Under the black waters of the Barent sea. In Conqueror. As the most significant of his carrer. Can anyone expand on this comment for me,please ? :thumright:

Can I just say (on a slight tangent) that I bought this book as it seemed to be a decent size but was disgusted on opening it to find that its all written in size 14 type, and that would would have actually been around 200 pages in a normally formatted paperback had been padded to just short of 400... :X

The op he is referring to was in the summer of 1982, and took place in the areas around the Barents sea. The rest is classified, but more information might be released in twenty-five year's time, along with the 'missing' control room log.

NO. I know, but it's classified (perhaps the clue is in the description of the Barents !!) The book was first published in early 2007, I assume the paperback version is now out ?

The XO of the Conquerer at the time was the Captain of HMS Cornwall when I served on her and was Squadron Captain also.

Who is now as I've found out now Vice Admiral Sir Tim McClement
