    Apparently it was planned that Hitler would receive the British surrender on board the Aviso Grille and then proceed up the Thames on her pinnace the Grillet. As he was a poor sailor he might have been some what green. The closest the Aviso Grille actually got was laying some mines in the Thames estuary.

    As he said, "On land I am a hero. At sea I am a coward."

    And so I'm surprised that he didn't plan hist triumph on a pocket battleship or a heavy cruiser. The Deutschland might have been appropriate ( and a lot more stable) but perhaps he never really believed in Sealion?.
