BBC 'Drunk Royal Navy sailors arrested on Florida shore leave'

surprising Brit navy drunk on shore when they can drink on board or has that changed?
Yes I know the ozzie navy banned form all ports in Australia and overseas

They can drink onboard.

Run ration was banned in 1970.

What’s a Brit sailor to do? On liberty in Florida he is supposed to be “getting pissed with me mates.” No worries about the occasional fight. And of course, enjoying the companionship of those American girls who consider a British accent to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.

The QE has a Pub onboard called “The Queen’s Head” or something like that. There is a news article floating around on the internetz somewhere.
