Looks like blame avoidance, fly a septic flag, so it's their fault when it all goes pare shaped?We used to have (back when I was in!) a USCG detachment on board when we did drugs patrols in the Windies so that we moved from a military role to a police role when going for an intercept.
This included dropping the white ensign and flying the USCG flag therefore nominally becoming a USCG asset.
Lancaster, 94 in Windies.I’ve seen the ensigns of the RIBS changed to reflect who is ‘coming at ya’, NEVER the Ensign of the Warship or Auxiliary hosting.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the USCG an arm of the US military?Lancaster, 94 in Windies.
. US Coastguard, although heavily armed, are not strictly military. powers of arrest which a military force (including US Navy) don't have.
Very good point. They do have a long reach!! I step back from my 'non-military' statement (I wont bother editing my post - gives something to talk about)!!
Thanks @huwshpisThe powers of arrest under the law of England and Wales have been considerably modified over the last 20 years,
