What exactly do we have left?

can anyone provide a snapshot of what we had in terms of fleet size, say 1982 (year I joined Army) and now.

I would be interested in seeing how it compares.

thanks

Is it going to visit St Nazaire? I'd pay to watch that!

I believe that they used to match Inf Bns to Surface units one for one. 52 reg Bns when I left in 88. the same number of proper grey war canoes!

They'll all fit in the fountain at the end of the Mall, make travelling to the review cheaper!

Nothing to add to the thread, but I just had to say I love your avatar.
Thanks. It was a gift of a photograph. I doubt he realised what he was standing in front of. Sums him up really - apart from the fact that cocks can be nice to look at, are useful and you can get pleasure out of them. Unlike that twunt!

cheers for that post seaweed unbelievable to see that and now 60 years on what's left? i think when the boss pegs it the next coronation review of the fleet will be slightly less impressive
