    Years ago a bloke from Royal Ordnance told me about a frigate we sold to Nigeria (a country of which his pronunciation left something to be desired in these politically correct days). Frantic phone call, the frigate you sold us is sinking. Bod flown out toute de suite, went onboard, indeed water level slowly rising inside ... pumps had been taken out and sold.
