Ark Royal's disposal

#1
Wilkinson Sword or Gillette? Both are in line to benefit.

However, Aberdeen in Hong Kong Harbour looks interested in her hulk as another fish restaurant. Fumigation will be necessary first otherwise their freshly cooked fish will be tainted by the smell of 25 years worth of unwashed sailors. The Royal Marines, endured aboard ,will smell as sweet as ever

Don't forget the all-pervasive odour of Brylcreem from the embarked light-blue contingent that will aslo need expunging.

Mods - is the really CA or should it be moved to Gash Barge?

It's both. You make the point that Ark Royal had Bootnecks and Crabfats and Wrens and Sailors and Canteen Damagers aboard. Couldn't they all have been one? Same uniform Same rank structure . How much money would all that have saved?

Why don't we stick it in dry dock in Pompey, after all, it's older than most of the present hulk there that tourists flock to see
