  2. So the Navy is reduced to a "Boat" show....not a "Ship" show...a "Boat" show...

    Jackie Fisher must be rotating at a rate of knots these days.

  3. Jackie Fisher, wasn't he the Admiral who thought that getting his matelots to dance with each other was an innovation?

    You cynical bugger. I for one shall be at the boat show on sunday and will take them along to see the wokka wokka and meet the Wet And ****ing Useless, glory seeking, overpaid aircrew who'll be the ones to rescue us when it all goes horribly wrong with the new boat in the middle of the Bristol Channel.
  5. Cool story.
  6. The RN used to be able to send a frigate there.
  7. ...and still fulfil its commitment to provide a destroyer or frigate to each of Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 (SNMG1 formerly STANAVFORLANT) and Standing NATO Maritime Group 2 (SNMG2 formerly STANAVFORMED). Can't remember the last time that happened.

    What? To Earls Court, where the show used to be? Impressive navigation. Must have been hell doing the collision avoidance on the Cromwell Road

    So the RN sailed into the London Boatshow.

    Bloody careless of them but at least it wasn't Iranian Territorial waters.

  12. I thought they were passengers on them, not that they actually operated them. Maybe they meant US Navy and USMC.
  13. Why isn't the boat show in the summer? Longer days, more people around, more totty....
  14. The Royal Navy has now come round the fact that they are merely a taxi service for The Corps.

    'eeerr, you won't believe who I had sitting in the back of my HMS Ocean last week......42 cdo, lovely bunch of blokes they were, left a big tip..........they were naked most of the time'
  15. Double post as my head wand is bent.
