Interesting pic Bob, any clever tecchy that can blow the pic up enough to read the numbers on the Fins.
Amphion definately had a gun on out there, I have sent the pic on to a mate who was on the Andrew at the same time, to see if he can throw any light on when the guns were fitted

I was matching up what I could make out of the numbers with boats known to be in the area together with other pics, mainly water level taken of three boats published in Janes 64/65. o secret tecky device I am afraid hence the ?.

Super picture. Anyone got one of the A boats alongside in SM2 i.e. Tyne, Forth/Defiance?

Dear Boat spotters,

Can someone please explain the attraction people have with pictures of ships going through big waves or boats tied together? As a bootie this aspect of the RN is absolutely beyond me!

There is clearly a genetic difference between those who get 'excited' and those who don't. I suspect the exited group had childhood problems ranging from being bullied, and finding it hard to bond with others at school, to having to wear all the hand downs from an older sibling (probably of the opposite sex!).

As a side issue have any of you celebrated your 40th (+) birthday at home whilst still living with your mother? :lol: :lol: :lol:

The inboard one seems to be 23, middle one 47, the outboard one can't read at all.

But then Spider Monkey we are not attracted to large chunky wrist watches with leather, Cord or stainless steel straps that will still be water proof at 900 feet depth. No do we have any interest in wrestling mats or the best brand of gell/jelly, KY or other for use in naked wrestling.

Wassup is it the steroids make you lot stupid or is it the frontal labotamy you get when you join…something to think about …this is the submariners forum, say`s so on the door ..so there`s a good chance when you enter you will see stuff about… erm, submarines. yes…if you have a problem with that then don`t start carping on about peoples posts ….just drag your knuckles off somewhere (anywhere) else.
