Mary Rose sunk by French cannonball ?
« on: January 09, 2011, 01:11:54 pm »

When reading the article about HMS Victory this article caught my eye , and although the heading may be a bit ambiguous it seems as if it may have caused the events leading to the sinking !

Pure academic supposition.....

Absolutely no evidence exists one way or the other......

It simply sells TV documentaries.........or maybe I am just a synnic..sinnik........sinic.........oh okay, I can't spell it........

Yes you complete Cynic..  :}

But I think not outside the realms of impossibility , Does not look good for the Flag ship to sunk by a freak wind/ Miss balance of weight etc etc but not quite as bad as being sunk by the French !!.  It should be noted that the report does say the ship was not actually sunk by the French but this shot could have led to it sailing so oddly as observed.   %%

Why was there a French cannon Ball in the ship ?.
Why were there bodies found in the same area with carpentry tools.
Why was there French shot found by the wreck..
Why have the Americans not wriiten a Film about how they saved the day.... Oh they were still in Great Britain / England then  :} :} :}

Unfortunately this we Will probably never ever know, but as a plausible explanation I don't think should be readily dismissed.

Why have the Americans not written a Film about how they saved the day??  <*<  >>:-(  The answer to that is simple!  WE just haven't gotten to it yet!!   ;D

HELL, we're still revising the history from the last two hundred years!  ;)  %) 

Not to worry though!, I have it from a reputable source that in Barack Hussien Obama's second term, it SHALL be written how He, the Most Merciful, will save us all, in the past, present AND future!!   :P   :}   ALL PRAISE THE IMMACULATE ONE!   :D

Have Patience!   %%  :embarrassed:   {-)   {-)

What absolute rubbish. >>:-( >>:-(

There is no way that the French would have kept that to themselves, even if they weren't sure they were responsible?
(I'm sure there would have been one Frenchman on their gunship boat who would remember firing this so called "fatal shot")

They couldn't keep a secret for 465 minutes, let alone 465 years :-)) :-))

It's totally beyond the realms of credulity %) %) for them to have sunk the pride of Henry's fleet!!!!!! <*< <*<
