You didn't need to create a new thread. Posting your travel itinerary for Saturday was quite enough.

If you post your return itinerary, you could be in with a chance to win two weeks running.


PS You haven't allowed for weekend engineering works.
There isn't a 15:30, you will just miss the 15:00 and will have to wait for the 16:00. This means that you will miss the train for the final leg of your journey, but this may be replaced by a bus service anyway, so you'll still be late. The result will be that you'll just miss the evening meal as well. It's a bugger.

Well, I certainly hope they've got a steelier resolve than the RIR bods who surrendered to a bunch of Sierra Leonian child soldiers had! :D
Yep. Whenever anyone makes the obligatory crack about iPods in every RN-related thread, I daresay someone else is bound to mention the West Side Boys. :lol: Note that HMS Argyll's helos helped search for the captives.

I don't need to look for them. I just collect 'em as we go along. :D

I just love the "You surrendered" chant that echoes round HQ every year.

As for the OP

a) Doubt it.

b) Don't care anyway, because I'm not going for the rugby.


It's a day of drinking interrupted for 80 minutes by 15 fat blokes and 15 Fijians.

Weren't two AAC Lynxes based aboard ARGYLL for the rescue?

How many helicopters do you think HMS Argyll has/had? It had one Lynx Mk8 (or was it a 3 I can never remember which is which) on Op Barras. The rest of the "helos" were made up of Mk7 from 657 Sqn and some Chinooks from that RAF squadron who consider themselves to be SF because they sometimes carry the Shakies laundry.

I don't mind the banter, but the way you write it you imply that the codheads of HMS Argyll made the rescue operation entirely on their own, which flagrantly isn't true.

Finally; the Army will win because our Fijians are better than yours. 8O
Admittedly, the T23's hangar can only stow a single helo (typically, a Lynx Mk 8 or Merlin) but I merely cited the linked article. I've certainly implied nothing about any rescue operation; you've done that: :p

Jungle search after kidnap of British soldiers
Daily Telegraph 27 Aug 2000 said:
...The 11 soldiers disappeared as they were driving back to their base in the town of Benguema, about 25 miles south-east of Freetown. Yesterday's air and ground searches were conducted by helicopters from the warship Argyll and by other British troops...
As for the Beans & Gravy match, no doubt the winner will be the team that fields ANY Fijians. Oh for the days when the RN still trained Kiwis before the MOD made the price prohibitive. :cry:

At a recent RN warm up match against Esher, in which we got hammered, I collared one of the Navy training team at half time and asked him about our chances of beating the Army this year. His answer was short, to the point and involved a lot of swearing. Think i'll stay in the car park this year!

Unfortunately they did just. who were the idiot copycats who tried to streak on the pitch, the guy in pink boxers was funny on the top row in the stands. The idiots on the pitch went too far. Do they get done by the military or civvy coppers?
 
#18
