    That much is clear. The little hamster is the boss, though he does look a little cold. He probably needs more porridge.
     
  3. That Commander bloke. His name's Mike Smith, right?

    So whose jacket has he borrowed? The name tape is neither Smith nor HMS Somerset.

    Well spotted. He appears to be some bloke called 'Royal Navy'.

    *checks for hook and line, but takes the bait* Perhaps it might say "Royal Navy" - though how we've sunk so low that civilians and johnny foreigner doesn't immediately recognise them I don't know.
     
  6. Well that's going to be useful when he tries to find his jacket in the Mess cloakroom.

    He's the boss. He takes any one he wants. (Wardroom. Cough.)

  10. I love your MOD explanations for how effective a weapon is:

    The cricket ball tracking abilities never fails to impress! :)

    It should really include a mention of a London Bus and the size of Wales (or a whale) to score maximum points.
     
  13. ...in view of their successes with cricket balls, the boffins are now trying to develop a system to track and destroy targets the size of an Exocet...

    It does explain England's recent success at the game.
