Russian Destroyer

In Ayr Bay yesterday in connection with the Varyag memorial event.

Some of the crew were in full buying mode in Ayr's new shopping centre. One particularly mean-looking officer who carried a large briefcase grunted when I said "hello". A junior sailor smiled and nodded to me.

I didn't see any of them in the pub...

Don't think so, yet. Perhaps a petition to 10 Downing Street? I know there is a USS Winston S Churchill: 
Heath, whilst Prime Minister, can be credited with scrapping the plans to hand over the Falklands to Argentina, earlier begun by Harold Wilson:
