ah yes but there again the Eagle did actually work - it could and sometimes did do things. THAT carrier, the biggest warship we've ever built as they keep telling us is useless - a carriers armament is its aeroplanes, the Queen Elizabeth (boring name) hasn't got any, nor will she have any until 2020 I believe, rather a waste of time and money! When they finally get a couple of squadrons onboard (if it hasn't sunk or been scrapped by then) you'll be getting close to have a couple of thousand onboard if not more!

Its better than no carrier at all.What worries me is the modern day matelo,all look a bit too sober to me.

Aye Pete, to busy keeping fit it seems! Heck in our day as long as you were fit enough to get down the gangway to go on a run ashore that was enough!
