The Bilge Pumps

Bilgepumps Episode 50: It's a pondering of Aircraft Carriers, Ship Design & Fluffy Research Assistants

Episode Summary

Episode 50, so it's the regular crew, Alex, Drach & Jamie... but this week the starting point is some photos of HMS Queen Elizabeth's hangar and then we work on through all the naval news of the last week, under the watchful eyes of our Fluffy Research Assistants. #Bilgepumps is the not quite a year of podcasts series, 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).
