Will it get weighed in or should we be watching Withams?

Put a GPMG on the bow and it become a fast attack gun boat!

Well the fisheries protection fleet may be a little busy come Brexit so perhaps we can have an inshore militia. GMG anyone?

The last HMS Magpie was commanded 1950-52 by now-Lord-High-Admiral then Lt Cdr Prince P. Somebody on the Ship Names Committee (I should think nowadays a VERY part-time body) has chalked up a Brownie point.

Bit of a bumpy ride though ? :smile:

Noticed that we seem to be selling off / decommissioning more and more ships / boats ?
The two A/C's are encouraging,but when are all the others arriving ?

I know it's all about Funding - but staffing / crewing seems to be a problem now ?

The Fame of the RN is STILL strongly in Spanish ( and French ) minds - Trafalgar et al...
and we need to keep our Navy up to our standards - scares the hell out of them.:-D

A bit small, would make a good Pilot boat for a harbor master?
Or the Indian navy might take it up, they had most of our CS95 clothing!
