Admirals without Navy?

Some Latin American countries have Admirals but no Navy and Britain is reaching the point when we could be compared to Bolivia - a landlocked Latin American country that used to have access to the Pacific Ocean before losing a war against Chile. The Daily Telegraph tells the story with a headline: No warships left defending Britain after Defense cutbacks.

In last year's defense review, budget cuts left Britain with 19 frigates. The loss of aircraft carriers is vox populi. They say that two plane carriers will be delivered in ten years time but without airplanes and talks continue to try and see if America and France will provide what is needed to protect Britain.
