OK SO WHO KNOWS THIS?
« on: February 21, 2010, 12:38:30 pm »

Just as an after thought to the Falklands thread! What was the only ship in the Royal navy to pipe "battle stations" as oppossed to "action atations"?

 Any takers? Paul... ;) :-)

The Conqueror sunk the Belgrano so it's a reasonable assumption.

In the RN, its almost always been action stations since day 1, the USN always use battle stations, but, it basically is the same thing, the point was Battleaxe was the only RN ship to use the term regularly.
