Hats off to DFID’s communications team for a classy graphical overview of the humanitarian assistance that the UK has sent to the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.
There’s just one problem: the warship silhouettes. The top one is supposed to represent HMS Illustrious – but even I can tell the difference between the silhouette above and what Illustrious actually looks like (h/t Wikipedia):
So what is the silhouette in the DFID graphic? In fact, as is now being gleefully pointed out on Facebook by people who know what they’re talking about on matters maritime, it turns out that it’s… er… the Russian aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov. D’oh!
