What happened to loose lips sinking ships?

Australia’s largest warship is being hampered by new mechanical problems, placing limits on its speed, just months after suffering a complete power failure during a humanitarian mission to Tonga…

A source on board the ship, who spoke to the ABC on condition of anonymity, claimed the Navy had been aware of the problem for the past two months.

“It has been broken since the ship got back to Australia in March, it now has a 12 knots maximum speed, which is not great for the emergency response vessel,” the person said.

I presume communicating the operational status of a warship is a prosecutable military offence.

    Heh. Predictive reading – I saw that as a humiliating mission.

    Perhaps it’s time to donate it to Ukraine.
