December 22nd, 1942

UNITED KINGDOM:
Submarine HMS Sturdy laid down.

Destroyer HMS Vigilant launched.

Frigate HMS Ness commissioned. (Dave Shirlaw)

GERMANY:
U-294 laid down.

U-200 commissioned. (Dave Shirlaw)

POLAND: Cracow: Bomb blasts in two of the city’s cafes have killed at least 20 German officers. The explosions, the work of a group of young Zionists led by Adolf Liebeskind, mark the climax of a resistance campaign which has included arson attacks on Nazi targets and the theft of weapons from German soldiers and police. Increasing numbers of younger Jews have joined the underground resistance movements, often under the umbrella of Soviet and Polish communist partisans. They want to show that the Jewish people will not go to their deaths without putting up a fight.

U.S.S.R.: The rapid Soviet advance retakes Morozovsk, Fydorovka and Nikolkoe. The Germans start a swift retreat from exposed positions in the Caucasus.

NORTH AFRICA: The British V Corps attacks north of Medjez el Bab. The heavy rain does not slow the advance or the heavy fighting around Longstop Hill, which they are trying to take.

BURMA: The British 47th Brigade advances down both sides of the Mayu Peninsula. Major-General Wilfrid Lewis Lloyd (GOC 10th Indian Division) has his troops dispersed in this deployment with the 123rd Brigade moving off toward Rathedaung. (Steen Ammentorp)

CANADA: Minesweeper HMCS Transcona commenced refit Halifax, Nova Scotia for engine repairs. (Dave Shirlaw)

U.S.A.: Sue Dauser takes oath of office as Superintendent of Navy Nurse Corps, becoming first woman with the relative rank of captain in US Navy. She was promoted to the rank of captain on 26 February 1944.
Destroyer USS Foote commissioned.

Corvette USS Might commissioned. (Dave Shirlaw)

ATLANTIC OCEAN: U-653 loses a man washed overboard at 0810hrs. [Bootsmaat Heinz Wendler] (Alex Gordon)

I’ve always had an interest in history, and was interesting reading how the Germans were forced out of Russia by a determined population, even though that population was trained, equipped and led by the Soviet army.

This very same level of determination and the second amendment equipped population could eventually save our country.

$223.03 round trip coach between NY to Montreal? And that doesn’t include the taxes.

Well, yes - But you could go to a New years dinner for $1.50! Did you notice they still don't have the Germans in Stalingrad isolated yet ? Thought that happened much earlier in December.

That's outrageous. The government should take over passenger service on the railroads. Then they could make it affordable for all citizens and it would still pay for itself through ticket sales and the taxpayers would be off the hook.

(cough)

I have the impression that the Germans are surrounded but the area that is contained is so large that they still have room to move around to some degree.
