You may have read on the BBC that HMS Dauntless is being posted to the Falklands. There's always a warship there, the navy says, so it's no big deal.
You might not know that HMS Dauntless is affiliated with The City of Newcastle upon Tyne, Royal Grammar School Newcastle, Newcastle United Football Club, The Percy Headley Foundation in Forrest Hall and the Worshipful Company of Clothworkers.
At first I found these things a bit funny, but the more I think about them, the more I quite like them.
