Very good.As soon as the RN gets a reputation for anything every one tries to copy.
Similar story coming out of Kiel heading for Denmark on the RE yacht St Christopher a German boat (might have been a mine sweeper) is nearly level with us and the Skipper tells us to put up the White Ensign as technically it's a military vessel cue as ship gets level with us all German crew who were on deck stood to attention as we passed quick wave and dropped the flag and away we wentAlienFTM said:So I quite calmly dropped the ensign in salute and stood to attention for them.
THAT surprised them. Amused, I watched the scurry of hands on the tower trying to get to their ensign to return the salute. They were still scurrying as the U-Boat shot over the horizon.
Well it made me laugh.
