Thread Name: Royal Oak/Turkish Man of War/Cpt Mansfield's Fight
Subject: RE: Origins: Turkish man of war
Are the dates of 23rd or 24th of February of any significance at all, or did they just appear out of thin air? I notice that Admiral Kempthorne's action was in December. Is there a forgotten battle out there somewhere?
