Please don't use the Airman's Hymn set to a traditional Royal Navy tune

It has been brought to our immediate attention that we should not use the Airman's Hymn set to the original hymn "Eternal Father Strong to Save".  This is a traditional and most treasured hymn used by the Royal Navy.  Please do not use the Airman's Hymn in its current setting: the words are fine but the music used may cause distress to those with a deep rooted love and feelings for the Royal Navy our senior service colleagues.
