British Naval Tactics

Published:

This is the transcription  of the ACTUAL radio conversation between the British and the Irish off the  coast of Kerry, Ireland October  1998.

 

Radio conversation  released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-1998.

 

IRISH: Please divert your course 15  degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

 

BRITISH: Recommend you divert your  course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

 

IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15  degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

 

BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British Navy Ship. I  say again, divert YOUR course.

 

IRISH: Negative. I say again, you will have to divert  YOUR course.

 

BRITISH: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER HMS  BRITANNIA!  THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE BRITISH ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE  ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT  VESSELS.  DEMAND YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. I SAY AGAIN,  THAT IS 15 DEGREES NORTH OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE  SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

 

IRISH:  We are a  LIGHTHOUSE...It's Your  Call...
