BZ Iron Duke, never mind the Wills bit and the utterly asinine Sun headline.

Damn, I read it as Prince William sneezes cocaine. :w00t:

At least there was no abiguity with my thread title.

Can I have a job in Navy News please?

Yeah, you can have my boss'. :thumright:

Evidently from all the media coverage, it was the prince who did the busting and Iron Duke just happened to be there... :cussing:

Had to laugh at one of the tabloids (can't find it now) describing how "a crack team" came down from the Lynx to capture the boat - good choice of words, or tongue in cheek ?

Generally nowadays any boarding involving rapid-roping is undertaken by the Royal Marines Commando detachment. Not sure if they were used in this particular episode, but if they were, they're normally rather good at it.

How did the ship function before windsor joined?

Windsor (with a capital "W") has not joined any ship. You are so far behind the times. Sub Lt Wales joined the Iron Duke. :thumright:

Enjoy your evening

I have to admit I am puzzled, I thought their surname was windsor so why is he called wales?Surname
By Order-in-Council in 1960, the non-titled descendants of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were given the surname Mountbatten-Windsor, combining the dynasty name of Elizabeth and the assumed surname of Philip. However, although titled, the Queen's children have all decided to use the surname also in honour of their father. For their banns for their first marriages, both William's aunt, Anne, Princess Royal and his own father, Charles, Prince of Wales, used Mountbatten-Windsor rather than Windsor. Mountbatten-Windsor is now treated as being the surname of all descendants of the Queen and the Duke except those, like the children of the Princess Royal, who have a new paternal surname (in that case, "Phillips").[25]

As with Royal Family tradition, Prince William used "Wales" as a last name during his years of education, as has Prince Harry. William's York cousins in turn use "York" (other Royal Families also use their parents' title as their own working surname). Past precedent, however, is that such title-surnames are dropped from usage in adulthood, with either title alone or name and Mountbatten-Windsor being used on legal documents and banns of marriage.

You Know fine well that although they might be surnamed Wales, they are in fact English. When you and your like minded fellows achieve independance please feel free to invite The Princess Royal has your head of state, she does seem to have a passion for Tarten etc etc.

Finky, your fixation on the ancestry of the Royal Family is getting boring, you as a Scot are probably descended from the Irish invaders of Caledonia from which Scotland gets it name, the majority in England are descended from Saxon, Angle, Jute and Norse invaders, so why not get over your xenophobia and accept that we live in a monarchy or emigrate to a socialist republic

As the old fella used to say to me, 'just remember lad when things are bad you could always have been born in England'.
