Bombers or T/A-Boats?

From my now very outdated experience I found SSN work far more interesting and thus managed to avoid Booming completely. In SSNs each operating period is different, you can end up in other countries, you do do port visits occasionaly, and the actual work at sea does vary. On the other hand many find the stability of the boomers more comforting.

if you are new....stay away from bombers..

imagine your life, going to sea for 10-12 weeks, having no contact with home then come home...maybe a foreign visit once every decade if you are lucky...

SSNs you can be doing anything and everything....give SSNs a go then if you dont like it, go to the dark side

If Faslane still operates a 'Spare Crew' system, that's the place to be.

SR & WO's mess is first class. So are the bar prices too.

Nearly as cheap as Miss Chrystals :santa: . (For those with long memories)

Merry Christmas.

Pete.

Cheers Pete. I've asked for a bomber, the die has been cast.
