Philippines Q3

Not much this quarter...tho the Philippines is carefully noting events in As Salif...but just wait till next quarter. ^_^

Filipino Information, News, and Entertainment Radio
Q3/27

1 July
Today it was announced that the ban on construction of ships over 5,000 tons, until the results of the Palawan explosion are determined, does not apply to the battlecruisers Samal and Bohol, as they were based on an Indian design and as such would not be expected to share any design flaws in the magazines of home-designed vessels.

(ooc: of course, those are the only ships over 5,000 tons building...)

12 August
Former Foreign Minister Juan Sebastien de Varga today announced that he intends to run for Presidente in the 1929 elections.

"The current Government has obviously gone soft," said Señor de Varga, "and it is my opinion that it is time for a change!"

29 September
The preliminary results of the investigation into the loss of the cruiser Palawan have been released.

It appears that the explosion that destroyed the cruiser was a result of careless handling of ammunition in the forwards magazine. As best can be determined, a dropped starshell low-order detonated, igniting the ready powder stores, which then flashed into the open magazine.

New loading procedures have been reccomended.

As for the remains of the ship itself, they remain tied up at a dock in Saigon, and their disposition will be determined soon.

Your confidence in Indian workmanship should serve as an example to nations the world over. Should make them less nervous when their private sector outsources all its jobs our way in seventy years.
