Royal Navy

I was in a bar in Liverpool recently, and there were sailors from various countries in full uniform dress.
Some sort of naval convention or get-together was going on.
Most of the sailors had their ships name on an embroidered ribbon, around their hat.  In the same manner that the British Royal Navy does.
I asked one of the British matelots.......     
"Why do the  French sailors have their  ships name, hat ribbons   spelled out using the Greek alphabet letters."
His reply was " They'd look bloody silly with French letters around their hats."

    @snuffmiller             I would rather remember bottles of Kronenbourg 1664.

    1667 was a good year though for the Dutch and British.  Old allegiances die hard.



    Edit. I think    " alliances "  might have been a better choice of word. Cheers.


  • @Artchoo, That joke is about as sharp as they come. That cracked me up. Good word play these days is hard to find and delivered off the cuff too.   =))
