Anyway there is no need for all this firepower. The new threat is going to be cyber terrorism.

Gen dit.

Extra frigates though Grommit ideal for stopping planes attaking our ships !!

Cue:

"What ships ? .... I see no ships" (paraphrasing a well known Naval personality ;) )

as an afterthought, as this the 205th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar - do you think there some turning in the grave happenings ?? :)
 
Ah well seen it all before once there gone there gone !!! Wouldn't want to rely on the crabs for air defence if the shit hits the fan, mighty impression they made on me with their efforts in 82 couldn't hit a fcuking runway

No need for any wailing and gnashing of teeth as Cameron has stated that we will still be a military nation of the front rank.

I seem to remember out of about 14 bombs dropped from a great height on ly one hit the target, and hte Argies filled the hole in before the Vulcans got back to the Azores,
Mind you most of the crabs couldn't hit a splash target from 200ft so how do they expect them to hit a runway from 40000

Defence cuts mate, there are no lights, but we will certainly see that the candles are snubbed. 8O :D

There seems to be a dip in moral 8O

Scrub out for Captains Rounds prior to decommisioning :twisted:

That always used to baffle me, spend hours cleaning the boat, then once alongside Jan the dockie would trapse across lovely celan floors in dirty rotten boots !!
