    Wonder when we will hear more about the proposed EPV / MRV / Hospital ship / Eithne's replacement ?
    "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."

    How long would the Shaw be expected to take on trials? I honestly can't remember how long the others took.

    Vessel exceeded 25 knots during trials today. All appears to be going as planned.

    She will go back alongside Appledore after these ones.

    Delivery early August id imagine

    Or you could just 'pressgang' the dock yard workers and sail home ......to offset recruiting shortages.

    From the photos another fine looking vessel even without her turret up front.
    Time for another break I think......

    According to ais, p64 reached speeds of 38.5 knots yesterday pm during short burst high speed trials?? 28.5 i could believe as p62 achieved near enough that when her vibration problems were sorted out.

    That seems "unlikely", it's well beyond her design speed isn't it?

    I'm putting it down to either an error on AIS or else you are looking at the track of one of her Rhibs, which seem to be hovering around Ilfracombe. (P64A MMSI 111111642).

    George Bernard Shaw is MMSI 250004884 and is doing laps of Lundy.

    I'm not sure if one of these would suit it


    But if you mean the 76mm. I believe it has been said it will be installed after delivery.

    Well, government doesn't stop just because the country's been destroyed! I mean, annihilation's bad enough without anarchy to make things even worse!

    I dunno.The big white Bird might be appropriate.Albatrosses and all that. But Yeah It was the 76 I was on about.Unusual that all her sister ships had them fitted prior to delivery.

    Well given the difference in the contracts, ie Shaw not being planned could that be a factor?
