As I was watching the news earlier this week, in which Alex Salmond was ranting about his Scottish Independence Referendum, I started to wonder what would happen to the Royal Navy if Scotland did become independent from the United Kingdom. There so much to think about, firstly the personnel. Would they still be eligible to join as part of the commonwealth? Then there is Faslane too what would become of it? I am very curious about this and obviously this is completely hypothetical as it is thankfully unlikely it will ever happen. I will be grateful for any help.
