HMS Cornwall rescues hostages from pirates

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  2. Hasn't it been scrapped yet?
  3. No, but she is getting the SDSR axe when she returns from deployment.
  4. Only two more months to go:
  5. Anyone got any pedaloes that can be painted grey?
  6. On a serious note, is there a link to the ships that remain in service beyond 2011 if any?
  7. HMS Belfast is awaiting a refit but it won't happen until the tender has been put out for the pedaloes.
  8. Go here on the RN website and delete:

    • Carriers: ARK ROYAL and INVINCIBLE (although ILLUSTRIOUS will only be around until 2014)
    • T22 Frigates: All of them
    • T42 Destroyers: MAN CHESTER and GLOUCESTER (although the remaining L1VERPOOL and YORK are due to go in 2012 and EDINBURGH in 2013)
    • Assault Ships: ALBION (only extended readiness but this has become the kiss of death of late)
    • Antarctic Patrol Ship: ENDURANCE (already written off after serious flood)
    • Mine Countermeasures Vessels: WALNEY (already gone).
    As for RFAs, delete LARGS BAY, BAYLEAF and FORT GEORGE.
  9. I wonder if perhaps it would be better if the RN had kept the drugs from interceptions, sold them, and used the money to mitigate against the cuts....
