Henry and Colin came around for another day of Cruel Seas gaming. I wanted to give the Vospers an outing for a change, so we had two groups of 3 MTBs conducting a raid on a German coastal convoy. I took the convoy, which consisted of a merchantman and a tanker, escorted by a Vorpostenboot and a torpedo boat. The Germans also had the possibility of some air cover.

See what happened on the blog https://grahamsgaming.blogspot.com/2019/05/german-convoy-action.html

" ‘Learnt’ or ‘learned’?

These are alternative forms of the past tense and past participle of the verb learn. Both are acceptable, but learned is often used in both British English and American English, while learnt is much more common in British English than in American English.

We learned the news at about three o'clock.
They learnt the train times by heart.

There are a number of other verbs which follow the same pattern in forming the past tense and past participle:

I burned/burnt the toast by mistake.
He dreamed/dreamt about his holiday.
Luke kneeled/knelt down to find his contact lens.
Tanya spoiled/spoilt her dinner.
She spelled/spelt her surname an unusual way.

Leap, lean, spill, and others are also verbs of this type. They are all irregular verbs, and this is a part of their irregularity.

Learned (but not learnt) is also an adjective, pronounced as two syllables (ˈlə:n|əd) rather than the one syllable verb (ləːnt or ləːnd). The adjective, when said of a person, means 'having acquired much knowledge through study'. It can also be used of objects, meaning 'showing, requiring, or characterized by learning; scholarly'.

She is a learned and respected teacher.
I read the report in an extremely learned journal."

Ops!  I cannot tell a lie.  I meant to type "effectiveness"  -  anyway - Phil learned a new word, and Ithorial gave us a useful tutorial.

WHAT !!!

Don't worry, James....... Grin Grin Grin Grin

My first thought, when I saw  'effeteness'.....was that it was 'wrong'..... (Did we have 'effete' torpedoes.....Nah...Surely not !)

When I did a bit of checking it was......"Oh, fair enough, effeteness meant that the torpedoes weren't quite up to the job."

Having looked up a word that I'd never come across....It was a case that, "Stroll on..James...You've taught me something."

You should have kept quiet, my friend.  Grin Grin Grin Good for you for 'owning up'.

Cheers - Phil.  Smiley

 Hey it worked out well Phil. Thanks for the landline chat and the catch up.

 Now what was the name of that Darby winner ?

Not many people know this, but Phil keeps some quality equestrian livestock.  Smiley
