    "The British nuclear submarine HMS Tireless is pictured above sailing into Gibraltar yesterday morning.

    The vessel was escorted by the Royal Navy’s Gibraltar Squadron and the Gibraltar Defence Police.

    Additionally, the submarine deployed its own general purpose machine guns mounted on top of the conning tower."

  3. Tut tut, Sir James should have been made aware that he should have descended first, nothing to do with looking up her kilt, should she be wearing one but more to do with breaking her fall should the dear lady slip on the ladder.

  5. "Additionally, the submarine deployed its own general purpose machine guns mounted on top of the conning tower."
