Now now Nutty we can't have ex-coppers telling porkies. I thought the RN did not emerge until a bit later than the Last Supper, and the first submarine was the Hunley sometime during the American Civil War. OK you know all that, but you were on the Hunley at some stage weren't you? :w00t:

WOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was part of the Job Description.

The Hunley was built around about 1861. In 1580 William Bourne sketched a design for a submarine, although there is no proof that it was actually built.
In 1623 a submarine, built buy Cornelius Drebel, made a submerged journey down the River Thames.

All right I'll throw in my sixpence worth.

I'd say old enough to know better, young enough to try. ^~

Is that the scenic part of Benidorm you see from the submarine caves or the beautifully-challenged part? :bball:

Enjoy your tot. Hope Mrs Nutty doesn't get too inebriated after her pint of rum? :thumright:

As everyone ought to know the first boat was designed by God. In those far off environmentally friendly days He had the foresight to design and construct an organic vessel whose engine ran very quietly though it did (& still does) have its own very distinct sonic signature. Its fuel like its exhaust products were ecosustainable.

God created the Submarine to patrol His Seas and assist His Chief Regulator, King Neptune, to maintain good order and naval discipline in all the salt water domains on Earth.

Nutty in the Days of Yore was better known by his Biblical name, Jonah. Jonah Head joined the Heavenly Navy known as the Heavenly Marines and quickly rose throught the ranks to become Able Seaman Jonah. In those days the ranking system in the Heavenly Marines (HM) was very flat comprising four ranks:

Marine (Mne) - a crawling sailor not yet able to walk - nozzer
Boy Seaman (BS) - a former Marine, now able to walk - trainee sailor
Able Seaman (AS) - trained sailor
Disabled Seaman (DS) - sailor past his 'use by' date

One fine day AB Jonah Head was securing his boat after tot time when God plucked him from his boat and put him in-charge of His first submarine: HMS/m Hval*. This vessel patrolled the Norwegian fjords carrying out the arduous and never ending task of hunting down and killing Seatrolls (Trollus normanus). Jonah was given a shipmate, BS Maxi who couldn't stop giggling when he spotted that Jonah's Muffler, which were worn both round the neck and as a lid to keep sailors' ears warm, had J.HEAD sewn on the end on red chain stitch. The cheeky lad nicknamed Jonah "Nutty". God however left this out of the Bible as he thought it mightly cheeky for a junior to show such disrespect to his superior.

That is how Nutty came to be the First Submariner.

*Hval is Norwegian for Whale.
