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

    Step forward the star of the show:

    How I laughed when I saw the nickname...

  3. Heaton is too small to have part of it described as 'central'. And the WAH clock is running.

  9. Just wondering how the RAF PR machine are going to twist this to make it look like they had a hand in it and save a couple of Air Commodores.
  10. 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?

  14. 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.
