W Morning News: "Unexpected Arrival Of French Military Convoy"

Discussion in 'Bases / Shore Est' started by soleil, Nov 7, 2013.

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. "Motorists could have been forgiven for thinking the country had been invaded when they got stuck behind a convoy of 50 French military vehicles on Westcountry roads.

    However, they might have been even more disconcerted had they known that the 'invasion' occurred without our maritime defence force, the Royal Navy, even being aware of the French forces' arrival until the visiting military commanders contacted our police.

    The unexpected arrival of French military vehicles caught Plymouth police and the Royal Navy by surprise."

  2. Recalling my miserable time in Portsmouth's MT Branch, no military vehicle could set tyre on foreign soil without us going through diplomatic and host nation defence channels first. This has all the hallmarks of a procedural f**kup; either Frogside or, more probably, our side with PJHQ.
  3. I heard about this yesterday, must say it brightened my whole day :)
  4. The most informative part of all that froth is the bit explaining the history of Breton Side.

    I think Chris Maher should have concentrated on doing his homework.
