Right so this is a joint Army/ Royal Air Force mock attack on the Prince of Wales Carrier to test it's defensive capabilities.
Sir but it's been tied up in port at Portsmouth for 12 Months so how is that fair?
You want War to be fair??

"Perhaps if instead of pointing, you could hold these two maps in your left hand, and these two in your right, and I do the same with these four maps, and the wind would stop blowing, I might be able to find my way."

RAF Wittering? No, this is Grantham Barracks, you're about 20 miles north. Er, before you go, the Colonel would like a word; it seems he had dozed off just before you arrived - with a hot cup of tea balanced in his lap...

Having lost to the car in the Race to the North in the Tornado, Clarkson has asked can you pick him up at King's Cross and drop him off at the North British. Determined not to lose again

The Sex Shop on the A1 just outside Wittering? Yes it's just over there...but why?
It's for the Squadron Leader. Something about shoving it up Hoskins ar$e after his last landing
