    No tears shed from me - I had four 42s and Nottingham was my worst.
     
  3. One more for the Turks to pick over, alas! we don't even have the facilities to break the poor things up.
     
  4. £40 million of repairs well spent there. That could have kept the Ark at sea for 3 more years. Excellent stuff RN.

    Could they not sink it properly this time. Create a reef for all the little fishes. Or a special combat underwater training center for the divers. All the guys & gals who served on it could lay a wreath once a year in memory of the good times.
     
  6. Naturally. As a born and bred Nottingham-ian I can tell you the town is shit and I can't wait to move away
     
  7. Before I joined up I ventured out of Cumbria once in search of adventure. I ended up living in Hyson Green. I soon went home.
     
  8. How did you venture out of Cumbria? I came here by accident 6 years ago and still can't find the way out.
     
  9. I had to fight my way through shap and was then smuggled to Kendal where I bought passage to the new world.
     
  10. Ahhh
    HMS Noshingham, renamed after one of it's captains fcked up
