Following on from this thread, the Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats are looking for sponsorship from submariners.

Buttercups press release said:
Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats in Maidstone, Kent is urgently looking for suitable ‘foster’ families to help in re-homing as many as 28 goats, following the MOD’s recently announced decision that it has no immediate need to continue hyperbaric research using animals in support of its Submarine Escape Rescue and Abandonment System.

Previously used as part of a series of trials conducted for the MOD by QinetiQ, the goats, which are all healthy, well cared for and socialised animals, range in age from 18-months to eight years and include a mix of male and female Saanan, Toggenburg and Anglo-Nubian breeds. As no other research involving animals is carried out by QinetiQ, retaining the herd is no longer necessary, so new homes are urgently needed for all of them.

There's also QinetiQs' rare Chinese Panda ejector seat testing herd,
the Galapagos tortoise SSE testing team, Hamsters-as-fire-blankets
experimental division, the use of meercats to clean external hydraulic
pipework committee and the replace the trot sentry with a gibbon
programme.

All have now spent all the dosh given to them by the MOD, so all
livestock needs to be re-homed, otherwise it will be sold as a job
lot to the Spanish for use in religious festivals.

The gibbons, thankfully, do not need to be re-homed, as the programme proved such a success that they are now all employed as trots. Their rudimentary grasp of English has been obfuscated by teaching them to speak in a Welsh accent and putting S&S badges on their shirts.

The subject of going from aft to fwd and vice versa on the casing has been exercising the HSE lately. No matter what the Jimmy says 'screaming along the casing and up over the fin while looping around any raised masts in the process to check draft marks' is dangerous. AND now the bloody gibbons are starting to copy the UDTs!
