TUESDAY 16/03/2010 08:45 (GMT)

THIS DAY IN WW2 (16.3.40)
In Britain... There is a German air raid by 32 bombers (2 are lost) on the British fleet base at Scapa Flow. One cruiser, HMS Norfolk, is slightly damaged. There are 7 naval casualties. The raid is more notable for causing the first civilian casualties in Britain. A German aircraft fleeing the battle released 19 bombs wounding seven civilians and killing James Isbister, aged 27.


In Rome... US envoy and Under-Secretary of State, Sumner Welles, holds talks with Mussolini, Count Ciano, the foreign minister, and King Victor Emmanuel III on the last stop of his mission to discuss conditions for mediation or peace talks in Europe. He receives a cordial but non-committal welcome.

In Argentina... The government deports the German crew of the Admiral Graf Spee into the interior and forbids them to wear their uniforms.

TRIVIA

A flea the size of a man could jump over St.Paul's Cathedral

In 142AD the Romans marched north from Hadrian's wall and occupied southern Scotland. They built a new wall, the Antonine Wall, across Central Scotland which was completed in 154. However in 162 it was abandoned. It was temporarily re-occupied in 208 but abandoned permanently by 210.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION I will focus all my effort and focus on this moment.
