"The sailors are proud of the task they received": the British Navy told about the tracking of the Russian Navy submarine

65

"All our sailors are proud of the mission that was received from the command." This statement was made by the commander of the British warship Mercey, William Edward Bannon, who bears the rank of lieutenant commander. This statement is connected with the fact that the patrol ship P283 Mercey of the Royal British Navy was sent to escort the Russian submarine, which was passing through the English Channel at that time.


According to British press reports, the patrol crew received a command from the command "to monitor the Russian diesel-electric submarine."

William Edward-Bannon:

We have completed the task, ensuring the protection of our national interests. The tracking of the Russian submarine was the culmination of a series of patrols we conducted.

It turned out that we are talking about the transition of the diesel-electric submarine "Rostov-on-Don", which is part of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean. At the same time, the submarine was not going to hide from anyone while passing the English Channel. In this regard, the statements that the "tracking" command was carried out, and even became a source of pride for the sailors of the British warship, look very strange.

Lieutenant Commander of the British Navy:

You never know what might await you on patrol. But we have an amazing team, every sailor can always rely on.

Noteworthy is the fact that the British command sent the same ship Mercey to "track" the diesel-electric submarine "Rostov-on-Don", when the submarine in the fall of 2020 followed from the Mediterranean Sea to the Baltic through the English Channel.

    Our boat in Above-water POSITION drifted past Naglosaxia and they MUCHLY tracked it?
    It is necessary to reward the sacred with the highest and thickest orders, presented directly from the hands of the queen!

      Well, just like children. They are proud to have watched our submarine sailing on the surface. Have they already been given medals for this?
      . The British press reports say that the patrol crew received the command from the command "to monitor the Russian diesel-electric submarine."

      William Edward-Bannon:

        And if she dived? Dieselukh. What would you do something?
        Remember how our nuclear submarine surfaced in the middle of a warrant fulfilling the search for a submarine in order to transfer our sick sailor!
        And then she dived. And that's it!
        Dissolved!

          Like a team of buggers.

          Earlier, in childhood, we were taught the Russian language. We have read the classics of Russian and foreign literature.
          They talked about the team differently. And even more so, in other words, the classics wrote about a close-knit team.

          No one offered to rely on every sailor.

          Tolley Englishmen are downs.

      In my time, the "carriers" began to accompany (follow) the norgs, then the Angles, then the Franks, then the Caballeros ... They passed it on like a baton ... And in Mediterranean itals / Franks or Ames were already clung to.
      But about the boats, diesel ones, it is difficult to say something definite: either they disappear and look for them in chorus, then they interfere with the release of the angles of the KRBD in Syria ... , and he could not tear himself away from the diesel! Therefore, I did not complete the task .... but the insidious Russians are to blame!

      They had even better victories -
      On the evening of October 1940, XNUMX, the British submarine Triton was near the Italian port of Savona. The new commander of the boat, Lieutenant Watkins, carefully examined the coast through the periscope, admiring the surroundings.
      But he was interested not only in the beauty of the Italian coast. He hoped to profit from some prey here. Two days earlier, Watkins had opened his own account by sinking an Italian ship, and was now eager for new victories.
      Soon the Englishman noticed a steamer with a large chimney at anchor.
      From a distance of 4000 meters, the submarine fired two torpedoes. The commander watched with pleasure as one of his steel "cigars" hit the target. But this seemed to him not enough. He ordered to surface and prepare the deck gun for firing.
      Of course, it was arrogance. The port was defended by coastal batteries, but the British were not embarrassed. The Triton surfaced and began firing at the torpedo ship. The submarine's gun fired eighteen rounds. Considering that the Italian steamer now received a sufficient supply of British steel, Watkins ordered the fire to be transferred to a large factory. And now the gunners began to fire at her.
      Ten days later, Watkins brought his submarine to Malta. In the report, he indicated that on this campaign he launched two ships to the bottom, one of which he sank right in the Italian port.
      The Italians would be very happy if they knew about Watkins' report. It turned out that the ship allegedly destroyed by the Triton in the port of Savona was in fact a pumping station! It was her pipe that the British took for the pipe of a steamer.
      So the submarine "Triton" went down in the history of the war as a submarine that torpedoed the pumping station.

    "All our sailors are proud of the mission that was received from the command"
    Well, finally, the British sailors got a feeling of "pride" - tracking a Russian submarine on the surface passing the strait and warning about it in advance. Probably from the absence of this feeling, English sailors (including submariners) came to service in an indecent state, and during their service they used drugs? After such a "feat" the queen is simply obliged to personally reward the entire courageous crew of the ship, and Elton John personally lay down an ode and sing it.
