But he died in 1939? Also you’d think something as ‘normal’ as influenza would be mentioned somewhere in the obit or his wiki article.It may have been influenza combined with over working himself
They won half++ of Jutland at night, this time around. The combo of signals and command training (and making lots of signals to tell your friends what is going on) with command training for reaction to events in poor visibility or other circumstances is what enabled them to give the HSF such a pounding in the dark - even as they took some lumps in return. So if anything they are more aware of the need, and are already more on top of it than OTL.You know one of the bigger problems the RN doing well so at Jutland might cause is that they might not be spending nearly as much effort on being prepared for night battle in the interwar period which will bite them in the ass come WWII.
I think even in the RN (which had a habit of overworking its best officers Collingwood .. and some not so good Pound )If Western Approaches Command (RN WW2) had an equal medical staff assessing officers and ratings manning escorts would Captain Frederic John Walker have worked himself to death in July 1944?
