Order - Counter Order - ***ing Disorder


While the QE idly swings around her anchor above the Forth Bridges, according to Sky - if you believe it - https://news.sky.com/story/sacked-ca...rrier-11726533

It might be just that he had to 'dramatically' attend a routine meeting ashore, but the fact remains that a miserable set of wheels provided for the Captain, to make his official life Ďa little less complicatedí seems to have lost him his job.

The Navy would be the first to claim and require that while he is Captain in Command, he is considered to be on duty 24 - 7 - 365, thus he has no unofficial life unless on formal leave with a designated relief.

I await the real truth with interest. The crew of the QE will probably be more interested in when they're going to get home leave.
