Evening Standard: "Navy's Biggest Ship To Guard London Games"

Oh I can see that working, loads of manoeuvring room in the Thames for even a medium sized carrier!!!!

I take it it will be in MCT mode, loads of rotary wing! Ahh but wait - we have no FW do we - Doh!!!!!:frustrated:
 
I wonder whether this will include the Paralympics. If it does, HMS OCEAN's ship's company will be committed from 27 Jul to 9 Sep. This would mean them sacrificing normal 'school holiday' Summer leave with their families for two years running but at least they should be entertaining:
All I Want For Christmas - HMS OCEAN (Now nearly 2.5 million hits.)​

Right, so thats 13000 troops, HMS Ocean, battery of anti aircraft missiles and an assortment of "special services" total cost if its on budget of over £9billion.
Is this the Olympics or a Libya conflict re-match?

Don't think Ocean is bigger than Illustrious, Lusty is some 26ft longer and wider in the beam, though Ocean has a greater displacement. Come to that, we could of had a fully equipped carrier with Harriers if they had spent the 41million on keeping them instead of a closing the Olympics ceremony, after all what was wrong with "sunset" played by RM Band?

I think you've got the better deal.... the novelty of London will soon wear off, especially after a week once your spends have run out.

It's going to be very boring for them, doing a job that the now cut up 'Vince or empty Ark could do nearly as well!
