Hmm, which reminds me of my other trivia question that I'm not sure I phrased
properly. I was trying to bring out that the French fleet had been taken to
French West Africa (Algiers?) for protection when France was invaded. The British
scuttled the entire French fleet at one fell swoop, to prevent them from falling
into German hands and/or for fear that the Vichy French would use them in
cooperation with the Germans, much to DeGaulle's consternation.
I knew somebodies fleet was scuttled, i just forgot who the actors were.
