MoD: "1SL Signs Naval Pact With Brazil"

Perhaps the Brazilian Navy will allow its poor relation, the RN, to scrub down its aircraft carrier now and again. According to the Pompey News, personnel on board the ill-fated Ark Royal are already showing willing by supporting Wagner in The X Factor.

(Wagner is Brazilian)

It didn't last long at all!

First was wearing a dodgy tie though.

Apologies for seeming to have given a duff link, guys - it was definitely active when I wrote my post.

It must have been moved later.

Agreed.

You'd have though Flags would've got him a decent one whilst the page was offline. :wink:

Definitely a "No Dad tie..."!

Just cant get the staff these days... or else DII wont allow access to Photoshop to "airbrush" it!
 
On a historical note:

In 1823, Admiral Thomas Cochrane, 10th Earl of Dundonald, led the Brazilian Navy to secure the country's independence from Portugal. He was also the first to command the Chilean Navy which has preserved tradition by naming one of its recently acquired Type 23 frigates Almirante Cochrane (ex-HMS Norfolk) in his honour. Cdre the Hon Michael Cochrane OBE RN, younger son of the fourth Baron, has continued the family tradition of serving in the Royal Navy.

Ironically, when a Commander, the Honourable Michael Cochrane commanded a Type 23 too - I remember "setting fire" to his engine room whilst working within FOST.

He must have loved you for that. Any idea if the statue of his forebear still stands outside what was the admin building at Cochrane in Rosyth? I used to read his biography on the accompanying plaque on my way to the wardroom and it was awe-inspiring.

...he also enjoyed taking said vessel for some close-in navigation training around certain parts of Scotland, and would draw the Bridge's attention towards some reference point on the Starboard beam:

"OOW, do you see that rocky headland about 5 cables there (points)?"

"Yes, Sir. I do. Should I take a fix?"

"No, don't bother - just wanted to tell you that I owned it..."

:salut: :wink:
