For some time the Sydney Daily Telegraph has published many stupid faux pas ; not just misprints but misleading cock ups which beggar belief.
Yesterday we had a classic, not just one mistake but on several parts of its history write up, the British warship the battle cruiser HMS Hood was referred to as HMAS Hood.. To mention it several times is pretty stupid, and one might ask 'Who edits this stuff?- probably one of their bonehead Thugby league sports writers whom of which use 25% of the paper for their pics of ugly tattooed gaping overweight mutton heads, their nonsensical write ups bore most people to tears.
Going back many years A ship which I had served in was often given the header HMAS when it should be HMS.
We had Channel Seven A few months back running this story about twenty or so Aus and foreign Warships visiting Sydney Harbour these were repeatedly described as battle ships by bone heads at Channel Seven and together with a statement that it was the largest fleet to assemble here in a hundred years (WRONG) the Brit Pacific Fleet consisted of hundreds of ships during 1944-46.
Australia Expects ETC that every convict will do his duty, Hmm! I suppose if they published the story about Lord Nelson being born in Parramatta and commanded the HMAS Dubbo at the battle of broken hill in 17 91 , it would go unnoticed
Must not forget this because I read the Monetary news whenever I am able and I find it very distressing to read when on occasions the wrong figures are printed in the exchange rate columns, This has happened far too often and for people like myself who rely on a return on foreign income in part it can be frightening when you see the Euro and Pom pound reversing their figures.
It was quite chilly last night, however, on waking at 5,30 for a trip to the loo I noticed it had become warmer, on rising at ten thirty I asked er in doors "must have rained last night eh . Her reply was "yes it did ; how did you know" " dunno ! I just know.".
Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and let your whole life be Revelation.
BTW. All Naval ships are classified as Warships, and each class of Boat, Submarine or Ship has its own particular type For example, Battleship, Battle Cruiser, Aircraft Carrier, Cruiser., Destroyer, Frigate, Mine sweeper, The list goes on but you get the picture. Unless you work for Channel Seven or the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
