Government cuts have hit all departments and the MoD (Ministry of Defence) is no exception.

A MoD spokesman said: “With the budget cuts, we’ve had to make every penny count and when these came up for sale on eBay it was too good an opportunity to miss.”

The ships in question are German warships over 100 years old and sitting at the bottom of Scapa Flow in the Orkneys.

The spokesman said: “Raising them will be good practise for the young ‘uns and we’ll get some of the apprentices to do a refit. We might even get the Ordinance department involved.

“If we can get them to float we can use them to teach the lads what the parts of the ship are in German, and how old German ships worked. That sort of thing.

“They won’t be as nippy as our modern ships but they’ll thwack the hide off the commies, eh?

“And when they’re not doing that we might use them to shuttle sandwiches and the like between ships. You know, if one runs out of ham sandwiches, they could swap them for egg sandwiches on another ship. That sort of thing.”

When asked how much it would cost to raise and refit the ships, the spokesman said:”We don’t have exact costings yet but we anticipate somewhere in the region of £782m-983m. It’s a bargain. You can’t even get a couple of second-hand Challengers for that.”
