    Reviving the Battle class names would be great for Type 26 I think, but I doubt in this politically correct age we live in that the powers that be would allow the RN to name ships after battles where we got one over on our now allies on the continent. I'd doubt whether a new Trafalgar would even get signed off today sadly.

    Yes you are probably right,being completely non PC myself I didn't even think of that.

    Though in these limp wristed liberal times there are some names we could revive without fear of being branded un pc,if we were to get two more T45's we could again use the name Dainty and Delight.

    Even better until the 1960's we had twelve 'GAY' class fast patrol boats, including Gay Charger,Gay Archer.Gay Charioteer to name but three, I'm sure they would go down well on the lads and lassies cap tallies (NOT).

    As long as they're not named after politicians and no more towns/cities please. Tudor fleet had some brilliantnames: e.g. Golden Hind, Royal Sovereign and Mary Rose.

    You could do like us and name them after famous explorers. I'm sure you have a pretty long list of those.

    I agree, however... RN Survey ships are usually named after explorers. Not always - e.g. Enterprise, Echo.

    Should name a couple in honor of the communities that build the RN's ships. HMS Glasgow, HMS Portsmouth.

    I have a feeling that the March edition of 'Desider' may contain something of particular interest to us !
