Watched a programme at late o'clock last night about this "raid" in WW1. 200 killed, just the 8 VCs.. What on earth went through the mind of the man who came up with this idea? "Right, chaps, We're going to sail up to a Hun port, land Marines and Matelots on the Mole and then sink three blockships to stop the dratted U boats getting into the North Sea. We'll pick up the crews by motor launc h and be back in Blighty for tea. Who fancies a go??" Incredible - if this was written as a story today it would be dismissed as Boys Own drivel. Except it happened. Wow.
