HMS Queen Elizabeth.

With tweny letters and spaces in her cap tally few of our sea-sisters could have served aboard our new carrier. speaking fluent French or not.A cap size of at least ---
Seven and one Eighth is necessary to accommodate the name Mind you HMS Prince of Wales with but nineteen Letters and spaces would preclude all but the big-headed of our distaff maritime oppos.

Christ man you are throbbing so hard you're a one man noise short.
He could also be accused of stealing lyser amps.
You could always shut his head in a tunnel door to see how far the cap tally would go round.
Its not like there hasn't been a turd in the gash compactor, but one this big.
And it would interesting trying to eject him out the gash gun, probably be a 5 tube job.

Anyway, back to the thread.

Normong, you can't count. HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH has nineteen letters and spaces, the same as HMS PRINCE OF WALES, not the twenty you claimed. HMS QUEEN CHARLOTTE also had nineteen letters, and the inhabitants of Whale Island didn't seem to have a problem with cap tallies. TS QUEEN CHARLOTTE had only eighteen, yet the boys and girls in the Guildford Sea Cadets never seemed to have a problem either despite children having smaller heads than adults.


Or to precis: Wrong, wrong, and wrong.

A number of the 21 digit cap tallies were WW2 They would simply have worn HMS .

I note you have not addressed my points, merely sidestepped them. HMS QUEEN CHARLOTTE and TS QUEEN CHARLOTTE were both written in full on cap tallies which were worn without any problems caused by the length of the name. Also, you can't count.

Re: HMS Queen Elizabeth - longest ship's name

I get the feeling none of the above could count for the longest ship,s name since they are made up of more than one word. Can anyone better HMS NORTHUMBERLAND?
