do I feel some harsh word from the FO coming!
Not a peep on the FO website.

Makes you wonder if it's not journalism at its best.

Bog all happening so lets invent something or massage the truth to make a good story. Wouldn't put it past them.

No Way!

Not the morally upstanding, totally reliable source of the truth that is The Daily Mail? 8O

The old adage, "Never let the truth get in the way of a good dit", springs to mind :money:

'Truth' and 'story' was what I was thinking too but reasoned I'd already implied enough about the Mails journalistic machinations.

Two things.

They obviously knew they were in the wrong or wouldn't have moved off.

They probably got the idea to do it by reading RR. Most of the post here say we have no navy any longer and what we do have is crap and don't work.

Gib guard ship. We anchored once a week in some water called the loop which we said we owned and the Spaniards said was theirs. Out came some bloody big old Cruiser,guns lowered then bye bye...till next week.

Yea, remember her well...in the 60's we referred to her as 'Smokey Joe' as she made smoke that would have done the Battle of Jutland' proud.... :D

Just read the story and despite the nice pic of the 23 isn't is (particularly given the plural) just likely to have been SABRE and SCIMITAR?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Sabre_(P285)

Somehow (no disrespect to the crews thereof) not surprised to see the Mail fail to use pictures of two small patrol vessels when a frigate would do...sounds like a non-story to me.
