Southern Echo: "HMS Dragon Sanctioned To Track Russian Vessel Off Scottish Waters"

Discussion in 'The Fleet' started by soleil, Apr 24, 2014.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. An extraordinary article. It actually reads:

    "The MoD sanctioned HMS Warrior, the Royal Navy's fleet-ready escort, to meet up with the Vice Admiral Kulakov, which is transiting past the UK.

    A spokesman for the MoD said the vessel was deployed last week.

    HMS Warrior left its permanent base in Portsmouth dockyard to keep an eye on the ship to waters off Scotland."

    If HMS Warrior is indeed the RN's fleet-ready escort and currently deployed to keep an eye on Russian ships, things have indeed reached a parlous state ........

    He's a 'Senior Reporter' as well.

  2. Oh dear. I suspect the new Captain of HMS Warrior will be ever so shocked to find out that he's been mobilised so soon after leaving the Royal Navy. :)

  6. To be fair, give it a few years and this article will probaly be valid.
