Drink Navy

Just when you thought you`d seen everything their lordships pull another stunt.

It seems the White Ensign is to be be copyrighted as a commercial logo and licensed for use on products such as computer games and soft drinks. Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, the First Sea Lord, said: "In looking at new ways of communicating with our audiences, licensing and merchandising our brand and placing it firmly on to the high street is an exciting and obvious area to try to exploit."

Cap Tallies will lose the ships names and become advertising space. Any suggestions? I'll start off with

1. Anne Summers for the Sailors, Female, to wear

I fear this could backfire if it becomes too popular and ultimately goes the same way as Burberry, etc and becomes Chav UK!

Does this mean that we can look forward to a boost in welfare funds, etc or is the cash more likely to end up being soaked up by the treasury?

You do all realize that sailors hats will become all the rage and will put the table tennis bat manufacturers out of business - slogan on billboards...

[align=center]The new RN Hat Bat - Bat for the Navy whilst you wear The Hat!

Comes with a choice of cap tallies: choose your favourite ship!
A real sailor with tie it for you![/align]


Would go down great with the kids! :lol: :lol: :lol:

The money should go to the RNBT. If it raises billions, then it could pay for new ships... :idea:

I expect Pussers Rum (used to have the White Ensign, then removed when company sold to a Septic, then replaced) ought to remove it then as that might encourage people to drink. Of course Pussers is medicinal only, stops scurvy, well I have never had scurvy.
1000 years of building the RN brand name from King Alfred the Great (I wonder where the painting in the Foyer of South Terrace of Alfred the Great has gone) onwards, I do hope they do not do anything silly.

Inflatible Navy? Keep it to yourself or we'll end up with Halfords winning the next Fleet Maintenance Contract with dozens of 16 year old spotty kids running around with puncture repair kits.
