Falkland Is - guard ship

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by Kev73, Jan 7, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    does anyone know what ship is reliving the Edinburgh?

    Awfully sorry dear Junior Member but ships programmes are seldom discussed on an unofficial Naval forum. Something to do with security.

    I think you may find the RN does not advise the press of operational ship movements. Especially something like the FI's unless they, (RN), are scare mongering regards the current situation re Argentina's sabre rattling. A normal ships deployment is rarely news worthy unless like the Daring Class which was the first of it's type to carry our the patrol and therefore was of interest to people.

    It's one of those things, if the government or Admiralty wish we humble beings to know - they will publicise the matter.

    Ask Albert in the Avondale, he knows all (if he's still alive)

    in the press just before the Edinburgh left on her 2011 deployment!!!!

    HMS Edinburgh leaves for South Atlantic, Falklands and South Georgia patrolling — MercoPress

    and again for her 2012/13 deployment

    HMS Edinburgh set to leave Portsmouth on her final... - Silobreaker

    even the navy news ran a story the day they left

    https://navynews.co.uk/archive/news/item/5885

    so seeing how I even asked if anyone knew if a ship had already set off for the south atlantic.... it was not an unreasonable question...

    There you go. Did all the work yourself.

    The power of google. Eeeee ain't the tinternet great.

    Just goes to show you get the right answers if you look in the right place and you don't take the lazy route and ask others to do the work for you!

    Maybe now you will leave us old sods to just fester and take the piss as we have since Site immemorial!!!

    yes google is great.... especally when used to show someone up!! I guess you have never asked a question before.

    and here was me thinking asking a question about the Royal Navy on a Royal Navy forum would be ok!!!
    Those press articles were easy to find seeing how I knewthe Edinburgh was down there and when she set off...
    I’m afraid you just highlight the downfall of most forums.Someone comes on and asks a question and you start to giggle at your keyboard.

    Kev,

    By age & by time at RR you are a "senior member" yourself but seem to have had a sense of humour failure somewhere along the line; remember 'banter' in the Andrew?

    I'm guessing that you have a genuine reason for inquiring but I don't know the answer; suggest try a PM to Soliel as she might be able to help.
