Under Siege

By DeusExMacintosh

Navy Seal boards HMS Bulwark

A seal has boarded a Royal Navy amphibious-assault ship as it was about to carry out military exercises near Carnoustie.

HMS Bulwark was making preparations for the multinational training exercise Joint Warrior when the seal swam up the ship’s landing dock.

The animal sat and watched the crew for about half an hour. It was only when an officer approached the seal that it swam away.

Air Aviation Officer, Lt Sarah Filshie, said: “It’s rather unusual to have a seal actually come on board, but he seemed very inquisitive and interested in what we were up to.”

And as difficult as it is for me to believe that someone has NOT seen the movie, it’s actually not too bad.

    That seal looks more grey than navy, but I agree about the movie being not half bad, apart from Tommy Lee’s overacting. The second one (I think ‘In Dark Territory’) wasn’t too bad either.

    Incidentally, there’s one old guy briefly featured in Under Siege that I’m sure pops up in a much later movie using the Missouri (‘Battleship’: aliens attack, Missouri defends) so I’m assuming he’s part of the permanent honour crew or some such?

    Seals can be very problematic. A late adolescent/early adult seal decided to camp on the beach of the small town my grandson lived in a few years ago. I am NOT talking about a sea lion, but one of the biggies. He decided a motorbike parked overnight nearby should be part of his (otherwise null set) harem and because enthusiastically amorous towards “her” – successfully for the seal, and successfully for the local scrap metal dealer.

    I actually thought TLJ was the highlight of that flick (yes he was acting for two, somebody had to as Seagal can’t). You might recognise a couple of the oldsters around the navy high table too, they turned up as cops in The Fugitive and a few other action cameos I’ve spotted but can’t remember off the top of my head. The same way Glenn Plummer seems to have an automatic spot in any Jerry Bruckheimer movie.
