Too far to travel
WITH reference to Tom Prichard's letter on the airport putting a downside to naval personnel etc., in our dockyard and the proposed new T26 frigates being based at Plymouth, if memory serves the lack of convenience Plymouth has to London was a main reason why we started losing surface ships to Portsmouth, as the brass didn't like the travel time involved in getting to our ships.
So whether or not Viable gets the go-ahead, it seems it will have no effect on the mindset of naval top brass even if Devonport is a far better base. These men will not be inconvenienced with the time spent in travel here. It all points to faster and better links in travel, though. It appears that Viable and the airport could improve the situation for all of us, Navy ships or not.
