Subject: The Lighthouse


The following is the transcript of an actual radio conversation in 
October
1995, between a US Navy ship and The British authorities, off the 
Scottish
North coast. The transcript was released by the MoD on  10/10/95.

BRITISH : Please divert your  course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid
a
collision.

U.S. NAVY : Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to  the North
to
avoid a collision.

BRITISH  : Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to
the
South to avoid  a collision.

U.S. NAVY : This is the  Captain of US Navy ship. I say again, divert
YOUR
course.

BRITISH : Negative. I say again. You will have to divert  your course.

U.S. NAVY : THIS IS THE  AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN. THE SECOND
LARGEST
SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES'  ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE
DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND  NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. DEMAND THAT
YOU
CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES  NORTH. THAT'S 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR
COUNTER
MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO  ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

BRITISH : We are a lighthouse. Now f*** off.
U.S.NAVY :  head banging head banging
