The town of Ajax, in Ontario, Canada, was named after the cruiser following the Battle of the River Plate. The town also has streets named after every member of the ship's company, such as Hobson Avenue, and Harwood Avenue, which is the town's main north-south street. Many street signs in the town bear the silhouette of the ship. The silhouette signifies the street being named after part of the ship's company, and the ship's anchor rests in front of the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Ajax's bell is on a monument in Montevideo, just outside the port customs house, and was donated by Admiral Sir Henry Harwood and Sir Eugen Millington-Drake in 1949.

Norwegian navy?  They seem to sink easily.. 

Rule 19 applies between two boats at an obstruction except 
(a) when the obstruction is a mark the boats are required to leave 
on the same side, or
(b) when rule 18 applies between the boats and the obstruction is 
another boat overlapped with each of them.
However, at a continuing obstruction, rule 19 always applies and rule 
18 does not.
19.2 Giving Room at an Obstruction
(a) A right-of-way boat may choose to pass an obstruction on 
either side.
(b) When boats are overlapped, the outside boat shall give the 
inside boat room between her and the obstruction, unless she 
has been unable to do so from the time the overlap began.

(c) While boats are passing a continuing obstruction, if a boat that 
was clear astern and required to keep clear becomes 
overlapped between the other boat and the obstruction and, at 
the moment the overlap begins, there is not room for her to 
pass between them, she is not entitled to room under rule 
19.2(b). While the boats remain overlapped, she shall keep 
clear and rules 10 and 11 do not apply

OK, I thought that was funny. 

It would have been more accurate if there were a bunch of fat drunk sailors hanging out on the navy ship watching the show....

That’s not very typical, I’d like to make that point.

Is it an obstruction if it gets out of the way? (With a bit of a nudge.)
