    I think that the news report is pure fabrication. Just another way to stir up more anti Frenchicon feeling due to all the Brexit immigrant bull!

    If there is any kind of system to destroy the missile in flight; say for an accidental "Blue on Blue" launch; surely it would only be the launching vessel that could have the capacity to neutralise it.

    The Royal Navy paid a heavy price in the Falklands War; let us remember them with dignity and let them rest in peace!

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I had just made a model of the HMS Sheffield when she was sunk. It was a Fleetwood 1/1200 model.
