Clang!

Post by gordon-in-aberdeen »

I've not long heard on the radio up here that HMS Astute has run aground near the isle of sky bridge :doh:
Quote from a local who woke up to find her not far from him this morning was " I don't know why the took her in there, i wouldn't take my yacht in there" :hide:

The most advanced and sophisticated warship on the planet and somebody goes and sticks it on some rocks.
Court-martials ensue.

Perhaps they are doing an insurance job to make up the shortfall in the Navy's budget cut ;)

Well I have no idea what really happened, but lords, the RN's had a bad enough week, come on guys take more care!

Here's hoping that it was a 'tech' issue and not more like the HMS Trafalgar incident

Kind regards
