    Default Her Majesty the Queen.

    It is with great sadness that on behalf of the Admiralty Board I have to report the news that Her Majesty died earlier today. I am sure that all shipmates will join with the Admiralty Board in sending condolences to the Royal Family and King Charles the Third on this very sad occassion.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    With sadness, I , like a number of others here and on the Wings forum, served in HM forces, I swore my allegiance to her and served for 24 years, she served us longer. RIP ma’am

    With imho a total lack of privacy and respect, the media here had wall to wall and tear by tear coverage on all TV channels yesterday for just about the entire day. (they did stop for the Aussie Rules football semi final 7pm to 10pm). Now i can see some headlines about is this the end of the monarchy etc. Is it the same in other Commonwealth countries?

    Please do not let this thread develop into a domestic political issue. That would be a lack of respect.

    Sorry, no disrespect intended. I was just ranting against some of the media coverage. She was a great Queen and is missed.

    No worries Gary. I was just heading off the thread diverting onto politics about sovereignty.
