28 March 1940:
Scharnhorst departs Wilhelmshaven on another raiding mission.

Results:
Returned to port 2 April 1940, having sunk 24 ships for an impressive 101,528 tons. We tried twice to intercept a task force in the hopes of sinking a battleship or carrier, but no luck. However we did manage to chase down and obliterate a convoy just W of Scapa Flow. Departed the area after damage in attack by Swordfish, of which we shot down one.

On a side note, my gunners and flak gunners are very popular with the ladies ashore, what with all the medals they have. But it's tit-for-tat aboard Scharnhorst...you sink a lot of ships or shoot down a lot of aircraft, your CO hands out medals like they're candy.:D

"Did you guys hear about Herr Heinz Schmidt? On the way to the straits of Gibraltar he encountered a convoy sinking the HMS Glasgow, and proceeded to the straits. He then made the bold decision of entering the Gibraltar harbor, and he sunk the Battleship HMS Nelson! I heard he is going to be awarded the Knight's Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords when he arrives back in Lorient. Hopefully he will make the return journey across the straits!"

Gazpode - R Hessler
 
Following a hiatus, I recently had the chance to grab some hours of gameplay on SH3. However, it became plainly obvious that I had either become rusty, or had lost my luck! I present the following citation:-

2nd Flt, Lorient Base - Nov1st, 1941
From: C.i.C - Lorient docks
To: A Doenitz, TWIMC

Sirs
We wish to report the now obvious loss of our vessel, U-111 from 2Flt. This boat was commanded by R Hessler, a well respected and experienced commander. The boat had left for her eighth patrol some three week's ago. Her last contact was made on Oct 9th, 1941 - reporting some eight vessel's sunk for and est 31,000GRT of enemy shipping, and had five serviceable torpedoes remaining plus half a tank of fuel.

Orders were issued for the commander to continue with his patrol, with the hope he would find some more enemy ships to sink with the five remaining torpedoes.

We've now been fed evidence to suggest that upon engaging a large convoy, U-111 was detected, depth charged and sunk by enemy escorts protecting the convoy, in a position some 200km SW of Holyhead.

Lorient is tonight mourning the loss of a great commander who in his 8 patrols, sent more than 171,000GRT of enemy shipping to the bottom and was promoted twice, as well as being rewarded with the Iron Cross.

A sad end to a very distinguished career which ironically was due to take a different direction upon his return to Lorient with Hessler being eyed as the new head of our Training academy.

ENDS;-


This was my greatest commander of all time since I began playing SH3 and I just hope that once I get back into SH3 more regularly, I can emulate the great feat's I achieved with this commander.

"Herr Heinz Schmidt, after arriving back at port, and receiving the Knights cross with golden oak leaves, swords, and diamonds was ordered to relinquish command of U-65, and Heinz's best friend and watch officer Wolfgang Eisenholtz was promoted to the Commander of U-65. Because of the impression Heinz Schmidt made on der Fuhrer, Heinz Schmidt was assigned the command of the newly formed 23rd flotilla based in Salamis, Greece."

"We will all miss our former Commander and my best friend Heinz Schmidt, but lets keep the spirit of him on U-65, and make him proud!"

Oberleutnant z. S. Wolfgang Eisenholtz
