As Chief of Staff I agree that the Chief of the Air force plans are correct in the fact that we must first protect our own island before turning our eyes on the high seas while at the same time it is my understanding that if you own the seas then our troops shall have free reign in the seven seas. I think we should first create a defensive air force and build up a royal navel that we would be proud of.

Currently Italy is in the Africa is invading the small countries. This should put the United Kingdom on guard we are now seeing an increasing threat in this new Fascist government.

Sir Asimov, what sectors of aircraft research do you propose sending Supermarine Aviation Corp. onto?
Mr. Prime Minister, the contract of Basic Interceptor Development should be awarded to Supermarine as they are the best in the business and we need modern fighter planes urgently. Once the new plane, codenamed "Hurricane Mk. II" is developed, we can then start the expansion of RAF Fighter Command.

However, I recommand a small investment of resource into the upgrading of Fighter Wings now as we already have the Hurricane Mk.I on hand. The Gladiators in services in the FWs are hopelessly outdated and there are hints that continental forces are equipping their air forces with monoplanes. Since the RAF would not be enlarged soon, the most efficient way to protect our airspace would be to equip our existing FWs with the best fighter available. The resources needed would be limited and the reequipment would completed in time along with the Radar Stations, fascilitating the formation of a rudimentary national air defence system.

Admiral of the fleets and Secretary of State for the Admiralty;

What of the threat posed by the Italian Navy? We cannot fight on every sea and ocean, let that be clear, we must use air assets to destroy the Italian Navy if war every breaks out.

Sould I mention to the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary that the best diplomatic representations be made to the Italian government. Maybe even direct Italy's trust to us rather than Herr Hitler.

Can I have command of the forces in Sub-Saharan Africa? That'd be the forces in the Sudan and Mombasa, I think.

If I am accepted to that position, I will push for intervention on the side of Ethiopia in this second Italo-Abyssinian War. If we can pull it off without angering the Germans, we can knock out a potential enemy in Fascist Italy for a relatively small investment. Italian forces in Africa are comparitively weak, and if we deny them access to the Suez they will be paralyzed.

Of course, such actions are a highly unlikely course to take, but I will push for it none the less.

Admiral of the fleets and Secretary of State for the Admiralty;

I would advise against getting involved at this stage of the affairs, the Royal Navy is not yet organised enough or prepared to be involved in such a foolish escapade. If we are to become involved, we need more squadrons of Naval Bombers and for the Royal Navy to be ready for war within 3 months, somthing that cannot be done, for the Itlaina fleet is strong, even if it is Italian.

I concur with my colleague, the RAF has been neglected in the previous years and the force had been deteriorated in into very sorry state, I do not dare to reinforce the Middle East Air Command at the expense of the Home Isles. At least two years are needed to rise the RAF back to an acceptable strength.

Admiral of the fleets and Secretary of State for the Admiralty;

If you can provide offensive fighter cover for the Home Isles, then some battleships and Battle Cruiser can be transfered to the Med or Pacific. The naval bombers would be cut to shreds if if they did not have adequate fighter support in the Home Isles, though they could operate effectivly in the Med without fighter support.

Secretary of State for Armaments:

It is my opninon that once the infantry are done we begin building our most advanced Interceptors for the defence of the home isles. I believe this should be our number one air priotiorty before naval bombers!

Also I'll have to concur that our armed forces are not adqueate to fighting Italy espically if Germany joined or supported her.

Marshal of the RAF and Secretary of State for the Air Ministry:

Such ambitious plan would have to wait till at least mid 1937, after the completion of the phase I Radar Stations and formation of a new Interceptor Group. However, the odds are still overwhelming, as the range of fighter cover is limited.

OOC: I have been toying with the idea of playing this AAR in co-operative multiplayer, and it's a good idea, but it should be done during the war only. Everyone needs to chime in on whether or not they like this idea.

The Right Honourable Lord Stanley Baldwin:

Asimov said:
Mr. Prime Minister, the contract of Basic Interceptor Development should be awarded to Supermarine as they are the best in the business and we need modern fighter planes urgently. Once the new plane, codenamed "Hurricane Mk. II" is developed, we can then start the expansion of RAF Fighter Command.
It has been done, and the Supermarine designers tell me that they have high hopes for this design.

Sir Chatfield, now that I see your point on the Fleet Air Arm, They will be given a higher priority, and Avro has begun prototype research on new designs for Naval bombers. They expect that the design will begin production early next year. How many squadrons do you think is adaquate to take on the Reggio Marina? Also, I shall inquire upon the worthiness of influencing Il Duce. I would also think that Bomber Command could be used for better things, as they aren't trained to bomb shipping, and their planes aren't designed with that in mind. I agree with Sir Boyd that offensive fighter cover is a long time away, maybe we could begin such things in 1938, after building up more interceptors in the isles.

Mr. Chamberlain, what industry expansion programme would you have us do. (OOC: there are 15 free IC's left for production, and it would be nice to have some expansion in india). Also, I agree on your statement on our air priorities. Note that I think that the Spitfire would be an adaquate design for escorting our Naval Bombers in the home isles.

Sir Boyd, since we are a little short on liquid wealth now, and supermarine is very expensive to fund, I have decided to put Hawker onto the Hurricane Mk.II project.

Anonymous, you have been promoted to commander of forces in subsaharan africa. If you so please, you can draw up a future possible plan to invade ethiopia. The forces you have are 9 divs militia, plus anything you can scrape off of Middle East Command. Fortunately, italy will not be able to supply their troops, should they be at war with us.

I accept this promotion with gratitude, and I promise that I shall use all of the powers that have been invested in me through this office for the continuing security of the British Empire and the maintenance of the balance of power.

In this interest, I propose that instead of intervening directly on the behalf of Ethiopia in their war against imperialist Italy, we send several divisions of 'volunteers', as well as a small stipend of valuable steel, coal, and supplies to the kingdom of Ethiopia to aid them in their war. I ask only for around two or three divisions of regular British infantry to this effect. I daresay that any one of our own fighting boys have the courage and equipment to take on at least two or three of his Italian equivalents!

The downside of indirect aid, however, is that we must continue to allow the Italians the use of the Suez Canal, as otherwise they, and most importantly Germany will see it as an act of war. This means that the Italians will be able to continue reinforcing and resupplying their troops in the Horn. However, the Italians' ability to project power is severely lacking, and the fact that moving massive amounts of men across thousands of miles of water will severly overstrain their transport capabilities should limit this downside somewhat.

Nonetheless, one way or another, we must help Ethiopia in her time of need! This war is nothing more than a blatant war of aggressive imperialism against a sovereign nation, and if we fail to stop it now, I say that we, and the League of Nations have failed in our duties.

OOC:
"Appointment of Sir Wookie to command of Far East Command."

What exactly will I command and where? Does this include the whole asian theatre? Only India? Only Micronesia?

I'd like pictures and such please.

My Lords and Sirs:

I, being an officer in His Majesty's service, am available for such appointments as you may deem necessary and proper.

Your most obedient servant,

James McFadden, Greys

(OOC: The Royal Scots Greys served in Palestine during the Arab insurgency which took place 1936-39, as did a host of other regiments; I say little more because of the flamewar potential.

I'll take wherever you give me.)
