Dickie’s 1st Blog - Journalists Easy Life!!

6 people rate this

Journalists? Easy life. Swanning off around the world, luxing it up on expenses, topping up on your tan.

Yes, as one of Navy News’ reporting team, I do get around a bit. The Gulf. The Gulf. The Gulf. Faslane. Plymouth. The Gulf again.  A chance not to ‘do the Gulf’ was, unsurprisingly, seized with both hands, not least because I’ve never done a Med deployment. So thank you to the good ship Somerset for the invite.In five days aboard the frigate I learned more about NATO deployments than I had in a decade of writing about them from behind a desk in Portsmouth.

 

We could, of course, produce a newspaper based entirely on submissions from our ships and units scattered across the globe. But it wouldn’t be as good.
