Also, the US considered using chemical weapons against the Japanese on various uninhabited islands, but decided against it because of the bad press that might have resulted. It's likely all sides involved "considered" using chem or bio weapons at various points. Italians used it (gas) as well, tho ...

Apparently you misunderstood what I meant. By modern politics in Mean the remarks about Iraq and Bush. This' a WW2 board. The rest of it was fine.

That sounds inherently unlikely. Do you have any details? Hey there Sid. I will look in the file cabinet later tonight and try and track down the bits. The "assets" were not large. IIRC they were mostly a handful of floatplanes. But I will try and find the specifics for you later. My Regards... Doc

While it was determined by command that the USS John Harvey carried the mustard bombs the story was kept secret until 1971 when the historian G...

Any ideas on what happened to her after she was towed to Pola? Scrapped after the war? Scuttled at the end?

Enrico - Are you suggesting that the Axis forces did not fib on such things to their citizens during the war? I hope not.

As to the HMS Rodney, I will have to check the manifests so see if there was a CPO Miller onbaord. I've not read the book in question, so I will give her a look sometime.
