOM.... and soon the Pelican is sinking, and U-102 sees the other escort heading towards the area, bone in mouth and swerving. trying to make some distance so he can make a pass at night, the Black Swan Class
HMS Redpole however is on the case too fast, and U-102 hits the ground trying to be quiet, but gets shaken around badly, knowing that it too shallow to wait it out, U-102 decides its time to fight the escort to the death. headed to scope depth, Myer finds the Redpole is Broadside, 600 meters away from the rear tube, quickly clicking the steam torpedo for Fast, and opens and fires.

BOOM!!!...and the Redpole is slipping stern first into the water. The crew cheers go silent when the hydrophone operator reports another warship closing in fast. Looking though the scope yet another Black Swan class is charging down the pipe. The HMS Black Swan doesn't know what happened except that two of its fellow escorts are sunk, and some where there is a U-boat causing mayhem.

Myer Fires no 3 torpedo at 1000 meters, but the electric eel misses, No 4 tube is empties at 750 meters, and is also a miss, the Black Swan does not know where U-102 is, but Myers knows that if he is found, he might be dead. so at 600 yards Tube one, which had been reloaded, is fired, and the clock says it missed, but then there is a massive explosion and secondary fireworks. Three Black Swans lay slain, and Seven Juicy merchants are Unescorted

Less then two hours later, seven merchants are sunk, U-102 is out of Eels and has three more shells, and quickly leaves before air cover arrives! The only issue was one of the freighters lowered Anti-aircraft guns at close range and raked my gun and flak crews.

Off the coast of Egypt, I've sunk a couple of single merchants (one of them with escorts).
I've been busy also with the metox, not always working as it should.
