The Lighter Side

Welcome to The Lighter Side, every now and then we run across some really funny stuff that needs to be shared. It could be a video, a cartoon, or just a funny story. Life may not always turn out the way we want, but while we’re here we might as well dance!! We are currently constructing an entertainment zone befitting a Delta Marine. Please stop in again real soon. Oorah!

Got to Love the British!!!

 

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

 BRITISH:

Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid 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. I 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.

BRITISH:

We are a lighthouse.
