Hello. I am looking at joining the Navy and in particular the submarine service. I have a few question and I have been trawling through the search engine (and enjoyed the stories!) 1) What duties could I expect to be doing as a TSM? I have read the publications and watched the short video and I know it's along the lines of presenting a tactical picture but how would I actually do that? 2) How much storage space would I have has a newbie on boats? How much stuff can you take on a deployment with you? Obviously I appreciate that space is limited but I am just curious really! 3) Would I be streamed onto one class of submarine for my whole career? 4) What is life at sea like? Is it a myth that you cannot shower very much on boats? I know space is limited but do you have much fitness equipment on board? I watched submarine mission on channel 5 and I think they only had a rowing machine. Is that standard? 5) How has females coming onto boats affected recruitment? Are they going to start implementing females onto boats with volunteers from the surface fleet first or recruits from HMS Raleigh? I KNOW these are probably mega bone questions but I am just asking out of curiosity and don't really want to ask them down the AFCO in case they think I am a joke! Thank you.
