    Default Britannia rules?

    And a true story:

    The following is the transcription of the actual radio conversation between the British and the Irish off the coast of Kerry in October 1998.


    Irish: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    British: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

    Irish: Negative: You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    British: This is the Captain of a British Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.

    Irish: Negative: You will have to divert your course.

    British: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER H.M.S. BRITANNIA, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE BRITISH ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE TAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP!


    IRISH: WE ARE A LIGHTHOUSE ....... YOUR CALL ........

    Saw this in a defence journal a few years ago, Was literally (I believe this is true) radio comms traffic between USS Nimitz and the canadians. I guess the names where changed to protec the innocent.

    lol - that sounds familiar!! The Yanks changing facts to either protect themselves or make them look good.

    A certain film (U-571), all about the capturing of an Enigma machine from a German U-boat (which was done by the Royal Navy), but lo and behold in the film it's the Americans who are seen to do this!!!!
