Just FYI, it's ALWAYS the Royal Navy, not the British Navy. There are other Royal Navies (Royal Australian Navy, Royal Netherlands Navy, etc.) but only one Royal Navy - simply because the RN was always so much more powerful than any of the others.

Sorry - wasn't clear - what I was saying is that there is no such thing as the British Navy, it is ALWAYS known as the Royal Navy.

Speaking about the ROYAL NAVY............talk about mothballing.....

Exclusive: Cash strapped Navy cuts destroyer fleet
The Royal Navy has mothballed almost half of its remaining fleet of destroyers as it desperately attempts to save money in the face of a plunging budget.

HMS Southampton: Pressures on the Navy's budget are immense with cuts of 20 per cent predicted in the next decade Photo: PA
The Fleet now has just five air defence warships left to protect vessels missile or aircraft attack at a time when other nations such as China, India and Iran are investing heavily in anti-ship warfare.
Three Type 42 destroyers Exeter, Nottingham and Southampton have been "parked up" in Portsmouth at "reduced readiness" up to two years before they were due to be decommissioned.
Falklands War veterans are particularly angry after Exeter, the last serving operational ship from the campaign in which it shot down several Argentine fighters, was refused permission to fly a paying-off pennant when it entered harbour after its last mission.
Britain's force of destroyers and frigates has now been reduced from 35 to 22 in the last decade despite government promises it would not slip below 25.
It will be another two years before the first of six of the highly sophisticated Type 45 destroyers can be deployed on operations leaving a "gaping hole" in defences.
Pressures on the Navy's budget are immense with cuts of 20 per cent predicted in the next decade reducing the ship building budget to by 4 billion to 14 billion.
Senior Navy commanders have told The Daily Telegraph that the nation is taking "serious risks" in protecting carrier groups or amphibious flotillas and have accused the Government of neglecting the Fleet that protects the 90 per cent of Britain's imported trade.
It has already ditched the excellent air protection offered by Sea Harriers which were disbanded two years ago and at least two Type 42s have gone on operations with their advanced Sea Dart air defence missiles disabled to save cash.
Liam Fox, the shadow defence secretary, said the Government was attempting to "castrate the Navy" by tying up ships in dock.
"This is an unacceptable price to pay for the Government's failure to plan properly at a time when we facing increasing demands to intercept drugs, arms, people smuggling, pirates as well as conduct operations in Iraq and Afghanistan."
