    Warship: Life at sea.

    Channel 5 is currently showing the above show.
    So far an excellent documentary. The makers embed with HMS Duncan during her deployment to the Med, and the Black sea.

    Worth a watch, if you can get channel 5.

    German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
    German 2: Private? I am a general!
    German 1: That is the bad news.

    "Join the crew of the most advanced warship in the world."

    So is this TV program actually about the JDS Maya or the USS Zumwalt?

    "Join the crew of the most advanced Brexiteer warship in the world."

    Fixed that for them.
    "He is an enemy officer taken in battle and entitled to fair treatment."
    "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

    It's a pity it's not on BBC or Channel 4. I can tune it into the Sky Box but can't record. Will have to wait until someone inevitably puts it up on Youtube!
