    So the RN's version of Sodexho delivered a handful of matelots and booties to a big ship full of bad guys, Whats the real story no real RN ships about any more or do we rely on the RFA to do it all. That would be like asking Stena lines to lay on the Normandy invasion, oh yes they did that with Norland didnt they!

    Well done the Navy.
    You've managed to face the enemy in enemy waters without surrendering.

    More likely an un-licenced mini-cab. They're cheaper, and you know about the pressure on budgets.
