Just browsing through You Tube, I came across the last running of the Field Gun Competition.
I went with my parents in the mid 70s, and of course shouted for Devonport.
But watching the 1999 last run, with all the matelots wearing black armbands, and the roar of the crowd. Made me wonder, why can the Royal Tournament (at least), be brought back. It would take a tiny percentage of the money squandered by MoD, to resurrect this great tradition, and positively influence the intake of recruits.
The RN I read is in danger of falling behind Italy in fleet size. Sell off the Prince of Wales (and the carrier), and resurrect the RN. Or UK will become a part of the EU, whether it likes it or not.
