The Allies On The Sea
Editor Maui News:
I read with some interest your arti
cle of October 19 on the above sub
ject which was interesting reading,
even if one did not see with you, rye
to eye. Just what the Allies should
have done regarding the German fleet
and bases In the beginning of the war,
we all know that there were several
things that should have been done at
that time that were not done. How
ever, when I read your article further
and noted your question: "Where
are Ihe great British fleets and Ilritish
mastery of (he seas"? it rather sur
We all know that the great fleet Is
not infallible, and it did not dig the
Huns out of Kiel like rats out of a
hole, as one "Hotair" Churchill once
suggested. Still, if we will but think
once it is easy enough to see that the
British fleet has accomplished much,
and is still "master of the seas" and
is likely to be so for sometime yet.
In the beginning of the war that
British fleet "bottled up" the fleet
of the Huns and has kept it bottled.
Certainly they ventured out once in
the North Sea, but were soon sent
back yelping to their kennel, from
whence they have not shown their
noses since. Had It not been for the
British fleet, Germany would, no doubt
earlier in the war, have picked a
quarrel with America, blown her, then,
med icre fleet out of the sea and
would have domineered the States and
Canada today. The British fleet has
not only been fighting the battles of
England but those of America, the
other Allies and neutrals. For over
three years she has patrolled the
North Sea, day and night; she has
uarded her long line of coast; cov-
veyed all shipping in and out of her
ports; guarded the merchantmen and
transports to and from France; patrol
led the ocean to the Mediterranean;
watched British and other interests
in Suez, South Africa, India, Australia,
New Zealand, and from Canada to
Ciipe Horn, in the Pacific and Atlantic;
and constantly fighting the submarine
at. home and abroad, etc.
Yet, that fleet has not come up to
what "was reasonably expected of it."
Well, then, I don't know, perhaps,
what may be considered a reasonable
Also, why is it the British fleet that
is expected to do everything? No
doubt you would have liked to have
seen a scrap. So would I, still I think
that the very fact that the Huns lie
skulking under cover is sufficient to
show that the much-abused British
navy Is still master of the seas hence
a protection to civilization.
Today, America boasts of a grand
fleet, and from all accounts the last
three years of construction and equip
ment now stand .about the second
finest in the world, or certainly very
close to it. So being, now would be
I hat fleet's chance to do a bit of "dig
ging" in the Kiel canal, blow Huns
out of the Baltic and make a name
for itself. As you say, the indenti
cal program of razing German ship
building works and putting the Kiel
canal out of business will have to be
carried out. Then, why not?
