    Good luck lads, I wish I was part of the crew. Another legend is born!
  2. Great!
  3. Bless all who sail in her

    (ps - bit concerned about the wisdom of dishing out guns to Submariners. Bit like giving fire water to the Indians!)
  4. wow...what a piece of kit
  5. Just seen the picture on page 14 of the Daily Telegraph of the Duchess.

    The Matelot in the middle with the set looks like me as a 24 year old. Poor bugger.
  6. Bon Voyage(s)
  7. All the best for her new crew :D
  8. Particularly the Dusties. If they read this stuff, they might know what I mean. [​IMG]
  9. A great boat. But, and don't quote me on this, I think her pipework and cabling might just reach a tad further than from Glasgow to Dundee.

    I hate to pi55 on a party!! Can't wait for a call round!!
  10. Woo! That is good news. Bon Voyage! you can dismantle her and make a massive cable-pipe from Glasgow to Dundee, and drive four London buses along it.
  11. Glad to see she is ours at last

    There was another clip on a BBC news just before the weekend but I can't find it separately on i-Player, and I only caught the tail end of it. In this a junior rate was showing his bunk space. I gather each bod has his own bunk nowadays? Getting soft are they? and he had a locker for 'toiletries' which I am sure are a considerable novelty in the submarine world, leading-edge stuff.
  13. Don't believe everything you see on TV even if it is in colour.The rating said he had a locker for "toiletries" but didn't say what was actually in there.Why waste space on such friperies,stow them in the "not required on voyage storage".
