Duty Watch In Dolphin


War Hero
There has been a comment made on the Australian submariners site that we were the only foreign trainees to keep duty watches whilst at Dolphin. All other foreign governments took the line that their people were there for training and they were not paying the RN to use their people for other duties. However the Australian government saw it differently/did not care.

Can anyone confirm this?

Can't comment about your lot, but every time we pulled in, I know we just stuck to our own duty watches and that was it... 8)
If you mean duty watches in the Fort Blockhouse i.e. inboard while on courses, waiting draft etc. I cannot assist. What I can say is that on SM 1 boats along side in my time we had for long or short periods Dinks, Canucks, Indian and Israel crew members all kept duty watches unless they had a blue/brown card job i.e.Cook etc.


PS Sudden thought in Dolphin 2 and then in Dolphin 1965 awaiting first draft we had a Dink, the only one who owned a car, who I use to go ashore with and he kept duties in Blockhouse with the rest of us.
