Not a type 22 but a Class 22, a "Baby warship" no less with a stubby little nose

23.


Now hopefully while Mick is carefully pondering todays contribution, and I defer to his cribbage knowledge....but how about this?

Is it the appearance of "his nibs" which I assume is the Jack of Hearts which makes this 23?

PS.....Interesting bit of cribbage trivia and tradition in the US Navy

Spot on Neil, "one for his nibs", or "one for his knob" are the expressions used to describe the one point scored for holding a jack of the same suit as the turned up card. Thus the 23 hand is very similar to the 22 but with jacks as the pair as you posted, but I'll put up my one which, in good old Blue Peter tradition, I had prepared earlier: :-D

In order to find some originality today I fear I have strayed into an alien world, one of drugs and medicines which are a complete blank in my knowledge base so make of this what you will: :-D

No, the Borgward is a much better choice Neil even if it is German..

Actually, the 2.3 oil-burning Sierra does have a French Connection...

the reference to the oil burner was the Ford 2.3 diesel Sierra

"The Sierra also had a diesel option on the engine, namely at launch the 2.3 L normally aspirated 67 PS (49 kW; 66 hp) Indenor diesel made by Peugeot. This engine was also used in contemporary Granadas and whilst reliable and economical it made an unrefined, noisy and very slow vehicle, but remained a popular option for Taxi firms."

...the Oil Burner itself was a Peugeot

Here's a bit of a bid for todays vehicle if you know your frigates, but what is she called?

That in the background is Guzz as Royal Navy folk call it Steve. HMS Northumberland's homecoming from December 2014 when the FCF last did its advent calendar thing :-D

This Gobo especially for Gibbo, of course! \:D/
