Investment for the navy - HMS Raleigh

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by Drakey, Mar 4, 2011.

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. Good news for HMS Raleigh.

    (Beat Soleil to it for once)
     
  2. Wonder who will be the first couple to have a jump on the new RAS RIG?
     
  3. I saw this in the news and my immediate thought was...they've already got one...why do want another? Bit cynical maybe...but there's alot of jobs being lost at the moment - and I'm not sure how having a new rig will encourage an increase in numbers being trained etc. I can see the point that it helps to anchor Raleigh (see what I did there?) as 'current' and therefore usable instead of being cast aside (or overboard) but as previously pointed out, this rig already exists albeit it's a bit dated.
