HMS Northumberland returns from piracy mission

Ministry of Defence said:
The Royal Navy frigate HMS Northumberland and her crew have returned home to Plymouth following an eight-month maritime policing patrol in the Middle East.

Reading that it looked like we had returned to the days of Raleigh and Drake, when they went out and raided the Dons bringing back part of the swag for the Crown, as opposed to the actual anti-piracy mission it was.

Yet surely that might just help the navy fill up the budget gaps. A certain amount of privateering on the side whilst engaged in legal activities and we could soon have Ark Royal fully operational. Just a thought.
