. Thank you. I was about to ask WreckerL about this. Do the officers stand the same watches?Wrecker, amount of damage they cause
Along side we have a duty watch, those that stay onboard over night to look after ship, within that day it is split into watches
Forenoon 08:00 to 12:00
Afternoon 12:00 to 16:00
1st dog 16:00 to 18:00
2nd dog 18:00 to 20:00
1st watch 20:00 to 00:00
Middle 00:00 to 04:00
At sea we have 2 watches, forward will normally work 6 hours on 6 hours off, within these 6 hours you will be closed up on watch, the rest of the time stood down on watch
ME back aft may do something similar to alongside watches
So, when the submarine is alongside do all the crew stay on board and takes turns at watch keeping or is there just a skeleton crew ?
How long are the crew given leave for when the boat alongside. I think it said in one of the YouTube videos I watched that after a 3 month deployment 3 weeks leave followed by another 3 months and another 3 weeks. Is this accurate?
