OK Brian, you win! I've added the list to the downloads section

I have taken the liberty of editing it a bit so it is sorted by number for ease of reference.

This is very sad - but we have got nearly 1/2 millions tonnes worth of ships!

Off to buy a new coat for the winter

Whats even sadder is that you will have to look a long way back in time to find when we last had such a low tonnage of war ships or numbers or vsls.
But look at the rest of the forces - watch out Captain Manering and Cpl Jones

Aparantly the Fench now have more warships than we do.
If the Spanish fleet starts to increase too, I will pop down to Plymouth and try and find out where we left Sir Francis Drake!

Brian,

Make that at least 36 fellow anaraks then...

I can't believe we have an HMS Quorn - fancing naming a ship after a vegitarian food!!

Quorn

Actually named after a very smart Foxhounds Pack http://www.quornhunt.co.uk/index.php3

and if Tony Blair and his cronies have their way there will be even less naval tonnage and no hunts to name the ships after . (this will start a storm I have no doubt)

You know what you have to do come the next election .

Hunting ban - Shooting ban - fishing ban -
Next it will be rib ban!

Just think of all the poor little plankton that get chewed up by those ferocious props!
Sick of it all
