HMS Lancaster Motto?

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by Grog_Rat, May 22, 2008.

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:

  1. Can anyone tell me the current HMS Lancasters Motto, Ive searched high and low.
     
  2. Hollands pies are BEST
     
  3. Chav Central rool, innit.

    (If in doubt, visit the Ridge or Ryelands estates in Lancaster.)

    Dont forget, Lancaster City Council brought you Mr Blobby and the Africar.


    No councillors or employees of Lancaster City Council had their pockets harmed whilst spending £4m of council tax payers money.
     
  4. Why not try the ship itself ?

    The first Lancaster was not a UK built warship.
    She was passed to Britain, by the US, under the 1940 Lend/Lease agreement, and therefore she would probably have not been given a Motto, alternatively the current Lancaster may have adopted the home town's, have you tried them ?

    :)

    edited to add: This was the first 'modern' warship - the first one was wooden, built in the late 1600s. So it is possible that the curent destroyer may carry the motto of the city of Lancaster ?
     
  5. 'Don't forget to feed the parrot'? in Latin of course
     
  6. Lancaster does not have a parrot anymore. And i cant for the life of me rember the motto.
     
  7. 'Psittacus ab Compasco' perhaps ?

    :)
     
  8. Probably because they did forget to feed it, in which case it's:

    'Psittacus Requiscat in Pace'

    :lol:
