I am sorry to say that once again a professional service is being made to look rather foolish at times by the media. I have absolutely nothing against the RN, you do a great job, however why is it that it does just not look right.
Could it be that they have been very good at picking the subjects, not very bright are they, espcially the Matron, telling her girls not to look at the dead body's face, girlies crying. Get a bloody grip.
As for sailors who are late for a parade, saying they are late back from shore leave, we call that AWOL, f****** ball them out, instead of letting them just slope in at a snails pace.
Obviously I will keep on watching as any documentary about the Armed Forces is father better viewing than the other crap they put on the box these days.
Well thats the modern RN for you , i suspect that the answer you will recieve from the guys/gels serving now is and i quote "we saved two ships from sinking and we wont lose a war cos we bimble in late for a muster or late from leave", :wink: i think i will put me flak jacket on and maybe some anti flash, 8)
