The Royal Navy’s most advanced attack submarine was tugged from Devonshire Dock at BAE Systems Submarine Solutions at lunch time today (Saturday).

The Telegraph today states that "Astute" is the first R.N. submarine to have individual bunks for all crewmembers.
Are all other R.N. submarines still using hotbunking?

Conjoined, conjoined!! What's wrong with alongside? No doubt they were conjoined by a conjoint or is that just conjecture?
Alongside implies something is ready to slip and proceed, IIRC Astute was supposed to be operational in 2007. Standing by to be corrected :)

Going back to acient history we had bunks for all the crew in Warspite, the 24 temporary bunks in the fore ends were for riders when we went north and trainees for the Cs and Ss being built. With so many boats being built and only 2 at sea training billets were like gold dust.
