As expected a poor response as well as being one that illustrates little understanding of the makeup of the union flag.

Your straw clutching is wondrous to behold, to make it easy for you just look at any map of the UK remembering to look at it the right way up, then look up the meaning of the words above and below, hopefully it should then become clear to you that Bonnie Scotland sits atop England, if you fail to get it then I will make myself available for more tuition.

Scotland (Gaelic: Alba) is a country that occupies the northern third of the island of Great Britain. It is part of the United Kingdom,[and shares a land border to the south with England.

Thank you for doing a grand job of substantiating my views on the issue. Best retire gracefully before you dig yourself into an even deeper hole, I won't hold it against you.
 
Anyway, back to HRH the Prince William. From last Thursday's Truth Central ( http://defenceintranet.diiweb.r.mil...illiamHelpsOutInCaribbeanDisasterExercise.htm for those with);

Prince William helps out in Caribbean disaster exercise

Prince William has embarked on the second phase of his training with the Royal Navy onboard the frigate HMS Iron Duke where he has been working with the local authorities of the British Dependent Territory Montserrat in an exercise that tested the island's ability to cope with a major natural disaster such as a serious hurricane.

Iron Duke trained specifically for this role in the UK before she deployed and this latest exercise allowed all onboard to test their training in a realistic and demanding environment, particularly important with the hurricane season in the Caribbean just around the corner.

Prince William, known to those onboard Iron Duke as Sub Lieutenant William Wales, joined a number of the ship's company as they formed teams to work with the local Montserrat authorities. The scenario assumed that a category five hurricane had hit Montserrat causing the collapse of the volcanic dome which sits atop the island's active Soufriere Hills volcano.

Iron Duke's captain, Commander Mark Newland, believes the exercise was a good opportunity to show the "broad range of skills a Royal Navy warship can bring to a disaster-ravaged island", adding that he believes Sub Lt Wales was a natural leader:

"Sub Lieutenant Wales, as part of his remit on board, has been involved in the planning from the outset, and that's primarily in developing a plan and understanding of the nature of the infrastructure on Montserrat. With Sub Lieutenant Wales, it's reasonably easy - what you have is an army officer who understands a military context.
"He understands instinctively the business of command and where his teams fit in there. What I have seen is his ability to integrate very quickly into teams, whether it be at the command level or the very low tactical level. Being sent away with a small group to lead and conduct a particular task - that, to him, is second nature."

Sub Lieutenant Wales, an officer in the Household Cavalry regiment, is halfway through a five-week stint on board HMS Iron Duke as part of a Royal Navy placement. For Cdr Newland the exercise was an opportunity for everybody onboard to rehearse for what is one of the ship's core tasks:

"Support to Caribbean Overseas Territories is a cornerstone of UK defence policy," he explained. "With two visits scheduled over the course of our deployment, we will be able to provide the island with an understanding of the capabilities of a Royal Navy warship on operations in this region, alongside increasing our own awareness of the infrastructure ashore in the event of a natural disaster.

"My ship's company were called ashore to provide assistance to the local community in a number of scenarios. This included first aid teams to deal with casualties after a [simulated] bus crash; Royal Navy sailors also rescued trapped personnel and conducted engineering surveys of defective communications aerials.

"All in all a great opportunity for me to show the broad range of skills a Royal Navy warship can bring to a disaster-ravaged island," Commander Newland added.

Montserrat is particularly vulnerable because of the fragile state of the Soufriere Hills volcano. Both the ship and local defence forces on the island started planning for the exercise around a week before; this is regarded as realistic in terms of the likely warning of a hurricane approaching.

This is getting ridiculous. We've been doing DISTEXs since at least 1959 (in Portlandia) and presumably before that, Greek earthquakes etc etc. Trying to spin it to pretend that Prince W adds value is really a bit rich but I'm sure he is getting value from watching the Navy at work and this may pay off for us in the far future. With a bit of luck the Life Guards will seem terribly boring after this.

Meanwhile I hope he is able also to enjoy the real role of the Windies Guardship:

Ummmm. Has Jack been partying hard below decks. His eyes are wide open as he reluctantly hands over the large bag of marching powder.
He's still got his Altern 8 Hardcore ravers white gloves and mask on.must be a rave on the flight deck.

Why are they storing bales of rags when there is a load of drugs to shift? Maybe they spilt some.
