Point taken marine..and to answer your questions..yes I have jumped both with the 82nd and 173rd airborne on manœuvres in Europe with brit airborne.. and served side by side with us marines in Beirut lebanon with the legion..perhaps you were a sprog then!.. no matter..and you are absolutely right about us marine F-35s bringing up to strength the strike group on her majesty’s ship queen Elizabeth.. I may be a Brit but there is also yankin me on my father’s side!.I love both countries dearly as well as France from my time in the legion..rather complicated wouldn’t you say!..anyway just a friendly wager marine..be well.I think the spanking was a very good spanking, I'll give you that one. But Marines are always evolving, lessons learned and taught well, my money is on the Marines. Did you ever train with Marines or US Army airborne in your time?
I hate to say this but I feel I have to. Her Majesty's largest ship is an Aircraft Carrier, a quite nice one, but the problem is it's the only one and they did without for about 10-years or so. The Carrier didn't even have any aircraft, they borrowed one from the....USMC, the Marine Version of the F-35, VSTOL. Seeing as the Carrier is designed for the F-35s or Harriers, I am glad we obliged Her Majesty's Navy.
