Royal Navy Rescues Stricken Army Yacht

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. Huzzah! Where ever there are iPods in danger, the Navy will be there!
  2. Dunkirk reenactment walts.
  3. The shame of it.

    Do the matelots get salvage money?
  4. Not if the Yacht was a HMSTY... same firm.
  5. Hmm, from how I read it, the Andrew sailed up, had a butchers and decided it was too much hassle before giving the yacht some wood from which to fashion a rudder and making best speed for the nearest G&T. 'Rescued' my perfectly formed gluts.
  6. Skippered by 2 RLC Officers...

    Need to stick to skippering excell spreadsheets methinks!

  8. 75 Nautical mlies?

    All of 3 minutes flight time!

    The brave sailors risking bingo fuel for a fly over.
  9. 3 minutes on a river class.....**** me, it can fly over as well?
  10. And this necessitated a press release?
    But I suppose it's good to read that the RN still sails through the night.

    Adopting the latest RN tradition the Navy trio handed over their mobile phones before going back to their own ship.

    On the plus side the Captain didn't surender his ship to the yaughts occupants so well done RN.
  12. RLC at sea, rudderless. This is the stuff of proverbs. Good job they phoned home before the gin ran out.

    Not the first time the navy's had to rescue the army and it won't be the last.

    I thought the navy turned up then was quickly re-tasked as they are little short of ships and sailing time at the moment. wont be long before the victory is doing the carribean drug patrols.

    or blockading stanley, one of the two :)
