* HMS BRISTOL, still in use in 2010, now uses the radio callsign of 2 A I T 7.

  ALTHOUGH THE ROYAL YACHT IS NOT STRICTLY A WARSHIP, HMY BRITANNIA WAS MANNED BY THE ROYAL NAVY UNDER THE COMMAND OF FORY - FLAG OFFICER ROYAL YACHTS.  WHY YACHTS YOU MAY ASK SINCE THERE WAS ONLY ONE SHIP.  IN DAYS GONE BY, THERE WERE SEVERAL VESSELS ALL IN THE DIRECT SERVICE OF THE MONARCH, AND THE TERM FORY IS A TERM FROM THOSE DAYS. THE BRITANNIA's RADIO CALLSIGN WAS 'GQXC'.  BEFORE 1953, THIS CALLSIGN WAS USED BY A SMALL BRITISH MERCHANT STEAM SHIP CALLED THE 'RUSSELL'.
