Adrian has deserted the sinking ship as RA FAA
We were concerned at the down-grading .
no more Adrian?
Strewth!
Fear not : we have HRH The Duke of York KG KCVO ADC(P) as our FAA Head
He is the Commodore-in-Chief --Fleet Air Arm.
Could we be in safer hands?
 
Well, Robbo isn't playing too well and has lost his place on the front line of late.
Also James is getting a bit old for the job (so I 'm told) so he might not be there either.
Not sure who is in line for the promotion myself, and thoughts on the matter Stalwart?

Anyone who has served at least three quarters of their pensionable service AT SEA. Are there any?
What on earth is the point of paying for a Royal Navy who. seldom if ever, sees the sea.? As a tax-payer I would like to know.
 
Yes but who is going to fill the gap?
Carson, Hart and even Green are all in the frame. Who would YOU choose out of those three?

Well I can testify - thanks to my current level of LSA - that I have spent most of my naval service on seagoing units. However the Navy is not a testament of its worthiness purely by the amount of time spent on the waves; there are many non-seagoing tasks that we do, especially supporting our Army/RAF colleagues in landlocked operations overseas.

But I am a taxpayer too; please tell me what contribution you have made to the Defence of the Realm?! 8O

Paying taxes for 60 odd years to support a non-sea-going navy for the most part. Why? If the Army Airforce and Navy are but one--Why do we have Admirals Generals and Air Chief Marshals being paid a small fortune for doing what?

Stalwart: Play the game. You asked a question and I answered. I asked a question and you diverted it. Can you for once be honest and answer me?

You should have realised by now that Norman only posts to provoke, not to inform or discuss.

Wouldn't worry too much about it mate, he hasn't answered my question either.
But then, I'm not sure he knows what (who) i'm talking about ;)
