Honest John: "Land Rover Announces Affiliation With Royal Navy Type 45 Destroyer"


War Hero
I particularly like the one on the right, looks very smart.

Hmmmmm ....

I wonder whether there is scope for naming the next ship to be commissioned HMS Lotus ..... one of those would make a nice little runabout.

All county class destroyers had a defender on permanent loan, it went where the ship went. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think some Leanders had a mini van.

On the Old Ark we had a minibus painted red with HMS Ark Royal. The Pantomime Sqn were lent a Rolls Royce, which some enterprising pilot managed to turn over

I was in Illustrious when the press kicked up abit of stink about the ship receiving a top of the range land rover prior to our 2006 trip out to India which included photos of it getting craned onboard prior to us sailing from Portsmouth.

The old Bulwark (R08 ) had a landrover and a tilly which went everywhere with the ship.

Lusty had a very nice Jaguar on board in 98 I think. Nice until some girl on 801 Sqdn untied a lashing and dropped a bomb carrier onto the roof.

(year could be wrong, old age and all)
