Sailors should be running the world

“Sailors, with their built-in sense of order and discipline, should really be running the world.”

Admiral (Lord) Louis Mountbatten

It is a little known fact (in American circles) that Lord Mountbatten was a signals officer (cryptologist/communicator?). He graduated first in his class from the Signals course. He was the senior Signals officer in the British Navy. He also wrote their first comprehensive text on wireless communications.
