Post Thunder Child
For those of you who like Sci-Fi and rock music, here's a video of part of a live production of Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds (based on the HG Wells book). [Ignore the creepy disembodied head with Richard Burton's voice.]

Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds - Thunder Child

What does this have to do with navies you ask? The Thunder Child is a (fictional) Royal Navy ship.

I found this page: HMS Thunder Child vs. Martians

I think the diagram with the stats would make a fun T-shirt. :lol: Could have the Thunder Child on one side and the Martians on the other.

The ship even has a Wikipedia page! HMS Thunder Child

And...The Martian at Woking :mrgreen:
