Now I realise it isn't... Oops.. I should rephrase that!!! Until I met him I thought it was a myth but he explained to me that there really were no proper washing facilities on board. Yuk!
What is this codswallop about Submariners not having washing facilities????? We had a laundry which washed our gear everyday, and we could iron it ourselves in the mess, and a byproduct of Nuclear Power was an abundance of fresh water, so we could take a shower everyday, ( if we wanted) We as Catering branch personell showered daily, (mainly together) lol
