Don't you just love the press.

And to think there will be people out there thinking we have a super carrier!!!!!

No wonder this countries [email protected]! Between the governments misinformation and the press's misinterpretation!

How many times have we seen the news a naval helicopter rescues - to be shown a crab yellow peril! They should sack all there researchers and employ matelots.

The media is terrible at all things military - examples (off the top of my head):

- referring to marines as soldiers
- not recognising the rank/rate of servicepeople when referring to them
- referring to POs and CPOs as Officers

... and there are probably a lot more.

With Marines, technically they are soldiers, albeit sea soldiers (try saying that after a pint!) but yep, the press often think they are in the Army because they wear green.

At AFCO level, you will frequently see Royals wearing green poloshirts & CS95 trousers with "Royal Marines Commando" in hoofing-big letters on the back (for the hard of hearing) to differentiate from their Army colleagues. Likewise, now that sailors no longer wear white fronts in AFCOs, they sometimes wear navy blue polo shirts with Royal Navy in big letters on the back to stop them being confused with bus drivers.

A picture editor at the Pompey News once almost put in a photograph captioned "HMS Bismark" [sic] :wtf: Luckily, I caught that one before it appeared in the paper... :whew:

He'd have got away with it in Pompey, I reckon.

Even worse, Waspie, when pics and news of an FAA helo rescue are ascribed to the Crabs.

All this hardly matters when you factor in that most of the public don't care squat about us anyway.
