Australians having none of it

BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Iran ‘unable to take Australians’

Iranian naval forces in the Gulf tried to capture an Australian Navy boarding team but were vigorously repelled, the BBC has learned.

Well, further evidence as if it were needed that the Iranians had been planning to take some sailors, I really don’t think that they cared whose sailors, for their propaganda purposes. Clearly they had perfected it by the time that they took the British sailors. These Australians had time to clamber back aboard the ship they were searching. The British sailors were caught in the middle of the ocean.

The question is why didn’t the Royal Navy take more care after hearing about this incident?
