Another glorious tradition gone to the wall

I am distraught as it appears that there will not be a fleet review for the diamond jubilee next year. I am sure we could manage to muster half a dozen or so grey jobs and if not, we could always borrow some from the French or the Germans to make up the numbers.

I realise there in no royal yacht, titter titter but I am sure the IOW ferries could come to the rescue, fly a bit of bunting from the St Catherine and she would look the dogs bollocks.

Perhaps the RN could afford to send a couple of redundent C in C's barges, or failing that 27' whalers, to join the 1000 craft expected to follow Her Maj down the Thames.

Maybe if the older generation had been a bit more entrepreneurial, less willing to man the lines, never breeded such a bunch of dole dwelling wasters, told everyone within earshot 'everything is shit', we may have been able to put on a show.

Careful Wits,

At just about that time was the very first Moon Landing.

'Mooning' was yet to be invented/perfected and Harold was still in No. 10..............!

I was ratarsed down the barbican in Guzz for the 1977 review, evidently that didn't qualify for the silver jubilee medal. Had to wait 25 years to get the gold one!!

Dragon Boats, Outrigger canoes, Dhows, Lorchas, Sampans, they are all contributing to save Betty being embarassed by our NO Fleet, sad, so bloody sad.

Awaiting incoming.

Call me boring, but I'd rather our warships were off doing stuff around the globe, than swanning about in Spithead cheering ship...

Yep, it's a shame there'll be no review. Nothing like being on the upperdeck bored to death for hours for no apparent reason. The biggest shame though is it won't afford the same old tossers the opportunity to bang on about what a waste of money it is and we should be deployed, earning a living, stopping pirates, smashing in compounds, saving Libya etc etc etc.

Tradition my arse, waste of time.
