In the 1960s a certain NAI (Phot) was aboard Finwhale to take a few publicity photographs over a couple of days. However he found himself under the arctic ice for the following 5 weeks. This is what he has written of his escapade;- "Those lads were not like the ones in the subs today, Finwhale was a diesel boat without showers. We used to alternate our no.8's week and week about without them being washed)The one thing that impressed me was the team-work and close comradeship amongst the crew. Never to be forgotten" No shower gel or facial wipes!
