A blast from the past: Britannia rules the waves

UK navy seizes pirate 'mothership'

I also liked a bit of related news in the last paragraph:
British and U.S. forces freed the cargo ship [the Montecristo] in a dramatic rescue last week after retrieving a message in a bottle tossed by hostages from a porthole alerting ships nearby that the crew was safely sealed inside an armored area.

A message in a bottle. How high tech.
