    That has to be one of the oldest stories floating around in the Navy, but it's still a classic! :lol:

    A classic. I have seen it before, and it's still funny.

    Has to be a joke. The Irish don't really have a navy do they?

    the irish navy is made up of a complex system of lighthouses, each cunningly placed to assure no ship can get close to the mainland, when a ship is located in the powerfull searchlight, men in rowboats come out to the attacking ship and plant an irishman on board, thus making all the crew throw themselves overboard.......

    Or in the case of submarines, an Irish sailor is infiltrated onboard and sinks the enemy sub "because he likes to sleep with the windows open"

    Very funny stuff. But the British lads might laugh about the Royal navy ship that struck a land mass they did not know was there .The land mass turned out to be Australia. Its funny cause its true.
    The Irish navy has only eight modern ships ,and their navagational skills are better than at least some of the royal navy officers. Plus the first pratical sub ever made was built by an Irishman called Holland.The British navy bought six.
