    This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation of a British Naval ship and the Irish, off the coast of Kerry, Oct 95.

    Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-95:

    IRISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the
    South, to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: Recommend you divert your course
    15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.

    IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British navy ship. I say again, divert
    YOUR course.

    IRISH: Negative. I say again, you will
    have to divert your course

    BRITISH: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER HMS BRITIANNIA. THE SECOND LARGEST
    SHIP IN THE BRITISH ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS, AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY AGAIN, THAT IS 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

    IRISH: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

    ;P
