It's hard to reconcile that report with the knowledge that the writer is in his 40s. It's written in the style of a cub reporter who has been sent to cover a village fete. Considering his involvement with the flagship Newsnight programme, I am surprised at how lightweight this piece really is.
I wouldn't have let that creep from the BBC 10 miles near a ballistic armed submarine. Poor effort. Bet if you go to the Vengeance you will still see the piss stains on the forward access hatch ladder......very impressive...lol
You should have tried the O Boats then,they were really cramped,one deck and then the bilge! Oh happy days!
When I joined my first V Boat I could not believe that the SRs mess was just that and not a bunk space as well!
