Narvil [11]: Outcome of First Battle of Narvik

With the end of the blockade skirmish the loose ends from the First Battle of Narvil draw to a close.

Honours to both sides, but the Germans have the edge as they have a destroyer force that can attempt to make a dash back for Germany (or at the very least Trondhiem which is in German hands). Bunched up for the dash:

Then spread out for the Swordfish attack from HMS Furious (and she jolly well is after the indignantly of HMS Penelope's amidships)!

The RN is stepping up preparations to attack the remaining forces in Narvik (the battleship HMS Warspite and a gaggle of Fleet destroyers), which should be a rather one-sided affair.
