POCKET BATTLESHIP

The skipper of the heavy cruiser Sch? has nothing to report but successful and brillant action wherever the Allied enemy was encountered- or eluded. The surface raider smashed at convoy and straggler alike, to the total damage of 150,000 tons. Whether off the Cape Verde isles or in the Indian Ocean, the Sch? sank or made captive whatever vessels hove within view. She returned to port unscathed, and the morale of her crew was higher than ever. In this proud recital, the facts are neat and gleaming as a captain's cabin, and everything of note or interest is here. But for some reason the eventual destruction of the Schee by Allied airpower is confined to a bare colorless paragraph at the very end!
