Yes the Big Grey Bush. I was on it when it was still so shiny new that nothing worked. Food sucked more than usual.

That's why I'm miffed about the QEs - they're proper fleet carriers. Not up to the scale of a Nimitz, but the largest warships we've ever built, and far more impressive than the Invincible-class escort carriers (which included the fifth Ark Royal).

There's been some talk of doing just that.


This would be good. The name should always be carried on the best the RN can provide.
