A common grammar mistake is to refer to British warships using the shortened prefix as "... the HMS XYZ". Think about how that translates into longhand as ".... the Her Majesty's Ship XYZ". That's why the correct form should always appear as "... HMS XYZ".

However, American editors will be accustomed to referring to US warships as "... the USS XYZ", and this makes perfect sense when seen in longhand format as "... the United States Ship XYZ".

I hope this helps. (talk) 08:54, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Container Port[edit]

I came here for information on the Container Port currently run by DP_World but there is none at all! When was it built? Expanded? What is theCapacity? All I've garnered is that it's the 2nd deepest in UK (after Felixstowe). Pretty sure there's almost as much to say about the Container port as there is the Cruise terminal (talk) 08:36, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
