This is the Navy son. We don't have tail draggers, and we don't do 3 point landings.

French Navy test that the reverse gear fitted to their new carrier is sufficiently powerful to uphold their traditions.

My Captions would have been either

To be a great Anti Submarine Warfare Carrier you would have to think like a Submarine

or

When the Apollo 11 Command Module was winched onboard the Captain of USS Hornet was surprised at the amount of Moon Rock they brought back

Right off to have a wine and look through the offerings

A lot of Great Captions, ( makes the judging harder) and I must commend
Big Pistons with MOD announced a short delay for the Sea Trials of HMS Queen Elizabeth in order to resolve some minor stability issues
Nutty with "Ok Chief, get the working party forward, you should be able to repaint the plimsoll line now."
Buster with Talk to me Goose.*gurgle gurgle gurgle*
Wensleydale with the old favourite "Doctor - I think that I've got Hermes".
"Don't you mean Herpes?"
"No - I think I'm a carrier".
Supper with "Whoa there laddie... easy on the power until you can actually see the water-skiers standing upright!"

But the winner and latest holder is Penny with
The carrier deck is actually parallel with the horizon. Could it be that the sea is on the slant?

Over to you

Humble thanks, Kiltrash. Now, talking of kilts . . . . . though I fear this may bring out the worst in some of you.

I've tried and failed to attach the picture, so I will try and put it up separately.
