Re: History Quiz #34
I am home again now and able to look at my models, so will opine that the DD is Z-25 and the TB is T-26....
Battle of the Bay of Biscay, 12/28/43. RN light cruisers Glasgow and Enterprise engaged a German DD and TB force that were out to cover an inbound blockade runner. The two CLs sank a German DD and two TBs. Enterprise is (somewhat incorrectly) represented by her near sister Emerald which had two single mounts forward instead of Enterprise's prototype twin turret, I think Glasgow is Southampton...all Neotun models. I am traveling now so have now clue about the individual identities of the German DD and TB.
For this quiz, you'll have to take the models as representatives of their classes. Identify the ships and the occasion of their meeting:
