Royal Navy displays its wide-ranging abilities

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1.  
  2. What was the role of the Hawk's?
     
  3. Ooer! A bit too much "Left hand down a bit?"
     
  4. Reminding the Navy what fixed wing aircraft in British colours look like?

  6. There is indeed a wide range of iPods available now.
     
  7. Imagine that. An entire land, air and sea war conducted by the Naval Service without any Pongos or Crabs to bugger it up. No wonder things went so well. The only things missing were properly tooled-up aircraft carriers but at least replacements are on the way. :)

    I know its good fun to bait our dark blue friends but is there anything different in this and other displays by the Army and RAF?

    Just seems like a good bit of PR to me and I suppose they have to find something to do when they aren't that busy :)
     

  9. Oh pleaaaase! It will be the usual slightly more impressive than current Navy Days, (although nothing like as impressive as family Sea Days were in the 60's), carefully staged PR op with a Hawk flying around and everyone going dagadagadagadagadagadagadagadagadagadaga! at it. A bunch of fed up Royals will nip ashore in a raider and throw themselves down artistically in the surf while the Phot takes some pictures, then an LCVP will come up to the beach and a Viking and a tank of some sort along with a Landie will trundle up through the surf and more Phot action. The only shots of the day will be from the Phot but we'll get lots of nice photographs for the assorted in house mags and comics to proclaim how awesome we are.

    MCPV - Maritime Combat Power Visits, Solent, 24-27 Oct 11. HMS BULWARK takes the lead role in a multi-platform Maritime Combat Power Visit involving HMS BULWARK, RFA MOUNTS BAY, HMS SUTHERLAND, RFA BLACK ROVER along with supporting land bases which included FPGRM (Fleet Protection Group Royal Marines) A Company, 539 Sqd, JSATO YEOVILTON, NAS YEOVILTON, HMS RAIDER, CHF. The week consisted of a rehearsal day, a VVIP influence day and two sea days for students on advanced command and staff course (ACSC) 15. The week culminated in an amphibious demonstration onto Browndown Beach. The MCPV was identified as a perfect opportunity to deliver the core Naval message and show off the utility of the Royal Navy to a group of hand picked, influential individuals who will begin to advocate the Naval narrative in areas we wish to be prevalent. Here, souvenir photos taken by students on Advanced Command & Staff Course. HMS BULWARK in background.
