I often wonder if the MOD select their stories by means of a random number generator.

Step forward the star of the show:

the ship's executive officer, Lieutenant Sean 'Central' Heaton
How I laughed when I saw the nickname...

Afterwards they all had Chilli for dinner and the sea was pretty calm.

You all missed the point. The real story is "Royal Navy ship enjoying summer cruise in the Med has long weekend in pleasant Italian port. All this, and pay." Beats Catterick or Aldershot, doesn't it?

For all we know the RN planted the mine around 42. Then waited and waited just for a bit of publicity and a cushey trip to the med. Sneeky bastards.

Sometimes matelots even have to put on a uniform and pretend to do warry things. Sod that for a game of soldiers. Where's me ******* make 'n' mend, Chief?

A boat destroying mines? HMS Magregor or the Maggie class?
