BBC: "Royal Navy HMS Gannet 'Busiest Rescue Base In UK'"


War Hero
The article for some strange reason reminded me of the occasion the Peace Protestors turned up at Gannets main gate to have a go at another military presence other than Faslane.

As soon as the press arrived the skipper had the SAR rescue boards placed at the main gate.

HMS Gannet Home of 819 SAR unit, blah blah.
Umpteen rescues this year to date.
Umpteen people saved
And so on.

Protest lasted about another five minutes when they realised they had been out done by the senior service.

The lads and lasses of the SAR unit do a grand job. Hope the government recognises their endeavors in life saving and leaves Gannet SAR alone.
