London Times, 8 December 1906, p. 5: THE COURT-MARTIAL ON ADMIRAL NEBOGATOFF. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ST. PETERSBURG, DEC. 7.
Admiral Nebogatoff’s line of defence before the Admiralty Court is to show that it was impossible in view of his defective ships, guns, and ammunition, of offering the slightest resistance to the Japanese. The Court has consented to call Admiral Rozhdestvensky, but not to allow him to speak except on the circumstances of the surrender. An application by Admiral Nebogatoff’s counsel to cite Admiral Birileff has been refused.
