Busy day on the Clyde

Fresh in from my Spy on the Clyde a complete Fleet of amphibious assets have gathered for a bit of a piss up. Or maybe they are going to land and capture the Greenock, Kilcreggan, Helensburgh ferry that has posed such a danger to passing USN Assets.

Or they thought it was an Old Firm's derby match and thought they would join in the fighting.

Any of you in the Picture?

Perhaps there's a by election looming and it's a subliminal "look what you'll lose" message......nice phot though Nutty. Being out for a few years now anyone able to name them all?

All very impressive until we remember that this force cannot do a landing opposed by even the most obsolete and dated air power as it has NO air defence. Not exactly a 'balanced' force.
Last time I saw the Gareloch looking like that with big ships was when the place was full of reserve/scrap awaiting breaking at the Ship breakers .

:nemo: :nemo:

Maybe they're planning on invading the Kirkmichael Estate and getting rid of all "The Beach Boys" ?? (Evil barstewards, one and all)

Belive we were there as well (Manchester), cant see the picture cause the settings are poo, but i think we were escorting the QE2 up the clyde for the last time!

so there was some kind off air defence there!

There will be no RN Trident boats or other RN ships based in Scotland, if Alex Salmond, the SNP and the leader of the Catholic Church in Scotland have their way.

'Scottish Catholic leader urges public to vote in Glenrothes by-election'

Well that only gives you two choices Falmouith or Guzz thats if V boats are allowed in when armed or possibly Milford Haven if the Taffies have not also chucked Pusser out. Would we invest all that mones in a Welsh base with the possibility of being thrown out a few years down the line?

If we have to share out the assets we could give then the Type 45's and half built CV's and get some proper ships.

Go Alex Go.
