I have been busy in quiet moments (if that makes sense) doing some background research into the Swiss army (sorry Red/White) and their preparedness to defend their water frontiers. Evidently they were not as well equipped as their neighbours prior to ww1 and did not remedy this until rather later. I will hopefully find out even more if and when I get hold of the book pictured here. I have been planning some input from San Martino too. More anon including a super ww2 vintage Swiss patrol boat in a couple of photos sent by a kind Swiss contact.
