    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 !

    Happy,
    I hope you don't mind me posting the following link.
    In light of no formal information as of yet from BAE as to design of T26,this article is IMO very interesting and might? Hopefully give us some pointers as to what they have come up with. There is a very short cdg vid around 1.15s which if you pause will show that this design is completely different to what we have been shown in the past.
