Fleet Expansion ?

#1
Is there something that the 1st SL or serving contributors to these forums are not telling us about an increase in vessels serving under the White Ensign. Is this a cunning plan to expnad our fleet of warships.

Spotted at Calcutt Marine on the Grand Union Canal near Leamington Spa Warwickshire, about as far as you can get from the sea, on Monday the 29th April 2007 at 10 am, the following.





So where did this van come from





Could get the crew of at least six vessels as found locally in that van. So here is a picture on my recent deployment to the canals of the Midlands.

As they are a Fleet Support Unit (genuine), maybe they've been asked to take on the support of craft on the canals of the Midlands?! :wink:

Yes t'is I the OD Swab at the helm. The Capt/Owner was taking the pic as he staggered about. I sold my boat to move to Spain. The boats a David Piper No. 296 that is why its nice.

There used to be one (maybe two) narrow boat(s) that “belonged†to FOSM, so maybe that’s why the van was there?

There used to be a small fleet of large scale models of RN ships on the canals....I think they were used for recuitment.....but it was a long time ago.
