The Bilge Pumps

Bilgepumps Episode 48: Messing with Mustin

Episode Summary

Episode 48... and this is a very carrier orientated discussion... We talk USS Mustin, we talk air group composition, we talk propaganda; pretty much the Bilgepumps crew of Alex, Drach/Davros and Jamie - who is still mourning his EAS Churchill, a model of which was unfortunately damaged in an accident a long time ago. However, he overcame the pain and was able to spend a good seventy minutes chatting through recent carrier related news and some of Alex's more zany ideas - Alex having received his second covid vaccine dose on the day of recording. #Bilgepumps is still a newish series and new avenue, which may no longer boast the new car smell, in fact we probably smell more like our pets, poodles, gerbils and a corgi... the latter especially of course appropriate for this week's episode. But we're getting the impression it's liked, so we’d very much like any comments, topic suggestions or ideas for artwork to be tweeted to us, the #Bilgepump crew (with #Bilgepumps), at Alex (@AC_NavalHistory), Drach (@Drachinifel), and Jamie (@Armouredcarrier). Or you can comment on our Youtube channels (listed down below).
