This is the actual transcript of a radio conversation between a British Navy ship and the Irish Coastguard, off the coast of Kerry:
Irish: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south, to avoid collision.
British: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north, to avoid collision.
Irish: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid collision.
British: This is the Captain of a British Navy Ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
Irish: Negative. I say again, you will have to divert YOUR course
British: THIS IS THE LARGEST SHIP IN THE BRITISH FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY 3 DESTROYERS, 3 CRUISERS, AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT SHIPS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES TO THE NORTH, OR COUNTERMEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS FLOTILLA.
Irish: This is a lighthouse… YOUR CALL!
