"They have been joining up the dots —almost literally — on HMS Queen Elizabeth, the new aircraft carrier, the largest warship built in Britain, which is now towering above the rooftops in Rosyth dockyard.

The five huge sections from different yards for the 65,000-tonne ship have been assembled. In the coming year it will be floated out of the dock, and named by the Queen — the first naval ship to bear her name.

Crew members are shortly to be given a special app for their mobile phones to help them navigate around the ship."

Not good

If the crew rely on a mobile Phone App for getting around the ship? Do they also get one for damage control? I can imagine the duty fire party all looking at their mobiles wondering where to go!

Ah, but aren't these all airey planes? Apart from the budgies. And we won't have any airey planes for years and years......... hence lean manning. Maybe!


Still, if they all have iPads, it will make things easier off Iran..............

Looks a pretty valid point to me.

Brilliant idea as long as you can get a signal and you're not PAYG and run out of credit. Does the mob pay your phone bills?

Having said that, I've had some reliefs on watch who could have done with an app to tell them where they're meant to be and at what time!

No different to rouges getting their little green ship famil booklets when joining. It's just moving with the times and embracing technology. But we all know how we don't like that kind of thing on here.

Cue the dismissive remarks about the youth today, it will never get commissioned and the usual US Carrier wankfest.

This app thing sounds novel but in Annex B of Chapter 2 of the BRNC guide dress regulations (Which seems to be quoting a whole different article that applies to the whole of the naval service) "Service personnel in uniform are not to use their mobile phones when transiting in Ships and Establishments"

Whatever happened to those joining routines involving a paper chase like orienteering, full of finding the paint locker/inflam and the hanger quas space, after jackson, and generally annoying everyone in the wardrobe flat? Might be nice if they could embed a calendar and peg board state to it. They need a baby woo to code it for them....

Have you seen the f%$&ing size of that USS Diabetes?? No messdecks, you sleep in the main drag, no CSB at sea, and the state of the markings, no wonder sprog LT.JGs (Subbies) arent allowed down the grots without a jarhead (bootneck) in close attendance. (warning, some of these comments may be complete Elmer Fudd)

The ship is the Navy’s biggest ever. But it will take a crew of only 690 to drive it and man it — this goes up to 1,680 when the F35 attack jets are on board. Alternatively the ship can carry 920 Royal Marines.


“The Americans tell me that we are either heroic or stupid,” says Captain Petitt, “They want to know how we manage it with such small numbers.”


He adds: “We do it by maximum use of automation — particularly in handling ammunition and ordnance.”.......:sad7: Also..The QE will be able to fly 36 F35 strike aircraft and house Apache attack helicopters.!!!!!
