The following is the transcript of an actual radio conversation in
October 1995, between a US Navy ship and The British authorities,
off the Scottish North coast. The transcript was released by the
MoD on 10/10/95.

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

U.S. NAVY : Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

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

U.S. NAVY: This is the Captain of US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

BRITISH: Negative. I say again. You will have to divert your course.

U.S. NAVY: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES' ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH. THAT'S 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

..... After a short silence




BRITISH: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

made me smile...

It sounds like the sort of thing the Yanks would do, true or not, doesn't really matter.

I mean, when did you ever hear of the Yanks getting hit by " friendly fire "??

You certainly wouldn't want them as your enemy if that is how they treat their friends...:giggle:
