Typical, the Navy lets a few Royals have a go in our boats & they start shooting at everyone. Ruffians!

Seriously though - an excellent bit of work by FPGRM Fleet Standby Rifle Troop.

Do frigates have yardarms? If so, put it to use on the others!

Back in Ninja's day they hung pirates.

hmm, interesting comments on the wired;

wtf - did the Poms not get a chance to surrender like they did in the Persian Gulf? English - the real surrender monkeys

@Scott
Are you freakin serious?!
You think killing a couple of dumb ass pirates deserves a chorus of 'Rule Britania'? It comes to something when people start to consider this as a major achievement for our navy.
The Navy is a crumbling relic of what it used to be, just like the rest of this terminally ruined country.

Jambo does have a point, although only from a comedy point of view as I live in a family with at least two Paras in it.
Anyone see the "RN/Commando survival kit" produced by a smart chap from 3 Para recently? Consists of a white flag, ipod, pen and paper to write your heart wrenching survival-in-captivity story and a list of big time PR people and publicists to sell said story to the media afterwards. Genius.

Cnuts.

It's a lot more brutal these days too.

The pirates quite often will just kill the crew, steal the paybox and set the ship adrift.

Dead men tell no tales.
