Hang that for a game of toy soldiers - HMS Sword Dance gets my vote.👍🏻

 

What would we have today I wonder......HMS Moshpit, HMS Dad Dance, HMS Always End Up In The Kitchen At Parties?

We can always rely on Procopius to bring a touch of classy erudition to our ramblings.

A long and glorious tradition of ship naming....

 

HMS Banterer, HMS Beaver, HMS Black Joke, HMS Camel, HMS Cockchafer, HMS Cheerful, HMS Flirt, HMS Heartease, HMS Spanker...

Don't forget to precede it with "So".

 

"What ship are you serving on lad/ladette?" "So, HMS, like, Belfast" or "So, like, HMS Belfast". Both may end with "you know" - or a grunt.

The way the armed forces are going these days one of the ships should be named HMS Diversity.

Isn’t diversity an old wooden ship? (Reference joke)
