No need for any salutes, beyond the two fingered one already proffered. Always an interesting way to garner public support.I salute you Ninja_Stoker, I was advised that this was the wrong forum and seems so!
Valid question, but surely the point was that this caught the imagination of many, and gave a lot of people a chuckle. And as the article said, the ship's remotely-operated submersible vehicle will be named Boaty McBoatface - so the humour should hopefully continue as long as the research ship operates. Not a bad compromise?
