    When HMS Bacchante left the NATO fleet, there was a celebratory sail past. Other Navies decorously lined the side, whilst we Brits broke open the spud locker and hurled potatoes. For 3 of the ships we saved a special treat - we fired loo rolls out of the A/S mortar. Those are the debris in the air.
