An interesting fact is that a single Nimitz class carrier can hold 89 planes ,the number of harriers in the whole of the RAF is 77, so all we need is one or two big carriers and give them to the RAF, but then they can't fly ships can they?
....but the RN didn't do itself any favours either by taking out the missile system of the current carriers so it could fit more planes, thus leaving it a sitting target. I suppose that gave it an excuse to buy more destroyers/frigates to protect them.
Anway matelots can drink more than the crab fats!
Surely all they have to do is keep jumping, the resulting vibration/movement would gradually move the gold back!
...and if the coach fell down the cliff I suggest they use the same approach but just before impact, not forgetting to duck when the gold rockets to the front of the coach.
Brilliant idea seeing as the Gov sold all our old warships to India anyway!
Being ex-RN (Pinkie/Greenie) I was on standby to board some ships in the Gulf (Back in the good old days when we had ships), until some Yank decided they should go instead.
Infact the sailors managed to do the boardings for years until the "Iran Incident" without any/much involment fromt those hairy arsed Booties (slang for Royal Marines), but then back in my day the sailors were "proper" sailors, and didn't have standard issue iPods, to give away.
