As those who watch me or read my stories may recall, my entries of 'The Human Fish' have had problems with whole parts of the chapters coming out italicized when I did not want them to. Although I lack the technical expertise to know for sure, I now suspect the problem is at dA's end. I use notepad on Windows, as everything I type there stays as I intended, though with no hint as to how a submission will come out when posted.

My earlier efforts to eliminate unwanted italics have met with mixed results, but recently I tried editing 'The Human Fish 3'  by substituting ~text~ for <text> when a character speaks using sign language. To my relief it actually worked - all the unwanted italics disappeared, so I anticipate using ~~ instead of <> in the future. I may also revisit my earlier submissions that have had italics issues as well.

You're a 'mine' of information my friend! This would make an interesting "what if?" scenario. what would the result of Jutland been if Beatty had had command of the Fleet?

Beatty has been criticized in some quarters for his conduct at Jutland, particularly during the early battlecruiser action, but I also have read that when he became Grand Fleet commander he became just as cautious as Jellicoe had been. Of course, he can't be faulted for the design flaws (poor cordite handling arrangements?) that cost the British 3 battlecruisers.

I liked his 'sangfroid' comment: "... There seems to be something wrong with our bloody ships today...." the same style was used in WWII in the Pacific when a British carrier was hit by a kamikaze. The American admiral asked when they were likely to be operational again. The British captain replied ".. About Tea time...". The joys of armoured decks?

I have read that our Midway class carriers had their origin when an Illustrious class carrier was damaged by bombing in the Mediterranean and sent to the US for repairs. The US Navy concluded even our Essex class carriers would not have survived the attack, due to their lack of armored flight decks, and began design work on the new ships.
