Default Coast Guard to the Rescue!

Royal Navy so short of personnel it borrows engineers from US Coast Guard | Daily Mail Online

When I joined the Coast Guard, I was told that the Coast Guard was the hard nucleus about which the Navy forms in time of war. Given this article, I guess the Royal Navy is now using us for the same purpose! <laughing>

Semper Paratus!

Being a good Army brat, I happily looked down on the other branches of service except Coasties. They've always held my admiration!

How come they're known as 6 foot sailors?
