    Has to be my first time seeing a SIGINT/ELINT ship on a courtesy visit.
    Well, there's good news and bad news. The bad news is that Neil will be taking over both branches, and some of you will lose your jobs. Those of you who are kept on will have to relocate to Swindon, if you wanna stay. I know, gutting. On a more positive note, the good news is, I've been promoted, so... every cloud. You're still thinking about the bad news aren't you?

    One can never be prepared for Cobh.

    This visit was part of the centenary celebrations of the first US Naval base in Cobh. In 1917 a number of units were stationed in County Cork following the US entry into the 1st World War. Earlier in the week crew from the ship visited the Former Naval HQ in the town, now part of a Nuns Retirement home, but still commanding an excellent view of the harbour.

    Yep, the Cobh Garda arrested 1/2 last night and from what I've heard they've already been returned to the US.

    To the indo everyone in the navy is an officer. The Journal only says he is a sailor.
