Best Allies?

I am currently at Point Loma, Naval Base, San Diego for an Acquisition course. Gotta tell you I like the area, however, I don‘t think the food produced in the Galley was all that great.

Anyway, this morning I was having breakfast when I saw quite a sight. I recognized them from a mile away....that old uburban legend, wear a CDN flag on your backback so the locals will know you are not American :blotto: , anyway I guess it comes in handy sometimes! So, there is a CDN Navy LT and a LCDR (I am going by US abbreviations) and after they sit down next to me I ask, "so how are our best allies?) He answers back, "oh, the Brits, they aren‘t here!) :p I thought it was great, everyone around me did as well.

Sherwood that remind‘s my of a story about when the Royal Navy and the U.S. Navy were having a mid Atlantic Ex.

On contact the U.S. vessel signaled to the R.N. ship;How‘s the second largest Navy doing?
Retort was;How‘s the second best doing?

Aint sarcasim great!!
