QE Captain Un-sacked


According to the Telegraph etc. today, May 21st. Captain Cooke-Priest had to be unsacked, because the Navy has no-one else available to drive the boat back to Pompey from Rosyth.

Tuesday night, May 21st, HMS Queen Elizabeth is anchored above the Forth bridges with Tug Hopetoun in attendance. Perhaps waiting for her escort, or the tide – low 11pm. Next high – 5 am Wednesday. Destination showing as Portland.

Presumably, on completion of the voyage, he will have to be re-sacked, unless his new Sub Lieut Boss has developed a more sensible idea.
