Needed? Surely "aye aye" suffices. The capitalisation is redundant, too. Otherwise we might also want "yes sir", "no ma'am", "maybe Your Majesty", etc (OK, I exaggerate a bit). — Paul G 16:57, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Well, according to the "Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea", it is an official Royal Naval phrase, with capitalisation, distinct from Aye Aye, which is the response to a hail. SemperBlotto 17:05, 11 Mar 2005 (UTC)
