Mirror: "What It's Like To Live On Nuclear Submarine HMS Victorious"

Nice report and stirs the blood at the sound of HMS Victorious, one thing that is similar to the old carrier is the shot of the 3 high bunks and their close proximity, 4 Mess had little hideaways like this, terrible places to try and escape from a a rip roaring fart.:pottytrain2:

Remember back in the 70's a report that gave the run down on Ruski GMD's, about a foot less deckhead room and 5 bunks up, the bottom one on the deck. Every other bit of space was given over to propulsion and armament.

The pillow fluffer is stretching it a bit here,
“You see someone towards the end of a patrol and think, ‘who on Earth are you?’” says Able Seaman John “Neep” Edward, 33.
“You can start a ­conversation with a friend at the ­beginning of a patrol, not see them for five or six weeks, then pick it up again where you left off.”
